Training Day: 62
Time: 35 – Les Mills Training Cardio #01
Strength Training: Legs
How It Felt: The cardio workout kicked my ass and felt great (see commentary)! Just like all my other workouts, this week, same leg workout as last week, so boring!
Commentary: Holy smokes! I thought my heart might explode in the beginning of that cardio workout. It’s like I forgot how to breathe! When I run I breathe to my cadence. But during a workout video I find it hard to get a good rhythm for my breath and end up winded. Halfway through the workout I had to pause to hit my inhaler.
That being said, this workout was waaaaay better than my Tuesday workout. And this was just a training workout to get you ready for the Grit program! I’m so not ready, lol. I had to modify some the exercises to keep going, and at a few points I simply had to take a quick break before I could get going again.
In case you didn’t notice, I’m impressed and excited with my new workout. I finally feel like I have something to challenge me and get my cardio in. And I have a goal – do an entire Grit workout without extra breaks or modifications to make it easier.
You know what else kicked my ass? My first COVID vaccine! About an hour after getting the shot I felt nauseous and had a headache. When it didn’t pass I took a few ibuprofen and made some hot tea. It didn’t get me back to 100%, but I felt well enough to do my leg workout after work.
Endlessly seeking adventure.
