Happy Endurance Day! Wow, they reeeeaaallly want us to get better at endurance, don’t they? Maybe I have a different perspective now because I am trying to jog… but it feels like every day is endurance day now. When she saw me making grumpy face about it, Reina told me that my Endurance push pace didn’t need to be the same as my push pace on other kinds of workouts and I’m all, OH, REVELATION! I sort of thought that if I did a higher push pace, I was committed to doing that or better from that point forward FOREVER AND EVER. Huh, different tactics for different workouts.

Also, new-to-me Coach Tiffany today! I liked her immediately because her voice is super clear and easy to follow, and she played something I didn’t know that ended up being perfect rowing music. Is it weird that with new coaches, I would recognize her voice again before her face? Also, I totally don’t blame her for the 3-minute pushes. I don’t. Not. At. All.

So great coaching voice, but also I like her because she didn’t call me out when I was flailing around like a bug on its back. And she didn’t call us out on our Holiday Bellies and give us modifications like Dru did last week… he called them “pregnancy modifications” but we all knew what he really meant.

But we’re only like 2 weeks from the Transformation Challenge! No more Holiday Bellies! I’m back into my healthy eating and the past three days have been brutal. It’s not that I even miss the holiday food, it’s just that my body is all, WTF, why do we need all of this protein, where is the cheese and sugar Mindy?!? And I explained to my Panda Belly that cheese isn’t the greatest source of protein for building muscle, and so it is (grudgingly) on board.
