Today’s 43 was as much about stretching as anything!!! I did a side lunge with a toe touch and counted a right lunge and left lunge as 1 rep so it was 43 each side.
Here is a side view – all my weight is back in my butt (pretty much true all the time but especially when I lunge and squat!!).
Nice to do a move that doesn’t require a lot of jumping!!
Today I did my last Insanity Asylum workout – the Fit Test. I did this same test the day before I started the program and now after completing the program – I improved in all 9 drills!!!
#1 – Agility Heisman – (using ladder) I went from 7 to 9.5
#2 – In & Out Abs – these are all done to the 2nd rung – I went from 20 to 35
#3 – Lateral Push-Ups (alt. sides) – 16 to 25
#4 – Standing Mountain Climber Switch Kicks – (heel has to come up above waist to count) – 54 to 70
#5 – Agility Push-ups (using ladder – down & back = 1 rep – touch hand to opp. shoulder for each move) – 4 to 6.5
#6 – X Jumps (squat down and touch toes – jump into X) – 42 to 49
#7 – Moving Push-Ups (using ladder – down & back = 1 rep) – I went from 3 to 5
#8 – Agility Heisman (different version than #1) – 11 to 15.5
#9 – Bear Crawls (with ladder – hop feet in at top and hands in at bottom) – I went from 7 to 10
Calvin & Hobbs sum up perfectly how I feel to be completely done with Insanity!!! I think the program is great but it was HARD!!! At some point
in about 20 years in the next year or so, I will probably go through the program again but for now I need a break from it!!!
My favorite thing about both Insanity and Insanity: The Asylum is
Shaun T when Shaun T says “Dig Deeper!!!”I will keep telling myself that while I move on to other workouts and finally get back to running!!! (I’ve been on a running break to try to reclaim my love of running – part of why I’ve been so focused on this crazy program!!)
And, on the running front – I’m ready to get back at it!!! Yesterday I even got these cool shoes because I
needed figured that it was as good a time as any to add another pair to my collection.
I haven’t run in Asics since college (that’s been a LONG time!!!) but the guys (at the store) convinced me to give these a try and see how they compare to Mizunos so I agreed because I love the colors!!! (oh, and they feel good, too)
Gotta get moving on Saturday – lots to do today!! Chris just left for a trip – I can’t say where all he is going but I will say that this
but it’s not quite the same!!!
