Insanity Reboot

Saturday, July 20, 2013

On Day 4 of my first Insanity attempt I injured my knee. Even wearing knee supports did not protect it from suffering from my excessive weight and perhaps an excessive stretching/jumping around.

Thus, I have given my knee a few days to heal and am now nearing full range of movement. By Monday I should be able to begin the program again.

One problem I am having is the food. I do not like cottage cheese so the only sources of protein I have are chicken and egg whites. Peanut butter may have a moderate amount of protein but even the reduced fat version has too much fat for me.

The Recovery Formula is actually pretty good tasting and has kept me from being sore. Perhaps going to work for 8 hours after exercising is also helping me keep from being sore but up until Day 4 I was doing great!

Anyone else have this problem and have to restart? Do you redo everything (like measurements and the fit test)?

    I am on the recovery week of Insanity and my body is so sore. Have you let your knees recover? Make sure you don't have any injury so as not to aggravate it. Previous to Insanity, I did Chalean Extreme but I had wrist pains. I had to lay off weights for almost two months.

I am not sure if you need to restart everything but I guess to maximize effects, maybe you need to. I am not fond of the Fit test but I have to do it. We must all be insane but we have to do it!
