Week 2 in Review

I am starting off this week a bit sore already. Friday‘s Hiit was a killer, and I still haven’t fully recovered from that. Onward I trudge though, trying to keep in mind that this is good for me! I especially love the hour and a half or so that I get without children…After 3.5 years of being around these children 24/7 it is an interesting break and leave me ready to conquer the rest of the crazy day with them!

 

Monday Hiit wasn’t too difficult. It worked out most of the tightness that had built up in my muscles over the weekend but didn’t kill me.

 

Step-2-it on Tuesday left me sweating through my clothes which is a really big deal for me because it takes a lot to make me sweat! Wasn’t a lot of work on my muscles or really my lungs. Just kept me moving which is a plus.

 

I had my first experience with weight lifting on Wednesday. I used some pretty heavy weights (8-10 lbs depending in which muscle group we were working), and low number of reps which I am definitely not used to. Some of the moves were really hard to do, but there wasn’t the familiar burning sensation. I enjoyed the experience and definitely felt it the next day!

 

We slept in on Thursday and I was sad to miss kick boxing.

 

Fridays hiit was sort of low key. Not sure if that means I’m getting used to it, or maybe the instructor kept it simpler.

 

The perpetual soreness that has been lingering since I started is lessening a little more each day. I don’t think that my flexibility is increasing any but I’m definitely getting stronger!
