A few weeks ago I bought a new Tae Bo DVD - "Get Ripped Extreme", or something like that. It's heavy on the arm weights. The whole 2nd half is upper body and as hard as I want it to be, depending on the weights. Conversely, the old Tae Bo has a very challenging legwork section at the end. The new workout burns more calories and I think it's harder overall, though that could just be because it's new to me and I've been doing the old one for 14 years.
I hadn't done the old one since I got the new one. I've also done Insanity a few times since starting RFSC, and been pushing myself with other new workouts lately. Tonight I popped in the old Tae Bo though, and am feeling AMAZING to realize that it's gotten significantly less challenging even when giving it my all. AHHH!!! How cool is that?!?! Admittedly, the legwork at the end is still a bitch and a half, so I'll probably keep with it every now and then for that reason.
I have a job tomorrow morning that interferes in my new tennis routine. (Saturdays 9am). So my friend and I decided to play early enough to get our usual 2 hours, have time to shower and then get to my job. That means SIX A.M!!! Not only am I a night owl, NOT a morning person, but we're also having a freeze warning overnight and expect temps at or below 40 degrees F at 6am. I am so very very un-psyched about this, yet I haven't really considered cancelling. I think that's a very good sign!
Speaking of getting up early, I think I better get to sleep now.
