Day 6 of INSANITY: This was truly insane. My whole day yesterday was a typical Monday. It seemed like everything I touched turned to crap. I had fresh squeezed lemon juice on my desk for my water, spilled it all over my paperwork. I had a bowl of popcorn kernels that I dropped when I knocked over the juice. And so on and so on....that was my entire day. To top it all off I just didn't feel very good yesterday.
Once 5 o'clock came around my spirits were lifted, then I got to see my family and watch a ball game, getting better. Time for the gym...
I kept trying to tell myself that the time change had messed me up but I couldn't get it together. I was actually ready to get to the gym and get a workout in so I could go home and go to bed. Let's just get Monday over with.
I met my workout buddy later than normal because of ballgames and such. We got to the gym and got ready to work. Day 6 of INSANITY is the same as Day 2. On day 2 the workout was hard, on Day 6 it was impossible. I could just barely get through the warm up, but I did. Then stretch, ouch, let the craziness began.
The first circuit was a heart pounding, out of breath chaotic circuit. If I can remember correctly: Suicide runs, power squats, mountain climbers and one more. (can't remember) The lack of oxygen to my brain that started in the first circuit. I actually got through this circuit and I don't think I cussed the video in this one....that did not hold true for the entire workout.
Circuit 2: About 4 different variations of Burpees.
This part of the workout is when I knew I was going to die. I used the word can't more in this part of the workout than I have used in a year. Everything on my body was aching!!!!
Round 3: This is the closest I have come to crying during a workout in a really really long time. Now not only was I using the word "Can't" I was really believing that I COULD NOT finish this workout. This part started with basketball type jumps and then back to the burpee!!!!! "Really Sean T, What did I ever do to you????"
I got home, I still had some stuff to do but I took a small break, put some ice on the throbbing knee and relaxed for 15 minutes. I had a post workout recover snack and rested on the couch.
This morning I am not sore and I am feeling tons better than yesterday. I have no INSANITY workout tonight (insert joyful laughing and cheering here) but I do get to meet with my running group tonight, then Biggest Loser, how could that not spell out a great day.
