Back in the Gym 3: Conquering Fears

This week I went back to Eric for a quick post-run workout.  His idea this week wasn’t so quick and it involved one of my fears: jumping.

4 mile (icy) run (33:36)

1.     20 Box Jumps
2.     Walking Lunge with Curl AND Press 8# x10
3.     Squat with Single Arm Row 17.5# x10 each
4.     10 Push Ups

4 times through.  No rest between exercises.  2 minute rest in between rounds.

This was the first time in my life attempting a box jump.  If you know me, you know I can’t jump.  I stared at the box for about 10 minutes before the first round deciding if I should just go home or not.  After I got through the first jump I realized the faster I jumped, the less I thought about what I was actually doing and it was easy.
