I’m just back home after my 7th High Intensity Slow Training session. Whew!
Even though my muscles were only under load for about eight minutes, I’m feeling drained, altered and a bit “wobbly” after my session tonight. My friend Mark was encouraging me to really give it my all, and I feel like I did!
My goal was to give my body a stimulus to grow stronger, and I think I accomplished that! Ugh! Even sitting here at my desk feels like a lot of effort right now. (Maybe the giant sausage and eggs breakfast 90 minutes before the workout contributed to this feeling I have?)
My numbers for weight and time have improved significantly but I feel like I may be plateaued somewhat with the one week rest interval and wonder if I should try increasing my rest interval to ten days or even two weeks – I want to give my body the time and rest it needs to make the adaptation!
