Wow! Now, I never claimed to be Captain Fitness, but I never expected to be so worn out from an hour of walking! Actually it was 46 minutes of walking and 14 minutes of stretching. We did Leslie Sansone’s Walk Slim – 4 Fast Miles DVD! Since I haven’t done much exercise in the last few months, it was pretty intense! About halfway through I was pretty much out of breath and wanted to pass out quit.
We’ve done this and other Leslie Sansone walking DVDs in the past, but this one is different then some of the others. In fact, if your usual workout routine is nothing more than lifting a remote or folding a slice of pizza, then you might want to start with one of her “lighter” programs. On this DVD, Leslie does interval training – switching between sections of really fast walking and jogging (or “boosted walking” as she likes to call it).
Well, after the 46 minutes of torture – actually it was kind of fun because my wife did it with me – we then did the 14 minute stretch from Debbie Siebers’ Slim in 6. This is the most comprehensive stretching routine that I have ever seen, because she covers every major muscle in the body!
So after that bit of fun, we then decided to dig my car out of the snow. It was pretty bad because we were plowed in, and the two people who were parked on either side of my car, decided to dump their shoveled snow directly in front of my car. So we had to borrow our neighbor’s shovel and dig through 4 feet of plowed snow in order to get to my car. Of course, since they didn’t do a good job of cleaning up after the last snow storm, there was “week old” ice in the parking spot!
Then we went on to my wife’s car to repeat the procedure. Unfortunately, there was so much ice, that we couldn’t get it out of the space. In case you are wondering why we didn’t just call the super and ask him to put down some salt around the tires, it is because they ran out!!!
So, you can imagine how tired I am right now. It looks like the workout won this round, but I’ll be back…hopefully, tomorrow!
