Second Half 90 seconds
The great thing about doing a class built on HIIT, is that you are most certainly pushing past your own personal limits both physically and mentally. To get to a certain stage in your fitness on your own is always difficult to conquer, but when you have some pushing you to more than what you think you can achieve is definitely something else.
Stepping off the treadmill today was more like wobbling off the treadmill, there was a stage when my legs didn't actually feel like my legs any more, they just felt legs jelly, your breathing is so heavy and hard that it doesn't feel like its you doing it, but you just have to push. Although there were points today when I did stop to catch my breath, will the feeling of not being able to get past it is just horrible. There was points that I truly did think I was going to see todays lunch again, but the worst thing about it, you move on and within a minute you've recovered and then you question yourself, can you push yourself harder or longer. Is there a point in my own head that I stopped not because I couldn't actually do it, but mentally I started to struggle.
Have to say that there is something so addictive about feeling of achievements afterwards, that you have achieved so much more than what you expected and you can give so much more. 24 hours is a bloody long time and will be a challenge both physically and especially mentally, but having faith and belief that we can do it will make the world of difference.
