Someone recently told me that workout pain is temporary, so it’s become my new mantra and I chant it constantly in my head. This is temporary, this is temporary, this is temporaryyyyyy!!! Although my mind is starting to believe it, it still refuses to send the memo to my aching muscles. Perhaps it’s time to revisit the warm salt water pool. Or maybe I just shouldn’t go skating right before training, but that would just make too much sense now would it? I am however thankful that the ice was kind to me today and I have no falls or ramming into the boards incidents to report, but none of that will matter by the end of today’s training session.
I ran into RubbySlippers in the locker room before our session today, and since I had my stuff on the bench in front of my locker, she looked over at my hockey helmet and said “Oh, good you brought your helmet you’re gonna need it! *evil grin* see ya in 5”…I sat there for a few minutes actually considering wearing the helmet and maybe gloves just in case, JK, but no seriously the thought crossed my mind. RubySlippers still had to search around the trainer counter for the ever elusive pen trying to be all tough and serious about it, it’s rather amusing. Today she promised to be good about not giving away any Walking Dead spoilers, unless she decides I’m slacking off, so we’ll see how that goes. On our way to the weight room we discuss guilty pleasures and the possibility of giving up cereal… *Sigh* I’ll miss you Corn Pops & Reese’s Puffs, like cookies, they too will be “a sometimes snack”.
Why? Why?? Why??? Well a few reasons but the main ones are, one unlike Victoria’s secret, these hips don’t lie, and two well those silly calorie numbers you can check out in my previous post Guilt-Free Cookies On Sunday: A Work In Progress
