That was the lesson at the gym tonight. Courtney is back, after several weeks dealing with a very sad family medical issue. And she was back with a vengeance.
She made me plank with my hands on a medicine ball. I didn't think I could. I could.
We upped my weights....18-pound kept bell swings with squats, 80 pounds on the leg press, and when I said I couldnt squat because of my knees, she gave a me a look.
"When was the last time you tried?"
I had no answer. "You are stronger than you think, just try."
And I lunged. Didn't lose my balance, didn't go super low, but still felt my leg muscles.
Carbs would have been lower but I was starving after the gym and had a half of a protein bar. I think I'll be ok :)
