Yesterday is probably the closest I have ever come to having a panic attack. I went in for the MRI on my hip and I really thought it would be no big deal. I assumed that I would only go into the tunnel to about mid-torso. I was wrong!!!! First, they had something strapped over my hips and my feet were banded together to hold my leg still. I was covered in a blanket and had huge head-phones on all while laying on a narrow slab. When they lab tech slid me down she kept going until I was completely in the tunnel – head and all. I almost freaked out!!! I started sweating and pretty much hyper-ventilating – complete panic mode set in. I closed my eyes and spent the first 5 minutes of the MRI trying to force myself to calm down and breathe slowly. In my head I knew that there was plenty of air and no reason to panic but my body disagreed. Oh well- I survived but it was a long 20ish minutes. Hopefully I won’t be repeating that experience any time soon!! :Tired:
On to the 43 for the day. I wanted a little cardio and nothing that involved arms because I knew what was coming up in my weights today. I started off by putting some masking tape on the floor like this:I used the tape as a guide for around-the-world jumps. I started in one corner, jumped front, side, back then reversed the jumps. Each rep consisted of 8 jumps (around-the-world and back). I did all of mine as double-leg hops but this could easily be changed to single-leg hops or more of a skip-type move. It was a quick 43 but got my heart rate up and I really felt it in my calves.
I know my head is chopped off in the demo – Jordan said I didn’t need a head – he thought the lines were far more important!!
The rest of my work-out was tough! Chalean Extreme – Burn Circuit 2. This one targets biceps, triceps and upper back – always leaves me shaky but in a good way!
Have a super Saturday! Hopefully you won’t be slid down into a tunnel!
