Did it again on Monday, except instead of the cardio intervals I did 5-10 min bursts on the treadmill at a pretty fast clip ... Tuesday I was almost crying with every step I took. I literally had to use my hands to lift my legs climbing out of bed. If I had to get up after sitting at my desk for a while I would nearly fall down. The worst was my quads - so sore, followed by my chest, abs..... Went for a 5 mile run with my husband Tuesday night and felt EVERY step along the way. It was horrid.
Have you ever had that feeling where your muscles FEEL like this - even if they don't LOOK like this:
They feel like they are SO pumped up and must be bursting at the seems, yet in the mirror they are still your regular ol' legs. That's how I felt on Tuesday.
But .. last night I did the workout again ... and today I feel
I made myself a chart of all the moves in the video.
It's also nice to follow the workout that way as I can take extra time if needed to complete my reps, or add on extra reps where I want them. I find in the video she doesn't do things equally and that drives me nuts - 15 reps on the left SHOULD equal 15 on the right and in the video it doesn't.
I color coded it so I can easily divide up the different sections (strength, cardio & core). That way if I want to sub out something (cardio for running) I just refer to the sections I need. I know, I'm a total geek!
Honestly I did NOT want to workout last night. We had another torrential downpour last night and that tends to leave me in a funk. I delayed working out until 9:15 PM. But I knew I couldn't go to bed without doing some activity towards my challenge. Having a goal/challenge really does help! I mean, I couldn't possibly renege on the 2nd day, could I??
