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.
