Insanity Week 2

Another week down, and I was able to do Insanity on all 5 week days.

Due to missing a day last week and making some changes this week, I'm still technically a few days off the calendar.  But I really think it's best for me to kind of adjust the schedule so that I take rest days when I actually need to take them and not when the schedule says to, etc.

I realized while doing it this week that some of the moves have been a bit easier now that I'm doing some of the discs for the second and third time.

Don't get me wrong - it's still tough, and I'm still a sweaty mess the whole time.  But I must be getting a little stronger since sometimes I'm able to do the moves more than I could last week.

I have decided that the Pure Cardio disc is one of the toughest for me.  I like to think I'm in a pretty good shape, but by the end of that workout I can hardly breathe and can't keep the sweat toweled off of me.

I haven't gotten to Cardio Abs just yet since I'm a few days behind, but I'll be adding that to the mix soon.  I'm kind of looking forward to it as strengthening my core is one of the key reasons for doing Insanity.  I know the entire series works your core (I can feel it!), but having some specific abs exercises worked in will be good.

I didn't do a workout yesterday because I ran 10 miles... 10 VERY hot and humid miles.  There were 7 of us running, which was great as it helped push everyone along.  But we were all miserable by the end.  Getting long runs in this time of year is never super fun.  I decided after the run there was no need to also do an Insanity workout.

And today?  Well, I need a rest day after 6 days of Insanity and running. (Because some days I do both!)
