Day 1 - Fit Test:
It was as hard as I expected it to be, what I didn't expect was to be as sore as I was the day after. I did the fit test on Sunday and was really feeling it come Monday morning. I didn't mind though, I love a good soreness. Makes me feel like there's actually work being done! I also didn't expect to see such large numbers. I plan to post my results here, but I forgot them at home, and I'm at work. Not all the numbers were great, but I have to say I impressed myself, maybe I'm not that bad off after all? Haha, who am I kidding.
I went into day 2 scared, seriously. If the fit test was crazy, I can only imagine what the actual work out is like. I'd done a lot of research on the program so I had an idea of what was coming. Did not prepare me. At. All. Ok maybe a little bit, in the fact that I knew it was ok to stop, rest, pause, breathe, if I needed it... and I totally did. I didn't feel bad taking an extra minute or two break during the "water breaks" because I felt that with the extra break it gave me enough recovery time to power through the next section. I'm not saying it was easy. It wasn't. I thought I was going to die. But it felt good to pour sweat, to feel my muscles burn, and it even felt good to scream at Shaun T. "You're F***ing CRAZY!!!!" I can definitely feel it today. I knew when I was sore LAST NIGHT from the work out only hours before that today was going to be rough. When I got out of bed the morning I felt like I was waddling. Good times!
