I failed my workout today. I just couldn’t finish it.
Looks like Wednesdays are going to be my HIIT days from now on. Good to know and I’m really excited to have a regular schedule of this stuff. I felt totally prepared but then… tragedy.
I didn’t have my Clif Bar Builder’s Bar that I usually have 1.5-2 hours before my workout. It was a morning workout and I thought breakfast would be enough. Turns out I was wrong.
After my second set (of three) interval exercises, I felt like throwing up. I tried to rest and relax, I tried to drink water, I tried to walk it off. Nothing. I had to call it with 20 minutes remaining.
I was worried about disappointing Trainer Nick but he wasn’t upset. I just learned a valuable lesson: workouts are no good with just a cup of coffee in my system. I need to get real about my diet and my off-day workouts. October goal: set.
Here’s what I did accomplish, though:
- Lunge with a twist – 20 yards
- Slide-n-glide – 20 yards
- High knees/butt kicks – 20 yards
- Frankensteins/RDLs – 20 yards
- Karaoke – 20 yards
- Frog jumps – 10 yards
First interval sequence (x 3, no rests)
- Sled push (without the handles) – 20 yards
- 5 burpees
- 15 snowmen
Second interval sequence (x 3, 15 second break between sets)
- Battle ropes – 30 seconds (alternating, then both arms)
- Jump squats – 30 seconds
- Plank – 30 seconds
