PHASE 3: 30-Day Advance HIIT Challenge – Day 1

Submitted by on June 1, 2015 – 11:45 am No Comment

Narrative: (Duration – 81:00 mins) →  My Nike Link
Well, today was the dramatic kickoff off Phase 3 (My 3rd fitness challenge for the 2015) and it was really a badass; and no, not of the good variety.  I think I might have overestimated my fitness level in taking on this challenge after sitting out nearly a month.  The intensity in  HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (HIIT) was definitely felt.  At any rate, I will be back to it again tomorrow so no sense lamenting.   Specifics: Did my HIIT movements as indicated below, but if I am being honest, today was a near estimate.  I had to take longer breaks and shortened the time from 30secs to 15sec on some of the exercises.  After HIIT movements I did 30 mins on the elliptical.  I was pretty much spent, but pushed through it.  I know things will get better, but today was not fun for sure.  I do have enough music to push me, but my typical RockMyRun hype music just wasn’t doing it today; I suppose I was too busy getting my butt kick, my ears were even feeling the pain.   It’s all good tho,  I have tomorrow to hit back.  That’s it for today 29 more to go.  Good livin’…lean forward and keep on movin‘.
