Okay, sorry for the lack of post yesterday but after back to back Boot Camp and Zumba, I only had enough strength to update my status .
It did get through Boot Camp but it was awful . The instructor was great in that he kept encouraging us to go at our own pace but I get embarrassed when I don't keep up. I pushed myself so hard that by midway, I don't know how to explain it, I felt afraid, almost panicked.
Afterward, I decided that a workout that hard could only serve to raise my cortisol levels and thus negate the desired progress. Besides, the muscle fatigue it caused made me useless for the subsequent Zumba class which dampened the fun for sure.
This morning I did Kelly Coffey Meyer 30 Mins to Fitness Boot Camp and it was way more fun. Anyway, this evening I took back to back Body Blast (sculpting) and Zumba and at the end, the girl that was in the Boot Camp class begged me to come back tomorrow morning. I explained that it was so far above my fitness level that it scared me and she again reiterated what the instructor told me. "Go at you own pace".
I told her I would come back but I'm going to modify so much that it's going to look like I'm taking another class. LOL. If the instructor really doesn't mind then I'm going to give it another chance. I NEVER push myself that hard and if I really want to get to the next level its just what I need.
SO tomorrow morning, glutton for punishment that I am, I will be going back to the 5:15AM Boot Camp class . Wow, do I swing for the fence or what
