Insanity Day 30: Buuuurn!

It was probably the wrong time to pick up the kettlebell set.  I haven't had a chance to really bond with my set since my arms feel like spaghetti noodles after my "recovery" week workout! *LOL*

Gonna keep this one short today since I'm feeling pretty wiped.

Went out for our almost 5k walk at lunch and forgot my HRM again! DOH!

Ah well, I peeked at the exercises and did a best guess at how fast we were going and it ranged from higher 200s to 300s.  So it's good to have an idea of what I burned.  The squats from last night really made themselves known during the walk though.  I was TOTALLY feeling my butt, quads and the backs of my thighs and my ARMS!

With the FuelBand, I usually do some jogging in place while pumping my arms and I couldn't do much today since my arms and shoulders were sore!

Felt them even more today but while I didn't burn as many calories as I did yesterday, I noticed that I got through a LOT farther without having to take a break!  I think the first time I didn't do an entire set was...oh the hip flexor workouts.  I got all the way up until I had to pulse the knee up.  Had to put my foot down and holy moly, it buuuuuuurns usssss!  Two points if you know where that one came from!

So for the next couple of days, I'll be working on trying to get farther and farther into the workout without stopping mid-set.  I did get a lot farther on the last set with the arm workout, but I had to stop during the up and down arms right before making the small forward circles.  Wow.

I love how a lot of these workouts are really just simple moves that you look at and think, 'what!? that looks so easy!' except when you get down to it, you realize that it works you pretty hard.  So I like it that it reminds me that sometimes it doesn't have to be all flash and show to be effective.

I'm also loving the walking plank.  Even though he said it's mainly working on the chest and shoulders, I love how I can totally feel it in my obliques - especially since sometimes I have moments where we're doing oblique work and I don't actually feel anything.  Walking plank?  I DEFINITELY do!

So there it is.  Day THIRTY.  It took me a LOT longer to get
