I am absolutely new to training and a medical condition prompted me to look out for fitness. I am 39 (female) and have always been petite, weight around 50-53 kgs, 5'3". I came across Darebee and I started the Foundation program. I did not lose any weight ( I had put on 5 kgs), but I could see my body being toned up and lost an inch or two. Moved to 30 days of HIIT and am almost towards the end of that now. I also started running ( Walking to running program and then now doing the The Long Run Program- also towards the end of it). I could not run even for a minute when I started out, today I ran 5 kms in 30 min, so that's a huge achievement for me. I feel much fitter, lost a few inches (though have to lose more) and feel more energetic
I am doing the HIIT (around 15-20 min each day) and running (depending on the program) everyday.
A week back, I had this terrible feeling that my body is giving up on me, I felt totally exhausted and out of energy to even move !!
So I took 2 days rest and resumed.
My question is : 1. Why did I suddenly feel exhausted? How do I avoid this?
2. I lost 2-3 inches in 2.5 months but now I feel my body is not responding that much as before. Am I doing something wrong?
3. I do 20 pushups (modified on knees) and 20 crunches and 20 sit ups everyday, is that ok or do I give a gap?
Am really sorry for such a loong post, but I do not have anyone to ask and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance !!
