I admit, I am having a tough time with the “no cardio” thing. And I just noticed that it’s 4 weeks without cardio, not 2 like I originally thought. I might have to start incorporating some short HIIT bursts in the morning to satisfy my runner’s itch. I mean, I’ve built up all this endurance over time and would hate to just give it up. I wish I knew the science behind this plan to allay some of my questioning. I just don’t feel like I’m doing enough by doing only the strength workouts alone. But if I’m going to do this, I want to do it all the way! And at least I have those Tough Mudder sessions to alleviate some of my need for cardio. And I do admit that it is kind of a nice break from my normal insane workout intensity. I am lifting heavy though, so the soreness does set in every day following a workout.
I’ve been going strong with this LiveFit program though, and I’ve been eating, for the most part, strictly on the plan. I’ve been doing the workouts completely, to failure too. After two full days of “rest,” I’m ready. Bring on Week Two!
