Les Mills Pump Day 32

Les Mills Pump Workout: Hard Core Abs & Flow
Insanity Workout: Max Interval Circuit

It was another day off relaxing and also getting some small things done from home.  I woke up early but went back to bed.  I woke up a lot later than I wanted to the second time.  I weighed myself when I was finally up and I lost another 2 pounds!  10 pounds total since August 27th!  I am very close to where I was at the end of my second round of Insanity and the lowest weight that I have been at in years.  I think I’ll be able to get to it by the end of the week.  Yes it’s almost the end of the week but after all the workouts I have done today, it’s possible.

I worked out to Hard Core Abs and Flow this afternoon.  I found it a bit harder while working out to Hard Core Abs.  I’m not sure if it’s because I might be a little sore.  I did more than I did the last time I worked out to Hard Core Abs by trying not to modify as much in plank position.  Following that workout, I took on a challenge that one of the group members posted.  It was to see how long one can stand next to a wall in the squat position.  My time was 2 minutes and 1 second.  That was definitely not easy and as much as my legs were shaking and burning, I held out as long as I could.  I had to take a minute after I was done to recover.  I wouldn’t have been able to hold out so long if it weren’t for Les Mills Pump and their squats galore lol.  I’m sure I’ll be able to go longer as I lose more weight and get stronger.  I then worked out to Flow which was relaxing as usual.  My exercise for the day was not complete.  We worked out to Insanity’s Max Interval Circuit at Fit Club tonight.  I haven’t done any month two Insanity videos since June.  I was out of breath a bunch of times but I kept up as best as I could.  I was definitely doing Child’s Pose a few times throughout my workout.  At the end, I was sweating hardcore.  Clearly my endurance needs to be worked on.

I need to work on my endurance to not only be able to keep up whenever I workout to Insanity, but because I signed up for my first ever 5K race.  I will be doing the Hot Chocolate 5K in Chicago on November 4th.  I have been wanting to participate in a 5K race for some time now.  What a better way to run in my first one with chocolate being the main focus haha.  I won’t splurge too much and at least it’ll be early on a Sunday so it’s like a cheat day.  I am not a runner at all so I will have to start training tomorrow.  I am also raising funds before the race for Ronald McDonald House Charities® Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.  To learn more about their cause or to make a donation, please visit https://ramracing.racebx.com/fundraising/view/5064b246-9fa4-4613-8905-362cc0a86524.  Any amount will greatly be appreciated!  Thanks!
