Insanity Day 13 – Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs

Rough day.

First time doing both Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs, and unfortunately it was one of my worst energy days from the moment I started. 10 seconds into Pure Cardio my legs felt like my sneakers were lined with lead, and it never got any better. I pushed through both workouts, one directly after the other. I had to leave early to make a doctors appointment (routine), and so skipped the cool down for Pure Cardio and the warm up for Cardio Abs to save a few minutes. Don’t think it made a difference. Felt better for having pushed through a workout with low energy, but still felt weak. Never got better all day, and even felt stiffness in my knee, which had seemed to go away, and my back stiffened up. Nothing terrible, just a lot of little annoyances. This was so contrary to my experience so far where every day I attacked the workouts with more energy and left them feeling better and less tired.

One positive — at my medical appointment my BP was lower than it’s been in years.

Feel better today (except back is still stiff), and happy to have the scheduled day off. Also woke up today weighing 2 lbs more than yesterday without being able to determine why (ie no major spike in salt or carb intake). Hope to attack the fit test tomorrow feeling refreshed. Will post results and measurements.

Disclosure: I am a Beachbody Coach. I became a coach because I love the programs and the Shakeology product. I figured since I’m blogging my own experience anyway, and if helps someone decide to try to make the same change for the better, then I might as well earn a commission. The Beachbody links in this post and in the rest of the site will take you to the Beachbody store, where I will get credit for the sale at no extra cost to you. In fact, by buying from me instead of direct from Beachbody without a coach’s portal, you usually get a bonus DVD. If you purchase a Beachbody program, chances are someone is getting a commission. If you valued this post or the other information and articles I created, I would very much appreciate you buying the program through me! Also, any Amazon links you see also generate commissions, again at no cost to you. Thanks for any purchases you make.
