Day 52 and I’m still really sore. I am having a really hard time working out lately. Not in the form of pushing play but more in the form of being about to up the intensity and get a good workout done. This is the 3rd day in this transition week and I still feel waisted. Today we did the Accelerator workout which is the first cardio workout of the week. I spent a lot of time taking breaks (at least it felt that way). I woke up today sore all over and with a headache. Maybe my body is trying to tell me something or I’m just wimping out.
Day 52 Accelerator
The accelerator workout is a great workout where we do a move for 60 seconds changing the speeds of that move. I’m still having issues with my legs being sore thus any kind of squat/jump move gets my heart rate up quick causing me to be worn out much faster. I hope this is just a phase and by the end of the week I can get back into the workouts like I want to. I skipped a couple moves today, partly out of exhaustion, one of them was the “moving circle”. This is where we are a plank and we spin in a circle in different directions. I just don’t have enough space to do the spin, so I skipped it and used it for a break. The other move I ended up skipping was the “Donkey Kicks”. It’s the last move in the accelerator workout. The move before is a squat move which I went pretty hard at and by the time we finished I ended up on the floor with no energy to even attempt a Donkey kick.
