Day 5/60: No "Bad Pain" Allowed

Workout: Pure Cardio (38 min.)

As quick insight, at least two moves on this workout include the word "suicide" in their name.  Yeah, yikes.  

We're talkin' constant moving, jumping, kicking, punching, push-up hell.    Even the super-fit people on the video were splattered on the floor by the end.

That said, I never feel badly taking an extra break as needed or modifying a move.  My goal is to rock it through the whole 60-days and not hurt myself.   

I follow what I believe is good advice for any workout:  If I feel like my heart rate is too high, or I feel my knee or back start to "tweak," I take a break or modify the move.  I constantly monitor my body and adjust as I think I need to.    

Most people can tell the difference between "good pain" and "bad pain."  Just gotta listen and remember that there is no shame in pacing yourself.

Have an insane day!
