Out of shape? Day 1 of 30.

Wow I feel so out of shape!

Please someone explain to me how I can run 7 miles and enjoy every minute of it, keep my breathing stable and feel like I could have even done more but one 20-min video completely kicks my butt?!?

I just completed day one of the Jillian 30 day shred. Its a 20 min video. 3 minutes strength, 2 min cardio, 1 min abs x3. My heart was pounding, I actually sweated a ton, and now that Im done my arms and legs feel like jello. Seriously! When I lift my arms up they shake.

I tried this video once before and only once. I was so incredibly sore the next day. Curious if that is going to happen again - we will see tomarrow I guess. But regardless how I feel, I have decided that I need to give this video 30 days - kind of like an ease into P90X since it scares the crap out of me!

SO I will be adding 30 day shred daily to my regular workout regimine. Its only 20 min - I can do 20 min! Im tough... :)

The other thing I have decided is that I really really really want to add swimming into my workout mix but since I dont really know how to swim competitively then I really need to work on that... so I have a week off in Sept and I have decided to take some swim classes... so excited, nevous for looking like an adult idiot but still so excited!

So my workout agenda this week -

Today (monday) - 30 day shred, something else but dont know what yet
tues - early morning 3-4 mile run, video
wed - super early spin class, video
Thur- 8 mile run, video
Fri - spin class, video
Sat - video

busy busy! Eating is doing well - no plans for any outings to ruin things... I dont do well out.

    Kristen - pretty crappy to leave a nasty message then after you knew I read it remove it... I wasnt trying to be negative to you, just telling you my thoughts on drastically cutting your calories when you have a history of binging. If you dont want comments on your blog then take away the comments option or better yet just keep a diary.
