Trend I've noticed for Insanity...

I'm on week 3 of month 2 (OMG only a week and a half left, this really FLIES BY!) and have totally noticed a trend.

When I was going into the Month 2 workouts I really didn't know if I could adapt to them because the Month 1 workouts seemed so hard in the first place. I have to say that you NEVER KNOW what you can do if you don't try. MIND OVER MATTER! I use mind over matter so much during my workouts, self talk in my head if you will, to keep going, push through the muscle burning, fatigue, nausea (yea it still comes but goes when I tell myself I'm not going to get sick), etc. and just keep going no matter how much it's burning & I want to stop. Why? Why not? I want to see what I can do.

Anyway back to the trend for Insanity (at least for ME). The first week (month 1 and month 2 both) was a lot of muscle DOMS & a LOT of mental shifting to make myself push through & survive & just complete it. The 2nd week, DOMS minimal (still there, everywhere) & way more manageable & you start noticing improvements on how hard you can push on the workouts. The 3rd week definately less DOMS, can most definately push HARD on the workouts & start keeping up with the people on the video.

The first & second weeks of Month 2 I could say max interval circuit was my favorite, probably because from the beginning I felt the strongest on that WO than any of the other month 2 ones. Yesterday I did max interval plyo & ROCKED IT for the first time, I LOVE getting better! This morning was Max cardio conditioning & cardio abs (for the 2nd time together) & I did NOT have that lay on the floor/mat wanting to die thing happen. I was stronger, I pushed through & it was AWESOME. I love the feeling of accomplishment I get from these workouts!

That's about all I got for right now. Booty is a burnin, good stuff!
