I’ve never been a fan of weight training. I know I need to do it, but I hate it, so I avoid it. For most of the summer, I have sporadically used our Bowflex to try to gain strength. This past week, I also went to the weight room at the gym, and last night I did floor exercises (planks, back extensions, ab work).
Ow. Ow, ow, ow. Oh my, this is why I don’t like strength training – it HURTS! I know it’s good for me. I’m going to keep doing it. I also know if I want to ever consider qualifying for a police job, I need to build strength. And so I continue, hoping that eventually the muscle soreness will pass and I’ll learn to like weights. After all, it took me 18 months to learn to love to run. 🙂 I’ll get there.
