Spartan has returned to his home far away and I am left to survive the next month waiting until we are together again. Less than a month.
While he was here we went to the gym a couple of times so that Spartan could demonstrate his newest and most advanced torture techniques to me. One of the exercises involves putting an exercise ball up on a flat bench and then using your upper body to hold the rest of your body stable while you proceed to lift your legs up into the air into a 45 degree angle. I thought; um... are we going to be trying out for that new Circus of the Stars show? Like hell I can do that - but surprisingly I did... the one exercise I couldn't quite master was the one where you roll out onto the exercise ball and using one toe to balance in a plank position preform a set of push ups... I could only hold myself in the plank position - no push ups. Something to aim for at any rate.
My arms were so sore that I couldn't lift a blueberry to my mouth and had to lean my face into the plate this morning.
By the time I catch up to Spartan in the gym - I will be able to be a contender on the Gladiator program.
Hope all of you guys are enjoying your summer! Now I'm off to catch up with what all of you guys have been up to all week...
