"The Shred" has done it.
I just thought I was breaking up with Jillian but in the end she broke me. So I give. I made it through Level 1 & 2. I can not do Level 3. The jump training, the boob flopping, the lifting of something and then something else alternating into oh my gah it hurts!
What hurts, you may wonder? Not my muscles. They have the usual soreness of being worked and stretched but that I can handle. Nope its the bones. Specifically my shins. In addition to "The Shred" I was still walking my three miles, three days a week and on a day I walked and shredded... holy snikes Batman! The pain! Oh the pain!
So I'm taking a break from anything high impact. Still going to walk it out three days a week and do some strength training but it will be low impact. We're talking static lunges, push-ups, crunches, etc. No jumping or flopping involved. And most certainly no double jump rope.
I am kind of ashamed because I really wanted to finish the program and be able to say I finished it. But I know when I'm beat and when I need to change it up. I'm out of shape and although I'm doing my very best to change that, sometimes a girl just needs to put her feet up.
