If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
I first started ChaLEAN Extreme about 2 years ago & absolutely loved it! I was losing weight and inches and really changing my shape. Unfortunately, I was sidelined by a mysterious illness that sapped my energy and made me physically ill when I exercised. After about 1 1/2 months of good progress I literally couldn't make it through 5 minutes of a session. Prior to that, I had only the usual trouble associated with tough workouts. It was very frustrating and scary.
I've been gradually regaining strength and endurance over the last couple years, although setbacks happen with little or no warning. I have learned to listen to my body more closely and take it easy when I need to rather than suck it up and push through it. My doctor has told me to do whatever I feel I can handle, so I'm ready to try CE again.
I plan to start out with wimpy weights and gradually work my way up. I may not be able to push it as hard as I'd like, but something's better than nothing. Wish me luck!
