Well, this week's Neural Reboot 2 introduced from rolling of the quads - the rectus femoris and vastus lateralis. Laying on the roller was a challenge. I felt like a beached whale trying to get on there! Then came the actual rolling of my right leg. OMG I thought I was going to die! There was instant pain that felt like someone was stabbing my leg multiple times. I was crying and screaming a little while trying to roll. Then I started laughing...I don't know why experiencing this pain was so comical to me. Then came the left leg. Hello, pain! Where did you come from? I had no idea there were tight spots on my left leg too!
Benny was watching me the whole time. While I was the beached whale screaming and crying I told him that we should've filmed this experience for America's Funniest Home Videos!
Well, all that pain made me nauseous and I had much difficulty performing the rest of the workout. I shook for hours afterwards the first day. It was around day 4 that the pain had subsided enough post foam rolling that I could complete the rest of the workout as my normal self. Sure, the pain is still there when I roll the quads but it's nothing like those first few days.
There were several other new moves in Neural Reboot 2 but it was all a blur because of the pain. I completed everything but it wasn't an enjoyable week. This set of Tai Cheng moves was more complicated than the first ones so I think I missed out on the full experience since I was concentrating on making the pain go away.
