#oneperfectset Plus I’m unusually tired

This week’s challenge: #oneperfectset, I almost fear I wouldn’t get it since the workouts are intense and tiring, and so far this week I’m having to do them after 13 hour work days at 9:00 at night and before eating dinner.

Probably not the “right” answer, but for me the perfect set was my mid cycle jump rope sesssion on Monday. One of those where you aren’t tripping at all, a great song comes on, and my speed and intensity pick up like a well oiled engine. I get lost in deep thoughts and don’t even realize the 4 minute clock stopped as I just kept in the zone and jumping as it was “perfect” mode.

Lastly, I’m quite tired on this particular program. Keznai usually gives me sustainable energy, but I’m finding the 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. area has left me wanting to nap and having bad attention span. Not sure why?

It’s strange how that happens. I remember it hitting me in KB2 also. I know your work schedule is daunting so it’s hard to fit everything in. Maybe you need to start parking on a hidden level of the parking garage and go take a 15 minute nap in the car. 😆

    Way to go on keeping up with the program after 13 hour days! And given how tough skipping is for me, 4 minutes without realizing is absolutely splendid! Go Gary!

      Training your ass off and clocking 13 hour days? I can't imagine why you'd be tired! Hahahaha. Add the fact that your body is mobilizing energy for some serious tissue repair and it makes some sense that the sleepies could strike.

      So while being tired...isn't a performance enhancing drug...it is a sign you are training right. My advice, take some time to build in a ten minute break during those low energy periods. Take a walk. Grab a cup of coffee or mint tea. Do some range of motion movements through the joints. This should boost your endorphins and clear your head, Gary!

        13 hour days is very intense...and you are still training and keeping the diet, very well done!

        As Ward said, your body is probably repairing and building muscle which all requires extra energy so you get tired.

        Finish the rest of the program strong, you are really doing well!
