I love working out. Yes, I do complain when my trainer is pushing me especially during high- intensity interval training (HIIT). I have a love/hate relationship for HIIT simply because of the interval training and no rest until your finish with a set, which can take up all your energy.

            No Pain No Gain! I mutter those words yesterday when I was working out after already hurting my hip and legs from my leg day workout. While I am about pushing my body to new limits I am not about hurting my body. Yesterday was upper body training so I pushed through the run with my hip hurting, and told myself “I am taking it light today” while knowing maybe I should have taken a day off. While I push my body I know my body was hurting, but I didn’t want to stop. Continue reading “O No I am in Pain”
