Really not worth the extra pain.
Saturday, January 16, 2010
I just got through reading LASHERTHECAT's daily blog and I must concur with her - the BootCamp is just not worth the extra pain in my legs.
I found that my leg pains were getting much worse after almost 2 weeks of BootCamp. I missed Thurs and Friday due to my dad having complications and today because I know Saturday's workout is just too painful for me. Today I did notice that just missing a couple of days has lessened the pain in my legs; I do still have stiffness but that is normal.
I applaud Coach_Nicole for her flexibility but until *something* gives, I cannot even sit back on my feet (kneeling on floor) - my butt just will not touch my feet! So something has been hurt and it will take time to loosen it up again.
I do understand the need for harder videos for those in better shape than me - but it would be nice if they had simple videos for us beginners in addition to the harder ones for those more toned and in condition. Alas, I will just go back to the Strength Training I had been using rather successfully and I will continue using my Stability Ball and the videos I am able to do.
**edit: The flip-side to this is my internet is back down to 70% today! It would seem that the videos are quite a bit larger than I would have thought - so by not doing the boot-camp videos, I am also saving my internet connection!
I mentioned U-Tube to my sister who is also on satellite internet and she told me the downloads are a lot bigger than anyone would think. Hmmm.
I believe I am going to stick with my DVDs - I do have one for the balance ball and I think all the exercises in the bootcamp are also listed individually in the ST exercises. So all I need is a written run-down of what to do!
Someone was blogging this - if anyone reading my blog knows who it is, please comment and share the persons ID.
**edited: I just received a reply to my request and days 2-7 are posted at the BootCamp forum here:
Day One is done with a 'mark' on the floor and you spend the time hopping & jumping over the line in various ways.
I was unable to do that amount of hopping & jumping though.
