I don't want to go...
I have another trainer session in 34 minutes. I have to leave soon to get to the gym, get dressed, and get warmed up in time.

whine I don't want to go whine

This is one of those moments where the fiscal motivation ("You're be out forty five bucks if you don't.") is what's moving my lazy ass.

So....

How did it go? Are you glad you went?

My arms hurt.

I'm glad I went, I just wasn't glad while I was there.

I'm sure it won't always be that hard. You're probably tired after the weekend.
I was glad I went today--very energizing, but then, it wasn't a training session -- I just did the way fun EC. Woo hoo!

Rode my bike home again today. As an additional challange I rode all the way in the highest gear. Woof woof woof!!!

It's always this hard.

The only way I know I'm getting stronger is by noticing the larger and larger weight racks, or by looking at the trainer chart. Every time feels about equally hard (With a few exceptions, the first time I did legs I got so nausiated I needed smelling salts to walk).

I am told that what eventually happens is not that the time in the gym gets any easier, or that the felt effort gets any lighter, but that instead the rest of the world outside the gym gets lighter and easier.

I've already started noticing this, not with brute strength but with endurance.

But it doesn't make the gym any easier.
