Are YOU willing to do what it takes to get what YOU want?!?!

Had my second session with the trainer this morning.
I had to go before work (!) because I wanted to do it today and he was booked tonight. It wasn't that it was that hard to get up and get myself there, it was all the prep I had to do last night and all the stuff I had to take with me! Since the gym is on the way to work it made no sense to come back home so I had to take my work clothes along, something to eat for breakfast after the workout and then of course my lunch. That meant I needed to figure out exactly what to wear last night and to get my lunch together which are 2 things I always put off till the morning!
So the first thing he had me do today was run some intervals on the TM. On an 8.0 incline! At 6 mph! At least they were only 30 seconds long but wow that was interesting so early in the morning!
Then we did some upper body stuff on the TRX trainer. Yikes! I have been wanting to try that so bad and finally got to and I laughed at one point and said to him see why I need this?! My shoulders were quivering a little and when he said I had to do a plank I almost died!
Then some ab work and we were done. I ended up getting to work almost an hour earlier that I usually do (which was really only about 30 minutes earlier thatn I am supposed to get here!).
I could almost get used to this routine but not sure I want to.
So we'll finish up with afterwork and Saturday sessions and I'll re-evaluate.
I keep thinking about that Spartan race and how far I have to go before I'll feel like I'm ready for it, but I guess that's how I felt when I first decided to start running and wanted to run a half marathon!
