Day 3: Cardio Recovery
Today I thought I wouldn’t sweat much.
Ho ho ho. I think I sweated the same amount as when doing full cardio, if not more?? The 33 minutes workout was full of deep repeated stretches, pushing your body and making yourself more flexible. This has been my favourite from the others so far as I really felt I had time to get my form correct before he went on to do something else. I also felt I was still working really hard, I mean I had sweat dripping from my face, and I was extremely hot by the end – just like the cardio workouts.
I found the squat holds hard, Shaun T telling me to breathe every few seconds- I mean I was panting, does that count as breathing? I found I was able to place my palms completely on the floor during the ham string stretch, which is something I haven’t been able to do for a while, so just by Day 4 (including the Fitness Test in here) my body is now slightly more flexible – which is amazing!!
It was definitely nice to have a break from cardio, and I still felt like it was worth it- I mean I know I mention it every time but I was sweating buckets.
Tomorrow is ‘Pure Cardio’ which sounds….. energetic, sweaty and like I’ll be pushing myself further than I have these last three days – so I thank the lord for the day like this each week!
