Well that was a failure

Normally when I get up in the morning, I'm more about lumbering and staggering than I am about moving fluidly. My body is usually stiff, and a little sore. As the day wears on, I can work the kinks out. Which is part of the reason why I don't like working out in the morning.

The last 2 weeks, I've done ok with push ups in the morning before I shower, but doing more than that is usually off the table.

Since I have a class tonight, called power core, I thought I'd try and get ETK done this morning. When I did ETK followed by "Boot Camp" last Thursday I showed them up, but would have liked more time between the two to rest / relax.

Unfortuantly ETK this morning was a failure to launch. I couldn't get my body to move right. The wall squats were horrid. The halos, with 12kg bell were burning my shoulders and not that fun to do. The pumps, I had to do from child (yoga position) since I couldn't get into Downward facing dog.

After only getting 2.5 rounds finished in 8 minutes, I decided to call the work out. Wasn't really warmed up, and the body was fighting me. I didn't even want to try and lift 24kg over head and go through all the planes of motion. I knew it would be a bad idea.

So I'm going to go to work and grind through the day. Then when I get home I'll try ETK week 2 day 2 again. Maybe I'll be in a better body set.

Some days are just like this. The longer you make morning workouts a habit, the more your body will become accustomed to them. Musta been in the air today though because I'm another one who just was NOT hitting a groove for the workout.

True, but I came back like Gang Busters tonight. 2 workouts with about 45 minutes rest between them.

As long as you don't let the down times get you down you can kick it back and win.

So are you doing any RKC teaching yet?
