I have been walking to Leslie Sansone dvds for at least two months. I was getting so comfortable with them that I could easily put in a 10 mile a day. When that was getting easy I added ankle weights. Needless to say I kept challenging my self with her videos; mixing them up, add weight, do a few now and a few later etc.
For the first time I used her Walk your Way Thin "Walk it Off and Tone it Up" today. It is a 5 mile with strechies. I had on my ankle weights and hand weights because I have done other 5 miles of her and really didn't challenge myself. After the first mile with this new video I had to take off the hand weights. By the 2.5 mile I was ready to quit!! I was tired, my muscles in my thighs were straining. I kept going because it slowed down a bit using the stretching bands, two even. But then we picked it up again and by mile 4 once again I was ready to drop. Of course knowing I had one more mile to go I kept it up and finished the whole 5 miles. All I can say now is Wow! That was an awesome work out for me. I hope it stays that challenging. I think I will do it only once a week to make sure.
