A part of me is seriously questioning my sanity here... Am I really going to do this? AGAIN? And not just a second time - oh no! - this will the THIRD round of Insanity.
Craziness, right? Maybe.
Lately I have caught myself reading and commenting on Insanity blogs, all the while feeling that surge of craving, of want and need growing stronger. I really want to do this. Again. It's been a long time since I did Insanity - finished round one last March and did round two in May/June. So It's not like I'll just pick it up where I left off, you know? I am so looking forward to the torture and exhaustion and maybe even praying to the oxygen gods a time or two.... LOL!
So on Saturday I did it. The Fit Test. I refused to check my previous results, this will be a new start, not a continuation of round one or two. No comparisons! I won't even look at my previous before/after pics. I took a new set of before pics and they scare the bejesus out of me. I still have SUCH a long way to go. So many kilos and several clothes sizes, to be perfectly imprecise.
I am in week 9 of the P90X program and am also running 30 km (close to 20 miles) a week. And somehow I will fit another hour of exercise a day into this? Um, yeah...
So, here they are. The numbers from my first Fit Test for round three!
Switch kicks ~ 59
Power jacks ~ 52
Power knees ~ 100
Power jumps ~ 45
Globe jumps ~ 12
Suicide jumps ~ 19
Push-up jacks ~ 24
Low plank obliques ~ 58
I did the Plyo workout today and it went well. I still struggle with the level 1 & 2 drills, especially the ski abs. My arms become noodle-like half way into this exercise and I would collapse on my face if I didn't take a break for a second or two.
Here is one of the "before" pics I took on Friday. Certainly hoping for something nicer when the time comes for an "after" pic.
So, let the INSANITY begin!
