I made it! Week 6 complete, workouts #5 and #6 defeated! I can honestly say these two workouts have been the most challenging yet. I can’t imagine how much more intense #7 and #8 are going to be. I will keep you posted. All in all I give Body Revolution a two thumbs up. Jillian Michales is no joke and neither is Body Revolution. Measurements are on track and I lost about another 1/2 lb. (for those who are new, I am not in this program for serious weight loss but for cross training and overall strengthening)
The thing I love most is 30 minutes and done! Jillian says she doesn’t have time or even like to workout for an hour. Amen sister. But in that half hour she will kick your butt, you will sweat like a pig and you WILL get stronger. The only way you wouldn’t is if you just totally gave up. The “supersets” are intense but I just keep telling my self working multiple muscles saves time and just gets it over with quicker. Love that. With three kids on summer vacation and a deployed hubby, it’s a win-win.
I have also continued with this weeks training schedule for the RnR (Rock and Roll) half marathon in September. So far I have still been able to co-ordinate both the JM and half training together. I am feeling stronger and more confident during my runs. The biggest obstacle this week has been the extreme heat and humidity here. See my last post for the gory details here “Suck it up Buttercup….” Temps have been lows hovering just under 80 (which wouldn’t be too bad) if it weren’t for the HIGH humidity, even at 6 in the morning. Grrrr. Running in the evening hasnt’ been an option either. Lows before sunset have been in the 90’s. So I did sweat, a lot this week. And one day I even broke down and did my run at the gym on the “dreadmill”. Tomorrow I am supposed to do 8, looks like that might also be a treadmill run because highs are expected to be 100 (110 heat index) oh and humid, can’t forget humid now can we, of course not.
Hoping for a break in the heat by sometime next week. Forecasted highs only in the 80’s at some point. Wahoo, party time! Between now and then I think we are going to get slammed by one heck of a thunderstorm to get all this poop out of here for a while.
Have a great week! Run Find your Happy Pace.
