INSANITY Strikes Again

Monday, February 21, 2011

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. emoticon

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!

    You are an emoticon inspiration. Pushing ourselves past our sometime self-imposed limitations is really a great way to feel great about ourselves. Good for you! emoticon
