Back At It

If you’ve been reading my blog for the past week, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve altered the INSANITY schedule a little bit throwing in an extra rest day before my race and not working out on Mother’s Day.  I want to let you know that all stops today. I am 100% back at INSANITY and going to keep up with the schedule, giving INSANITY all that I have!

Today calls for the Fit Test, which I will be doing after work around 5 o’clock.  I am also going to throw in Cardio Abs afterwards since that is part of the workout that I missed on Mother’s Day.

Today is also a special day as it is the start of my new running plan.  I will be posting more on this later but today’s running workout calls for 5 x 1000m repeats with a 4 minute break between them.  It’s a good thing this is my first round of repeats as I don’t have anything to compare it to.  It will be following on the tail of my INSANITY workout and I may be a little tired to begin with, but hopefully that means that by the next speed workout I’ll see faster results.  

Week 2 Begins

I am happy to announce that I have officially made it through my first week of INSANITY!

In retrospect, it was not all that terrible and I may have enjoyed myself (even if the feeling was fleeting).  It was definitely a good thing that I was held accountable by my twitter followers and this blog as there were a couple times (namely Friday) that I had zero motivation to turn on my DVD and sweat my heart out.

If you’re unfamiliar with how INSANITY goes, it is 6 days working out with one day of rest.  Every two weeks it calls for the Fit Test to benchmark progress.  The whole program is two months with one week of recovery in between.

Today was my INSANITY rest day and boy did I enjoy it.  I still went for a morning run, travelling 5km in just over 25 minutes.  

This week, now that I’m more familiar with the moves, I’m going to give everything I have so that by the time next week rolls around I will hopefully see marked improvement when I take my Fit Test 2. 

As for measurements, I will be taking those every Wednesday.

I hope y’all enjoyed my blogging thus far and continue to read on as I continue my journey.
