I thought I was fit...then I Bodyrocked :-s
As part of my total body conditioning goal to increase strength and more specifically core strength I visited the Bodyrock.tv Website that Christy @ My Dirt Road Anthem talks about all the time. It appears they are in the middle of a 30 day challenge so I flipped back to day 1 & did the fit test. It was sad. Not only is my lack of coordination starkly evident, but I was huffing and puffing worse than when I did a 1 mile sprint at the gym as part of a contest last year. I felt like a 300 pound elephant. Take my word for it, it was NOT pretty. 7 minutes had me panting. Seriously.
I previewed tomorrow. It is 12 minutes....I'm thinking of having 911 ready on speed dial before I start.
I'm convinced that if Bodyrock doesn't kill me it will indeed make me stronger in a compact, time conserving, very painful manner.
Oh, and I ran 5 miles after. 5 very slow miles. I think I overdid it yesterday. My right shin was painful the first 4 miles, then settled down. Not sure what's up with that but I'm watching it carefully.
