Ha! I conquered my fears and tackled Level 2 of the 30 day Shred! Actually that was 2 days ago and now I am going to do it again this morning but I thought I better post just in case my internet conks out :-)
It went pretty well - was hard but not as bad as I though it would be. I did modify some of the moves so I think I will try to do this level at least a few times until I am familiar with the routine. It is always hard the first time because you are trying to figure out what they are doing and it is easy to get behind. With the v-raise and squat, I didn't even hold any weights in my hands and my arms were still burning by the end! Yikes! And then by the 3rd circuit I was so tired of the plank position that i just did butt kicks for that part of the cardio, and did bicycle crunches instead of whatever insane move they were doing for the abs! Ha ha!
But boy, I was sore yesterday! Just exercising a new set of muscles really reminds you of how many muscles God put in our body! I think it's great to mix it up a little every once in a while because it would be pretty much impossible to exercise all the muscles all the time!
Anyway, I conquered my fears! Now I just have to get back to it this morning!
