|Borrowed from the internet - what this looks like|
This was a moment where being stubborn and determined was helpful. I knew I was going to do the 40 or get to a point where F'in Alex would take pity on me (realizing it was actually too hard and I was trying my best) and tell me to stop.
At one point we had a conversation that went like this:
FA: "How many is that?"
FA: "You still have a long way to go."
K10: Pause and a look over at FA "F**k off Alex."
Laughter from F'in Alex and Sam. It has been a number of weeks since I have told F'in Alex off. I have been trying to swear at him less. I still swear, but not directly at him, but this time he totally deserved it!
The last ones were not pretty, but I completed my 40 high to low plank in a fairly reasonable time. It is not an exercise I love (cause there are only like 3 of those, but for another post), but it isn't blacklist material either. There is something about the body weight exercises that are more motivating for me. I want to see I can do them, even though I know how sore my abs are going to be after! (As I prep this post I am sure that at some point F'in Alex kicked me in the ribs!)
