#HIIT #tabata and #yoga

I got a sickie workout in! No voice still but at least I’m feeling more human, even if I still have coughing fits so violent I feel like I’m going to barf on myself.

Did the whole thing along w/ the video because I didn’t feel like previewing. Also it was all time based, which was absolutely perfect for the “cause” of just getting a workout in and loosening up my sick-sore joints. It was just important to move my body because four straight days of just lying around and I had a really sore lower back. I cracked it in the mid left thoracic though during one of the breaks. It never used to crack there before “Miami 2012”, but such is life.

And wouldn’t you know it’s a night I could actually maybe leave the house, but it’s jam night, which is way too loud. For one thing.


Got a decent burn too. I really think this is about the level that my old 3rd series was, although I never started wearing a monitor until I was out of the studios and past the days of tick tocks and chakra bandhasana.
