Midsection Makeover Program: Days 6 to 8

It’s with a great sense of pride and relief to tell you that I stuck to Holly Perkins’ schedule on this particular Saturday.  I hit the treadmill for a brisk cardio walk and followed up with three sets of thirty All 4’s Crunches.  Once again, I was laid out on the floor after the crunches but felt exhilarated to complete the tasks properly.  I don’t like to mess up my own schedule, far the less for skipping her workouts.  This was the last workout for the week, and quite frankly I was relieved.  I needed Day 7 to fully recover in order to follow the Midsection Makeover Program.

Monday, Day 8, was supposed to be when I fully recommitted to complete every single workout without fail…until 3:00 pm when the news hit.  The Boston Marathon had been bombed.  I was distraught and became physically ill.  It was traumatic and I couldn’t bring myself to put on my workout gear.  The very thought of getting on the treadmill brought tears to my eyes.  As the running community pulled itself together, so did I and would rejoin the program at Day 9 for Boston.  No retreat, no surrender and no excuses!
