Insanity - Day 5

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Day 5 was packed full of cardio - Pure Cardio.

Let me just say WOW, Ouch, Crap, I am dying, Ugh!
The title of this day defines the pain and agony you are going to put your body through.
I went into it know that it was going to be demanding on my energy level and bodies capabilities. But I accepted the challenge.

I ingest some e&e to get the body ready to take on the challenge, got my frogg togg wet, and fulled the water bottle with ice water. Let the next 36 minutes be committed to myself and some caloric burn. I even recorded my calories so I would know how much I was actually burning. I felt like I was dying, I wanted to puke, I hurt so bad, I was breathing so hard and was ready to cry. But I did not give up, I took a few breaks to breathe and ingest water but went back at it. I was not going to let Insanity beat me - I conquered.

After the workout was complete, I had to hang out in the basement for a while because my body was shaking intensely. I knew if I tried to get up the stairs, I might collapse.

Good Times - On to Day 6 I go....

Great job getting through it!

    Great job on taking this head on! I know this day seems like such a challenge because there aren't the usual breaks in between. Good for you for not giving up!

    Good for you for pushing through it. Keep up the good work, there was a time when I thought I was going to throw-up. Keep pushing play and digging deeper.

    It does get relatively easier! I promise! Pure Cardio is one of the DVD's I've been doing on and off since I finished the first round. I love it. Mostly because you only do each exercise once. When I feel exhausted, I just tell myself I can do ANYTHING for one minute! Makes me dig deeper throughout the whole DVD!

I'm looking forward to Pure Cardio tonight even though I'm super sore everywhere! Should be interesting to see how it goes when I've been doing that one all along. I feel like it's going to be tough just because I'm so sore already.

Have a great day!
