Like Jelly!

Last night at Cardiobox I felt as if my legs were like "jelly".........I am so tired today. Am I over doing it? Is this normal? I am working really hard at the gym at least 4 days a week (which is weird I used to go at least 6) but since I increased my cardio with 30/20/10 and Cardiobox I seem to be running on a lower steam. I am just worried I might be pushing myself to hard. I am seeing results (I go weigh on Monday fingers crossed I at least lost 2 lbs) and I feel great it is just doing the classes so close together it seems it wears me out faster. I am off today and maybe Friday - I just need rest!

When you feel like "jelly" what do you do?

When I am feeling tired or worn out I always give myself a break. You know how you body is feeling and how much you can push yourself. Take a break and if you feel better later and you want to take a class then go for it. Take care.

My legs have felt like jelly many many times! Like Dutch mentioned above, its good to take a break but its also good to push yourself.

Extra-ordinary results requires extra-ordinary effort. You are doing awesome!!!

I took a rest today. I have been trying 2 a days and I was just burned out. I am feeling better already and know I'll be ready to go back to the gym in the morning!! Good luck and glad I found your site.

I HELD ON TO THE FAT while my bod seemed to consume the muscle.
