Today is day 108 of my 60 day pull up challenge. Still can’t do a pull up. I’m getting closer each week, though! I’m feeling strong, and healthy.
Today I was in a Barre class, and a beginner was right next to me. I couldn’t help but notice her struggling. It didn’t make me happy to watch her have a hard time, but it did make me happy reflecting on how I was her exactly 108 days ago!
Today I kept up with the whole class. It was still incredibly challenging (as it always should be), but it felt so great to reflect on how far I have come with my strength!
I spoke with her a little bit. She goes to many of the cardio-based classes. She mentioned she gets more benefit from cardio. I couldn’t help but think about how backwards that is, and how I used to believe that same thing.
Now my method flopped, and I do cardio a couple/few times a week but put WAY more emphasis on the strength training. And, I’m the most fit I’ve been so far. I’m really starting to believe in the power of strength training.
