Remember how I said Jillian's 30 Day Shred was kind of disappointing? It wasn't that hard?
Well I was not lying. I was able to get through the workout just fine.
But shortly after that I could tell something was not right.
Much like Liz, who commented about the shin splints after doing the level 2 workout without shoes, I also did the routine without shoes. As soon as Jillian and her crew came out in shoes I thought "uh oh"... but then thought "whatever it's only 20 minutes."
I'm not sure if it was the "butt kicks" (but I think it was) but my hamstrings started seizing up yesterday afternoon.
The workout is really devoid of any real stretching so I popped down on my trap table and tried to stretch those babies out.
I even did a full treadmill workout to try and loosen them back up and stretched again.
Sometime in the night I needed to go to the bathroom. When I got up and tried to take a step I almost fell over.
This morning I can barely walk. I have to walk around with my knees bent in a kind of squat.
So I'm debating whether I should work through the pain and do the routine again (this time with shoes and stretching immediately after) or if I should take today off. I can actually do all the moves without pain... it's just walking that seems to be a problem... so for sure grocery shopping is out.
