Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.
Saturday was our first bike/swim class with the 6-pack. Again, we laughed like no tomorrow. The things we talked about during our spin time sure makes an hour fly by. During spin we all wore heart monitors, which helped us figure out how hard we were actually working. During the first part of the workout, I thought I was working out hard but little did I know I wasn’t working out hard enough. I had to step it up. What a difference that made!
When we got to the swim portion, I was actually nervous. I swam a season in High School and I was nervous that I had lost everything I had learned during that season. I jumped into the pool and I swam. My nerves went away and I was able to swim without any problems. I just need to get my endurance back up. Our two hour workout was amazing and the best stress reliever.
When you first start taking a spin class your butt hurts. It needs to get used to sitting on a tiny, uncomfortable seat. After taking many spin classes I can finally say my butt no longer hurts. I know most of you don’t want to hear about my butt hurting but that was a huge milestone.
Another week of training down…another week to start training just a little more than the week before……
