I did not want to work out today. We were out late last night, I was tired, and we spent the morning at the beach with friends. I forced myself to get dressed for the gym since I had to take the kids there for soccer. Then I forced myself to run just one mile. And I shaved another 7 seconds off my fastest mile time. I'm now at 10:42 and bound and determined to beat a 10 minute mile by the end of 2013.

Then I had to go work out with my personal trainer. He's definitely crazy, employing all sorts of things he calls "contraptions" but which are truly just thinly veiled torture devices. I had no idea what I'd have left to give during that work out, but there was another woman there who's also pretty intense and I get very competitive, so I turned beast mode on and killed it!

I love tabata circuits so much. And the heavy ropes are absolutely my favourite thing. I do like working with a trainer because I get good feedback and he pushes me to try things I never would do on my own. Plus, I can't just talk myself out of the workout. All in all, I'm so glad I went, and so glad I pushed myself. I am so much stronger and more capable than I know!

    Tabata sounds really interesting.
