But yeah, there is literally no way to go but up from here.
I'm still struggling a little with a shoulder tweak. planning on starting all over again Monday. I will absolutely be pausing the dvd to get more than 30 seconds of rest. I can't recover in that short amount of time, Shawn T says it's important to recover, so this go round I will be recovering. I figure I'll stretch 30 seconds to 45 maybe 60 if needed. my heart rate needs to come down, Shawn T says so, when I'm OVER my max and sit down for a measly 30 seconds....my heart rate is still crazy high. also....I really need to NOT get my heart rate over my max, which means the first month I was actually pushing myself too hard! right? just had a physical and asked my doc about this and he completely agrees that going over your max heart rate is worthless and does nothing to help your fitness. so this is how I'm going to approach it this time. BUT....I cannot decide what to do about the damn fit test.....to pause....or not to pause....that damn thing almost kills me every time.
