Friday... I decided that I didn't have time to squeeze in my INSANITY workout before we left for Kansas City. We didnt do much packing on Thursday. I wanted to get there in time to help my sister with any last minute wedding tasks.
I'm sure that I could have taken my DVD's with me and tried to do the workout around the kids and luggage in the room, but I opted not to. We ended up getting back to the room post Kiddie Bedtime, and I used the hotel treadmill for a short run. Those 3 miles were hard to get through, and I just wanted it over with!
At least I did a workout today. Something is better than nothing.

Cardio Power & Resistance
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
This is my Master Plan - Muahahahah!!!
I realized that if I want to run a Half Marathon on 9/3, that my training will have to overlap the INSANITY program. So I sat down today and figure up the next 20 weeks or so for mileage. Gotta work up slow so I don't hurt my knees. Oh, and lets throw a long distance relay race in there on 10/1 for good measure.
Yah. That ought to keep me out of trouble for a few weeks.

This is me. Glowing red eyes and all - hey, not a bad photo for a 9 year old. I don't do the bra top photos... my belly has told me repeatedly that she's not going anywhere, so why show you before and after? If I send in my before and after photos, I will get a free INSANITY t-shirt. Woooo....
And here we have a horrible picture after a horrible workout. I could not properly convey the amount of sweat dripping from my hair/nose/chin but you get the idea.
Cardio Power and Resistance started out with a similar 10 minute warm up, followed by 6 or so minutes of stretching. It's still a little weird to stretch for that long, that far in to a workout - but technically, those first 10 minutes ARE a warm up. I guess.
There was a lot more jumping in this workout - using your own body weight as resistance to tone your legs. I don't have a problem with squats and kicks - but this white girl CAN'T jump. Or, rather, "I currently struggle with" jumping. Not much air for me, but I keep trying.
We had some walking and inverted push ups, some triceps dips (one-legged as well) and some crazy Ball Tricep Dips. Hard to explain that one - but suffice it to say that I can feel all of this in my shoulders already.
Tomorrow is Cardio Recovery...maybe a little break!?
