This is an INTENSE workout. I made it through the first set of continuous moves pretty well, I’d say. I never had to stop and rest…I just went at my own pace, as the workout instructs you to do. I made sure I was going as fast as possible at the end of it. Then, there’s the stretching and that was a nice break and it felt good. The 2nd and 3rd sets of plyo-cardio were increasingly tough and intense. I made it through the 2nd one okay, but then was so tired by the third one that I just had to do my best and forget the rest. The only time I touched the remote was to rewind it back to a move, just because I had to see what to do (since it was my first time and all). They move so quickly that it was a learning session as well.

Insanity is the real deal. You have to be ready to man up, and you have to be ready to push yourself…or “dig deeper.” It’s incredible. I’m eating good and staying with it. After yesterday’s wooziness, I was a little worried. I actually left work early because I got sick, which I’m still not sure it is was related to the workout or not. I was feeling good going into work, so I don’t know. I sort of felt the same way after my first workout of P90X, so I’m not surprised or bothered by it long-term.

Tomorrow is Cardio Power and Resistance. I’ll try to do it early in the morning so I can just relax the rest of the day, though I will need to try to fit in a run too. I am training for a 5K that is May 1st, so I can’t forget about that.

All I have to say is WHOA. Intense….but great! I love the challenge it brings! Shaun T is serious. He leaves no room for excuses, and that is great! It just pushes you to improve over and over.

Overall, I am glad I struggled with part of today’s workout. It gives me something to improve upon…to push toward! I want to look back and see how far I’ve come when this is all said and done.

Thanks for checking in!
