Today I challenged myself to complete 2 HIIT intervals of jump rope with a 2-minute rest in between.
I definitely felt like falling over once I was finished, but it was great!
My goal within the next 3-4 weeks is to work up to completing 5 HIIT Jump Rope intervals, with 2-minute rests in between, every other day.
Monster endurance and a major calorie burn is what I’m after!
I was sure to stretch after completing the intervals, hoping to reduce the pain I was experiencing in my right ankle.
It helped but the ankle was still a little stiff afterwards 😦
Tomorrow I’ll do a brisk walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes with no incline to get in my “steady state” cardio. Just in case you’re wondering, I don’t use any incline because I have no desire to bulk up my calves. I already have large calves and any incline on a treadmill will bulk them further.
Oh yeah, I started making my salads in a jar and breakfasts in a jar.
They are super easy and convenient. They also really help keep me on track calorie wise.
Signing off until tomorrow.
