What a week it has been! I finally hit the Wall!
Last weekend on the Saturday I played squash with a friend which was great fun after my Insanity pure cardio workout. Apparently I wanted as much cardio as I could pack in a day!
From Sunday onwards I was working till Thursday and I work hard at work! I’m always tired after work but I see that as I did a good job. Nuts I know but I like running around =) Before or after work everyday I was doing my insanity workout and/or my squat challenge.
Then came Thursday after work I came home to do my Insanity workout. My body just said no! I had no coordination in my feet and I was so physically exhausted I couldn’t get past the warm up! I decided I just had to rest up and have a cup of tea and a evening bowl of porridge. Even sitting up was such an effort and I was loving my bed. I think my exhaustion showed through my major sleep in the next morning when I didn’t even wake up till 10.30am!
Have you ever experienced this before? How did you recover from this?
I wasn’t sure if I was completely recovered on the Friday but I had an offer from a mate to try bouldering! How could I refuse! What great fun! It was a great break from constant cardio and my arms still ache from the 2 hour session but I regret none of it and would love to try it out again. I did over eat on junk food but i think i should treat myself occasionally especially how hard I have been working recently.
Today got back into my Insanity rhythm and still think my body is a tad weak. I hope I can recover well and keep going with Insanity. I am just over half way through the second week of Insanity and I do still love it! I like the challenge and can see results all over my body already. I guess I just have too remembering -
Hopefully the rest of week 2 of Insanity will go great and that my body learns to like me =)
See you guys soon!
