Yesterday I did my first High Intensity Interval Training(HIIT) ever. I was doing 15 seconds work with 60secs active rest, and I did 12 rounds of that. It was only 30 minutes when I added my jogging as a warm-up or it, but maaaaan. My calves feel like blocks of wood. I decided to do kettlebell swings as my work, and jogging as my rest. Eventually I switched to just walking quickly as I was not getting actual rest. My kettlebell is 36lbs, and I wore my vibrams to workout. I know this is disjointed, but I wanted to make sure I got SOMETHING written about it.

Honestly the workout itself wasn’t hard. I think tomorrows workout, which I will be doing sore, will be harder to stick with and finish. It is upper body stuff, a mix of kettlebell rows and push-ups. I don’t think it is a good idea to run on this calves until they soften up a little bit, so Sprints will wait till thursday.

Wish me luck!
