Insanity Day 4 & 5
Friday, May 04, 2012
An update! I'm pretty sure day 4 aka Cardio Recovery is my favorite day so far in the Insanity workout. That could just be the lazy in me talking though. It really is a recovery, and a much needed one. It was 30 minutes of stretching basically... well almost. I loved it though. Might I had that it was by no means "easy" just "easier" the poses, the burning, the sweat still dripping, it was a work out for sure, but after I felt so good, and the soreness from the previous days has subsided mostly.
Day 5, Pure Cardio... or what I like to call Pure Hell. It was the most insane workout so far. Absolutely. Insane. I kept up with the video a lot more than I thought I would be able to. That in itself made me feel good. I feel like I can already tell a difference in my stamina and ability, even after only a few days. I'm pushing myself harder and getting through more and more of it. Even though there's technically no "breaks" in Pure Cardio, I definitely had to take some, which is fine, because I promise you, when I was laying on the floor trying to catch my breath, there was at least one person on the screen doing the same thing.
I have to say so far, I really love Insanity, as insane as it is. I think it's just what I've been looking for. I mean, I'm pretty crazy myself, so I think it's a good fit. I love the fast pace, the constantly changing exercises, the sweat literally dripping off me... I even like Shaun T, he's like that nutty physical trainer that you love to hate and sometimes want to punch in the face. Just saying. That said, I feel great, I feel like my clothes are already fitting different, and I can't wait to see the results in a few weeks!
On a food note, I haven't been following any particular diet, but I've been working on balancing my meals, protein and veggies and staying away from the processed carbs. So far so good!
