Ignition

I am on Day 67 of P90X and I have been BRINGING IT.  Yesterday was a rest day---but I was dying to try an INSANITY video.  I am planning on jumping into the 60 day Insanity program after P90X, but I really wanted to see what the workouts were like.  Oh my--- I thought I sweated with P90---well the videos live up to their name--the workout was INSANE.  I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest.  The warm up was KILLER.  The intervals are intense and are devised to keep increasing your heart rate with each level.  The rest periods were too short for me--my heart rate was still pounding away by the time the next interval started--I had to hit "pause" a couple of times until I could bring my HR down. 

I think the Insanity workouts are just what I need to take off the extra weight.  I can not wait to get started.  In the meantime, I still have a couple of weeks left of P90X and working under the premise that muscle helps burn fat, I want to complete P90X before moving on. 

I ran 3 miles on my own today--a first time in a long time that I have run without C.  I felt strong.  I started off running 3:1 run:walk ratio and ended up running without a walk break for last .8 mile--and oddly enough the first mile was still my fastest---go figure, Jeff Galloway may be onto something.

C and I signed up for Asbury Park Race for Hunger 10K---I better start training.

Insanity will be by far the hardest workout you will ever do. You will never be the same after you've finished it. Just wait until you get to the 2nd month - those workouts will make the first month seem easy! But it is such a confidence booster and totally worth every drop of sweat. Can't wait to read about

Thanks for the info, Kelly. I have a week of P90X left and then I am going to jump into Insanity. I have already done two of the workouts---I just picked randomly----they were sooooo hard, but I loved it. I had to press pause frequently just to catch my breath and bring my heart rate down to an acceptable level:)
