You got your good news, you got your bad news. And, by “you,” I’m really talking about me, because none of this affects you at all!
The good news is, this morning marked workout 10 of the 18 workouts in the 4 week Fitness Is Function Bodyweight program that I’m doing. The bad news is, the workouts are still boring as fuck, because it’s the same goddamned moves every day, and worse still, now they’re longer. The average time went up from 35 minutes to 45, and there’s one on the horizon that’s over 50 minutes. Plus, weeks 3 and 4 have 5 workouts per week, instead of the 4 workouts in weeks 1 and 2. Ugh.
Worser. I’m going out of town on Saturday, for work, and I won’t be back until late next Wednesday. So, I have to shuffle around the workouts I’m going to miss, while I’m away, which cuts out my scheduled rest day this Friday. I’m making up one of the workouts I’ll miss before I leave, and the other one I’m making up after I get back. Double ugh.
Based on how the workouts were programmed last week, I was expecting yesterday to be another push-up-filled nightmare. But, it was legs and core, with some conditioning. So, the dread shifted to today. But, today was kind of legs and core again, with some conditioning, again. The fuck? I guess that means tomorrow is going to suck super bad? Who knows?
I get irritated just thinking about the fact that I have to do workouts I hate for the next 3 days in a row. But, I am more responsible for my own misery than anyone else is, because I refuse to quit this program. Especially this close to the end. After this nightmare 5 day run from Tuesday to Saturday morning, I’ll only have 5 workouts left, and then I’ll never have to do these workouts again!
After that, I’ll probably move on to Zuzka Light’s old ass DVD series, ZCUT Cardio. I don’t think you can even buy it any more, but I got it, when it first came out. I’ve done most or all of the 12 workouts sporadically, but I’ve never actually followed the 3 month program that came with it. My plan is to do the first month, and assuming I’m feeling good about it, carry on from there.
I’m just on a bodyweight-only kick right now, and want to do a prolonged experiment to see what, exactly, happens to my body if I don’t lift any weights for 3 (or so) months’ time. I may get bored. I may see the writing on the wall very early on, and decide I need weights again. But, I like the idea of the experiment.
More than anything, I like the idea of doing ANYTHING ELSE after the program I’m on, right now. Also, I got a new video up earlier this week, which always makes me feel super productive and great. Here it go.
