This will be the final leg torture that we video before the marathon. I can’t believe I’ve been doing these awful workouts for almost three months now. My fitness level has improved drastically because of these specific workouts – in addition to the running.
I’ve always had strong legs, I could out-squat many of the football players in high school weighing only 98 pounds – but never, that I can remember, have I ever had abdominal or upper body strength. Now I do, it’s just hidden under a muffin of midriffical whale blubber. But strength is there, believe me. And I like feeling strong. Yes, I do.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that we’ve gone down in weight these past few weeks, and the next few leg torture weeks will be very light as I taper for Chicago – Only twenty days away. Yikes.
I’d like to dedicate this final video to my friend/trainer and Master Videographer Extraordinaire, Cindy. I couldn’t have got here without you. I can’t believe I’m getting sentimental about these horrible hour-long torture sessions. I’m a very sick person. Cindy even gave me the over-used and abused paper plates to keep as a reminder of all the hard work I’ve done. Thanks Cindy, I’ll treasure them forever.
It’s a long video, but if you stick it out to the end, it will be worth your while.
