1st Real Workout
We had our first workout today. Things went pretty well. Vionna didn't try to kill us or anything.
We started out doing five minutes on the ellipticals. Not bad at all.
Then we moved on. By far the strangest part was the American Gladiator style game of catch. (These pictures are a reenactment. We were much further apart for the real one.)
Devra seemed to have some trouble with the balancing part of this exercise. She fell off of her half ball a lot.
I would kick Devra's ass at American Gladiators. Maybe next time Vionna will let us use those padded sticks.
It was a beautiful day and we worked out outside almost the whole time. Devra said it felt like a vacation but I cannot recall any vacations I have ever gone on that involved push ups.
Here is a super flattering picture of me doing a squat.
I left the workout feeling pretty good but two and a half hours later I am starting to feel sore.
I've got a couple more pictures here. Vionna assured us that next week we would take pictures of us doing "the plank" and "Superman" for supreme embarrassment.
All in all it was a really good work out. I felt challenged but I never once cried or felt like I was going to die.
Let me know if you guys have any picture requests.
