WiiActive Challenge

I'm down to only having 4 more days of the 30 Day Challenge on the Wii Active that the Sisterhood is currently working through. Last night (Workout Day 16) was by FAR the most difficult and challenging day I have done in the challenge. With the exception of maybe 5 of the 19 exercises, all of the exercises were INTENSE LEG EXERCISES! My knees and quads were absolutely killing me!! I moved up from the medium intensity to the HARD intensity a week and a half ago or so, and last night I was really wishing I HADN'T!!

Toward the end of this intense workout they had me RUN FOR SIX MINUTES! By this time my legs were feeling like they were not going to hold me up any longer and I just wanted to lie on the floor and cry, but I kept going....but I was not running the way they wanted me to. She kept telling me to "pick up the pace", "you can do better than that", and etc. I was actually SCREAMING at my TV. I rarely do that, but I was so sore and hurting THAT much! The next exercise was a 60 second SQUAT HOLD! Are you kidding me?? I tried to do it but could only go a few seconds at a time, so she kept yelling at me about that, too!

I'm still so sore today, that I can barely walk around the house! They told me that tonight's workout would be less intense and would work my upper body. If I find out they are lying to me I don't think I will be able to do the workout tonight!

So have you done the Day 16 workout? Did you feel like you were "going to die"???

You know what? I don't remember running for 6 minutes but the 2nd set of squat holds...I couldn't do it either! The most I could stay down was 2 or 3 seconds at a time, which meant it took FOREVER to get that one done!t
