So, what was good about today’s Plyo? Well, I pressed play, and I made it to the end, still moving.
What was bad about today’s Plyo? Everything else, pretty much.
I’ve had a bit of a sniffle and sore throat all day, not sure if I’m coming down with something. More likely I’m just unfit or having an off day. For whatever reason, today was a killer. I started strong, but then my heartrate kept zooming up, and I couldn’t cool down enough. When I paused, my heartrate dropped back down quickly, but then when I started moving – zoom! Back up.
So it was a very stop-and-start practice after about midway. I was seriously tempted to turn it off at 30 mins and just decide I was too ill. I was really, really tempted again at 40 mins when it was getting no better. But I am proud of myself for sticking with it to the end and doing as much as I could. I think that’s all I can really be proud of today.
So: tomorrow is Shoulders and Arms – I like that one. And Ab Ripper (fingers crossed). During the day tomorrow, I’m going to the Olympics with my son to see BMX. So worst case, if I end up carrying him for hours and being too tired to exercise in the evening, at least it’ll still have been an arm workout day.
Right, off to bed now, to collapse in a small sniffly heap and have (hopefully) nice dreams.
