Today I am feeling ready to take on the world. I woke up early this morning, around 5, in order to fit in my INSANITY workout before going to work. Normally I set my alarm early with the idea of a morning workout, but if that alarm goes off anytime before 6:30 I tend to snooze through it. That was not the case today! I was up bright and early! I find that as the sun rises earlier, the weather gets warmer, and the birds chirp louder, getting out of bed earlier gets easier.
Today called for Cardio Power & Resistance. It was good that it followed a rest day as I could feel that my muscles had a chance to recover. This morning I really focussed on dropping my squats down low and perfecting my form. I felt those extra couple inches, especially on the power jumps! And maybe I’m seeing things, but I think my behind looks a little perkier today.
Overall, I will definitely do morning INSANITY workouts again. Because the warmup is long and intense, the first round gives you a time to wakeup and get focussed on working out. By the time stretching finished, I felt like I had been awake for awhile; I definitely was no longer groggy.
Since I feel like superwoman, I brought my running clothes to go for a lunch run in the trails behind my work. I’m really enjoying the balance that INSANITY and running are bringing to my fitness regime. Maybe if I’m super amped, I will hit up a yoga class tonight.
Yours in fitness.
