Cardio, so we meet again….

Tuesday morning workout’s usually mean running group, strength training; but there was no group this morning, only me.  Normally when it is only me, we focus more on strength training, but today my trainer decided to throw in some cardio just so I wouldn’t forget what it felt like!  I haven’t really done a lot of cardio in about a month now.  I get in a little here and there, in my warm ups, but nothing that really gets my heart pounding out of my chest.  Today’s workout was a nice wake up call for my heart and lungs!

Cardio training involves less rest time between sets, lower weight, and higher reps.  The TRX circuit we did was very difficult to say the least.  The day is not even over and I can already feel it’s effects on my body!  I also did the fastest 1000m row I have done to date!  I actually really enjoyed mixing it up this morning but will be ready for some lifting tomorrow!
