In fact, it seems a LOT easier than U5 because usually I'm so ready to be done by the end of 1 mile on U5 but today, without even knowing I did it, I completed 2 miles on 3 mile party. I kept waiting for her to say "You did a mile!" But she didn't and I didn't know at first that there would be that little "Mile" tape in the corner of the screen.
Lol I didn't like it the first day either but then after day two and three I loved it. I just remember with that one and the a radio remix DVD thinking that the slow part of the HIIT was worthless. Well apparently it is all the rage and I can attest it works! I don't understand why, but it does. I know that you really have to exert yourself and jog or run hard during the thirty seconds to have it work. Somedays I space out and don't even realize I did the HITT and then I'm not sweating or breathing hard. It is still one of my favorites, but I have found I need to mix up the DVDs so I don't zone out. Plus supposedly it's better for you to not do the same one every day.

My two week break from the college class ended so I had to teach tonight. This means my new day off for the next 8 weeks is Friday. I don't like having Friday off because we usually go out to dinner and I want the exercise. But I can't get home so late and get up at 4:30! My parish has a Friday night soup meal during lent so I'm going to try to talk DH into going but he never wants to as they are too bland for him.
