Today, I am going to take it easy and enjoy the day… My legs are throughly worn out from all the cardio and my upper torso is sore from the building I have done there. Tomorrow, I plan to resume in full force and get back into things again. Plan to attack harder than yesterday, because I am starting to see the seeds of progress. Initially this week, I weighed in at 155 lbs. As of yesterday before workout, I was weighing in at 152 lbs! For 5 days of adding hard cardio, that is really astonishing! I can’t wait for the new week to begin. I just hope that with working weekends… It won’t screw with my routine.
I am proud of my great progress and hope to get even further. Until June… talk about killer suspense to see ultimate progress.
Workout notes: I woke to sore muscles all over and with exams having me running with “insomnia mode”, my body was not healing properly. So I ended up waking at 9:00 rather than the 6:45 I was hoping for. I feel much better though. The workout is short, but I do not intend to skimp on any cardio, because I do need it. I know my “redline” for my heart rate… At the moment I top out at 182 beats per minute and I can keep this state of redline for almost 40 minutes straight. Hopefully, I can get some sleep tonight and seriously get a great work-out tomorrow.
