I have been in an Insanity workout mode for the past couple of weeks. This is one of the most difficult workout series I have ever done. I started it 3 years ago and I have done it ever since. I have added in karate and P90X2 along the way to keep it mixed up. Yet for cardio and simply leaving everything I have on the floor…this wins hands down.
Today I decided I needed to bring up the intensity level so I did the Max CardioConditioning workout. It is 45 minutes of hard endurance training. It was 45 minutes of life learning for me today. (more…)
A few weeks back I did a great job injuring my ankle….black, blue, green and huge are great descriptive words. Can I say I truly dislike being injured? There is nothing fun about it. One thing I have learned is how much I appreciate being well and whole.
After this injury, I decided I could not stop working out daily. This is to protect my family as well as my sanity. Working out to me is purpose, cleansing and challenging. I need this at least 6 days a week. It is necessary to my survival. Unfortunately I could not put on my shoes. Fat ankle = fat foot. (more…)
In fact a lot of pain is good. Some days I wish I could blog during my workouts. That is when I have great clarity in my mind and thought process. That also would be a little counterproductive…leaving the workout every time I feel inspiration. My workouts would never get done or they would take me 4-5 hours. (more…)
Working out is one of the most inspiring times of my day. I love the ideas I get and the lessons I am taught while I am sweating buckets. I find that when I am trying to avoid the pain that comes with improving myself, my mind tries to go anywhere else. It is in the wanderings that I have learned so much. (more…)
