Insanity Day One: Shaun, you’re gonna have to wait.

So, today was my first day of Insanity. I skipped the Fit Test because I’m impatient. (I know, shame on me). Man, was it rough.  But that’s how I am at the beginning of all workout DVDs I’ve ever done so I am not discouraged.  I didn’t do all of the sets.  And I had to take several breaks. (And by breaks I mean a few minutes of me sprawled floor in front of a fan).  But I made it through and I was super pumped about that.

All in all, I’m pleased and sort of looking forward to tomorrow (despite the fact that I know I’ll be extremely sore.

I guess I should take pictures and measurements and all that good stuff for future comparisons? I’ll see what I can do.

Spent about an hour at the gym.

40 mins on the treadmill alternating between walking on an incline and jogging flat.

The rest spend doing high knees, butt kicks, squats, and lunges.

Came home and did arms and abs.

My Jump Rope Workout (based on 100s).

I start with some general stretches (especially shoulders) and then…

100 slow double bounce hops.

100 slow alternating feet jumps.

100 fast hops.

100 fast jumping-jack jumps.

100 slow criss-cross jumps.

100 fast high knee jumps.

100 fast jump-lunge jumps.

100 fast criss-cross jumps.

100 fast butt-kick jumps.

50 right leg hops, 50 left leg hops (slow double bounce).

100 slow alternating feet humps.

100 slow double bounce hops.

And end with some more stretches.

(This usually takes me about 40 mins.  I’ve found it’s a lot less intimidating for me to concentrate on the numbers instead of the time. And watching TV helps too =D).
