I just might be insane...

Saturday, June 16, 2012

So doing the Shred on my non-running days hasn't gone so well...I think I'm just burnt out and need something different.

I found the Insanity workout program online...
I previewed a lot of the workouts and just by watching bits of the workouts, I've found a new drive and determination to commit to this program.
So tomorrow I'm going to take my measurements along with the fit test and before pictures. And then on monday, I'll start the workouts. I've already printed on the schedule and such. THe videos are streaming, so I just hope that I'm able to complete the workouts w/o any complications.
I counted out the weeks and it ends right before the schools start back up, so its a perfect summer challenge!

I want to keep running though, so I still have to figure out how to do both...
I think that I will run on my running days and come home, take a little break and then just try my best with the workout for that day. I'm pretty sure that I'm going to cut my miles back a bit and just do whatever the podcast is for the day...instead of what I have been doing, which is do the current C25k podcast and then do a easier week's podcast, so that I could get a longer run in.

oh and I'm just focusing on me or doing me for a while... if anything comes out of meeting that guy, then when and if something comes up...well then I'll let myself get that giddy anticipation feeling again, but I'm not going to sit around waiting for it. I'm just going to do me!

    I think I'm going to have to experiment with it for a bit...
    InSanity is going to be hard and I just don't want to burn out quickly by doing too much too soon or possibly getting sidelined by an injury. I want to try to find the perfect balance between the two, so I can keep working on my running goals(even if that means cutting back on my mileage goals during the program) and be able to complete the 9 week InSanity program.

    I was seeing some results from running or at least it was getting easier and I was going farther(plus muscles were starting to show again), but I couldn't seem to stick to something on my non-running days and really wanted to have a recovery day between runs even if I fighting the running itch on my recovery days.

    I think my main goal is to tone and tighten everything up and to lose some inches, but it I happen to lose a few pounds in the process, then it will just be a added bonus.

    emoticon It's important to take time for yourself. Now, if you're looking to lose weight, you WILL benefit by strength training AND running. I got the running down so well but I wasn't losing the weight. Once I added strength training, reduced my running to 30 min 5X daily, I'm experiencing much more success. Try to add both to your routine. It's important to take time for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
