I had a long day at work and pretty much only ate lunch (meant to make breakfast when I got to work but you know how it gets) so by the time the afternoon rolled around, I was ready to call it a day but NOOOOOO... had to go to the gym still.
Started out with a nice 20 minute brisk walk on the treadmill as my warm up, then headed to see my PT.
60 minutes of full body conditioning + plyo + not enough energy = hitting the wall harrd
This is the first time I really experience what you Beachbody veterans call boinking (or is it bonking - I can't remember). About halfway through my workout, right in the middle of my vertical jumps/skaters/plyo lunge sequence, I hit it.... the wall. It's like someone literally flipped a switch and I was out! I just coudln't move my body how I wanted to and there went my form and execution on all my exercises. Even my PT asked what' s up. After taking it down a notch, the 60 minutes were up BUT the boyfriend picked up a shift yesterday so I had to walk home from the gym. It's a short walk, about 30 minutes, but I was just so drained I seriously didn't think I could. Luckily it was raining a little bit so that kept me "refreshed".
Never again will I attempt a serious workout with not enough fuel in me.
But on the plus side, I've been back at nutrition and exercise for the last several days and we all know that for me, that's amazing!! Keep it up! KEEP IT UP!!!
