“No Rest Is Worth Anything Except the Rest That Is Earned” (Day 18: Cardio Recovery)

cardio recoveryDay 18 was Thursday which means it was Cardio Recovery, the only workout during Month 1 that falls on the same day each week. This was the first time, however, that it came after Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs, so the rest felt earned. I started off the workout sore, which subsided, but I didn’t feel well throughout so it was nice to know there wasn’t any jumping around coming, and that it would be over in about 30 minutes.

Once again, I did the slow squats but my knees starting to hurt during the hold, so I stopped doing that while Shaun T talked. I also did the slow lunges but skipped the hold and pulses due to my husband’s recommendation to skip them. I feel bad skipping what amounts to about three exercises but I’m trying to get fit, not get hurt so I had to adjust. Overall, I got a good workout despite it being a break from Cardio, and exercise and all the deep breathing helped me feel better by the end.
