This week was definitely more difficult than last week. Starting with yoga/pilates and running up and down the stairwell of a four-story building, to more running mechanics with Carlos, a heck of a lot of ab work with Bobby and then ending with "Burpees" with Brannon (don't let the name fool you - they're killer), I have sore muscles in places I didn't know I had muscles! Although I haven't noticed any significant changes in how my clothes fit, I know that if I am patient that time willl come. The weekend is here and I'm going to try to watch my caloric intake and get in some weight training exercise on my own at Clay Madsen on Saturday morning - maybe a run on Sunday after church. Week 3, here we come!
Wow ... our third week of the program and I am definitely feelin' it. I've always known I've had more muscles than I'm used to using, but OMG, I haven't felt them in a long time, and they hurt! Our second workout with Brannon at Crossfit didn't feel as "bad" as the first, but I'll know Saturday morning just how the two compare!
I am so glad I decided to do the program, I'm sure about half way through I might not be, but in the long run, it will all be worth it!!!
On Monday, October 21, the participants received a lesson in Yogalates, a program offered at Clay Madsen Recreation Center. Patti Grant and Atalie Price demonstrated stretches and taught participants some basic moves to improve flexibility and strength.
In addition to a Yogalates class, the participants spent an hour with our Round to Rock trainers which I heard included an outdoor run and some strenuous indoor exercising!
Eleven lucky participants in the Round to Rock program kicked off their fitness transformations on Monday, Sept 14 at Seton Medical Center Williamson. The 11 participants divided into teams and while one group learned about proper nutrition and how to decipher what to eat and what to buy in the grocery store, another group did their fitness assessment which involved jumping jack warmups, situps, pushups, and initial weigh-ins. The participants include: Mayor Alan McGraw, State Representative Diana Maldonado, Sharesa Alexander, Teresa Bledsoe, Nate Edwards, Robert Edwards, Bob Eskridge, Jessica Iroanya, Michelle Palmer, Teresa Ramirez, and Brian Sedatole.
On Tuesday, Sept 15 they worked out from noon - 2 with fitness trainer Carlos Vega for some exercise! Follow this blog to keep track of the latest workouts, nutrition and exercise tips from the Round to Rock Participants. For more information on the program visit www.roundtorock.com
