I worked my tail off trying to squeeze everything in and make up the two days of Turbo and three of CLX that I was behind, but without burning out. After 9 straight days of program videos, I needed a rest and took Friday off. I felt so, so good Saturday, and, refreshed, had great workouts both yesterday and today.
I am making the mental adjustment to being OK with not always rocketing through the ceiling during the plyo intervals, or even when Chalene adds a little jump somewhere in the middle of a sequence. (The bazillion squats and lunges in CLX make it difficult to do this as...-enthusiastically- as when I have only done TF in the past.) Learning how to dial it back is a challenge for me, but I think it will ultimately be a very good thing to master, since doing something "right" doesn't have to just mean pushing your body to its furthest limits -- it can and should also apply to ensuring your long-term physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and safety.
Maybe I am growing, lol.
