Training for my first spartan race with Asylum 1

Sunday, March 03, 2013

With a little more than a month for my first race ever, I decided that I will get my self ready with Insanity the Asylum vol 1, why? because I think this is the best program or at least the one that will give me what I need to face this crazy thing I got my self into...hubby is asking me why do I want to do that to workout everyday at home what's the need for a spartan. Well, is more like a pride thing...I've been working out all this years since I had my daughter (5 years ago) and I have lost a lot of weigth, now I feel like I need something else, I need to challenge myself and see if I have what it takes to make it in a competition, I don't expect to win or finish with the first people, I just want to do it and finish it, and feel like hell yeah I got what it takes, I don't know if I make sense but I just want to do it...

So today I started my oficial training, I went for a run this morning while the clothes were washing in the laundry (better go and have a 1/2 hour run than just sitting there playing on my phone and watching infomercials while I wait for the clothes to finish washing), not bad I did 1.2 miles through hills in the park and a few stairs; then this afternoon I did the assessment test...totally kick my behind and I see that I still have a lot of room for improvement there so very excited about it.

agility Heisman:7.5

in & out ab progression: 18

Pull-ups/push-ups: 12

Mountain climbers switch kicks: 52

Agility shoulder taps: 5

X jumps: 30

Moving push-ups: 2

Agility lateral shuffle: 12

Agility bear crawl:5

so as you can see, room for improvement is I'll go do my 23 burpees for today and i'll hang on my pull-up bar for 30 sec at least to start building upper body strength
