Insanity Workout: Fit Test #3 & Max Interval Circuit
Month 2 of my Insanity Challenge began today! I started out with doing our third Fit Test and I improved in each move. Some moves improved by a little and some by a lot but either way I think any improvement is good! I only had a enough time to do the Fit Test before I had to work tonight. I know I can’t do these Month 2 workouts so late at night. Well, I had to workout to Max Interval Circuit as soon as I got home since it’s a 60-minute workout. This is the same workout I had tried a couple weeks ago at Eddie’s house with him and Marina. I had to stop half-way through because I was feeling pain in my jaw. I went too fast and too hard and I definitely learned my lesson.
This time around, I took breaks when I needed to, slowed down but kept on going, worked on my breathing, and modified a few moves. My knees felt a little sore so I had to take it easy on any jumps or squats. Half-way through, I felt like I wanted to quit. I was very tired and I didn’t have a lot of energy. I was thinking why am I doing this to myself and I remembered why. I kept on going and somehow gained a little more energy to help me get through the workout. I am so happy I was able to get through it this time around without having to stop or even pause the DVD. This was the most sweat I have ever worked up during Insanity so far. I even had my fan on at the highest setting and I was still sweating so much.
Tomorrow is Max Interval Plyo and I have heard that it is the hardest workout of the whole program. I’m for sure going to do this workout early in the day. I’m sure Shaun T will take “Digging deep” on a whole new level and I’ll be ready!
