I’ve been a huge fan of Bob Harper for several years now since I started watching the show “The Biggest Loser.” I love his ability to motivate people and he’s such a kind, compassionate person.
I’ve been working out with his DVDs for a couple of years, but I always do the beginner workouts. The hour-long workout was something that I’ve been afraid to try. I finally decided to give one a try last week. I made it through half of the workout before I decided that I was done. My arms and legs felt like cooked spaghetti! I was cussing out Bob! For several days after, my glutes were really sore. However, a couple of days later I did the workout again, and I was able to do it for 45 minutes. Improvement!
Yesterday was week two and I was able to do about 50 minutes, but I also noticed that I was stopping to rest less frequently and some of the things that I had problems doing last week were getting a bit easier. I’m really excited about this workout! It’s a new challenge, and I really think it’s going to firm up my arms, core, and strengthen my legs, which is going to be beneficial for my running.
These days, I find myself looking for new physical challenges: I’m trying to run farther distances, I’m looking for workouts to make myself stronger, I’m hooked on hiking, and my husband and I are talking about getting bikes and doing an annual bike race across the state of Iowa next summer. This healthy life is AWESOME!
