Insanity

I did an Insanity workout today with my sister.  (I think it was Cardio and Resistance, or something like that.)

I really wasn't sure what to expect, but after 40 minutes my muscles were shaking and I was dripping sweat.

It was hard, but it wasn't SO hard that I couldn't at least attempt it.

The biggest thing was that I had done some HARD rock climbing and bouldering last night (it was my last day of membership so I had to make it count!), so my little arms were still pretty sore.  I could NOT handle any push ups today.

I'm thinking about trying to find someone and borrowing it from them... and committing to the 60 day program and seeing what happens. 

I'm still not running enough, but I figure I'm doing better about being more active again at least.  And if I got really fit from Insanity in the couple of months leading up to when I'd truly start training for the 50K?  Well, that wouldn't suck.

It makes sense to do it right now when I still don't need to be doing high mileage.  Granted, I need to be doing highER mileage seeing as I have a 10-miler next month and a half in July... but we'll get there.

I also had dinner with a friend of mine from high school who is two days older than me.  We got to talking about starting the last year of our 30s and agreed we should do something monumental this year.  I need to start brainstorming on this.

Nonetheless, the short list is to run my first 50K (signed up!) and keep trying new things like I have been lately.  I think I want to take a class of some sort.  I have no idea what... but I want to learn something new.  I'm thinking I want it to be something not fitness related - just broaden my horizons or something.

Though trying Insanity for 60 days?  That would definitely count as trying something new, too!

I didn't try Insanity yet, but we bought Supreme 90 days and it is only $20 (Target, amazon)! It's similar to P90x just cheaper and the workouts are a little shorter.

Very behind - did you ever end up deciding to do Insanity? I did it last summer and noticed a huge difference in both my strength and my appearance.
