Day 4. It’s 5:40 pm and I am legitimately tired. My feet are throbbing, my legs hurt and I am seriously thinking of going to bed right now. The 75 Hard Challenge is starting to show its teeth.
The day started out fine, but the two 45 workout sessions really got to me today. After not having worked out for this amount of time for quite a while (to be honest… at least two years), I am feeling muscles ache where I had forgotten there were muscles.
But it’s all part of the 75 Hard process – that I know for sure. Once this 75 Hard Challenge is done, I will be stronger – in mind and body. That is definitely a result to keep looking forward to.
My second workout today was a conditioning workout that included:
4 minutes of dynamic warmup (Skipping jumps, Jumping Jacks, Assisted Squats, Hip raises, Shoulder bridges, and Windmills)
- 1 min Negative Pushups
- 8 minutes of Interval training to work the core, Glutes and Upper Body (pushups, plank leg-lifts and standing scales)
- 25 Plank Knee to chests
- 5 rounds of
- 25/20/15/10/5 Mountain Climbers
- 25/20/15/10/5 Sit ups
- 25/20/15/10/5 Squats
- Stretching to cooldown
Since my body was so worn out from the workouts over the past 4 days, I am planning on changing my exercise for tomorrow. I just might go for a 45 min bike ride.
Here were my meals today:
Breakfast – Green Smoothie, made of celery, cucumber, ginger, corriander
Mid morning – Apple
Lunch – Stewed eggplant wrap (wrapped in a collard leaf)
Mid afternoon – Handful of walnuts
Dinner – Cauliflower Rice with roasted sweet potatoes
