30-Day Challenge: Day #3

30-Day Challenge (Day3)

I’m hurting.

When I woke up this morning, I felt it. My muscles were sore. But I was loving it because that meant I worked my body hard enough yesterday (and I suppose from the day before too). And no, I didn’t do crazy push-ups before work today. See? I’m a fast learner.

So I’ve ditched my high heels for a while now and have been sporting my little kitten heels at work. When I was training for my half, I felt a little pain creeping up on my legs and wearing my high heels just agitated it a bit more. But since I was crazy yesterday (and because the shoes went with the outfit, gosh) I decided to wear them again. Big mistake. My legs were feeling extra wobbly today and I feel that part of the reason was due to my shoe choice yesterday. Sigh, I guess I can’t be too aggressive and just let my body rest a bit more. Maybe next week, when my legs are a tad stronger, I can wear them again.

So Day 3. I have to admit it was really tough to get through it. My muscles were sort from 2 consecutive days of crazy workouts (and my shoe choice), that getting an extra rep in those rounds were really difficult. I’m happy I managed to finish the workout, but not without cursing at Lisa through my small iPad screen. “Do another rep! Stop slacking! Are you jumping?!?” she says. Geez Lisa, what do you think? I hope you don’t think that I’m just laying on the couch and watching you hop around the screen and throwing your weights around. Of course I’m pushing myself. Of course I’m jumping. Of course I’m cursing at you and your crazy workouts. But I made it. I made it through the end, and boy, was I glad to hear that freaking beep beep beep.

I’ve taken Lisa’s workout directly from her BodyRock website with some of my modifications.
