Round 2 / Day 13: Insanity Cardio Recovery

It feels a little like cheating to do an easy day of Cardio Recovery when I didn't actually do any cardio yesterday. But then again, the "deep muscle" section of this workout is no cakewalk -- it absolutely kills my glutes and quads every time Shaun T demands that we hold deep squats and lunges. It feels tougher than one-legged wall squats; after all, there's no wall.

Speaking of glutes, Shaun T likes to work the butt muscles. A LOT. My weak, flat Asian ass finds this somewhat problematic.

[UPDATE: My calves and arches are still crazy-sore, so my barefoot loop around Palo Alto today was super-slow today, covering only about 6.5 miles in an hour and fifteen minutes.]
