Pure Cardio

As some of you may know, my passion remains with running.  Coming up, I have a 5k race at the end of this week and a half marathon the last weekend in May.  

Alongside INSANITY I am trying to keep up with my running schedule.  If you are a runner you’re probably familiar with weekly long slow distances that accompany the majority of running plans.  Today I went out and did my long run, around two hours, and by the time I got home my knee was ready for some ice and rest.  Because of this, I did not do my INSANITY workout today.  I do not feel all too guilty as I still went out and ran for quite some time; even though it wasn’t a HIIT workout, I feel as if it could be classified as “pure cardio.”

I will get back into the INSANITY grind tomorrow and continue it this week.  However, I will be taking a rest day on Friday, the day before my race, to let my muscles recover and prepare for Saturday morning’s event.  As of right now, I am still planning on doing the INSANITY workout on Saturday after my race, as it’s only a 5k.
