I’m officially committed. After the half marathon on the 17th, I’m going to start the Insanity program. There will be no running, no Zumba, no weight lifting. Just pure Insanity. Can’t you hear the excitement? LoL!
Actually, I am really excited for this. It is something new and already set up for me to do. Lauren and I had been talking about how we haven’t been seeing any gains in our running which has made us really lack the motivation to do it. I haven’t gotten any faster, I’m not running any further, and let’s not even talk about weight loss/gain. I like running when I see results and when I’m not seeing results, I just get discouraged. Yes, I know I should be more determined then but with the stress of school, I just don’t have the energy to turn it around. I think a change of pace is exactly what I need!
The program is 60 days long and I will try not to bore you guys with daily recaps but I will try to check in on them just to be accountable! During this 60 days though, I will be thinking about my running in the future because I’ve officially registered for another marathon in October!
I will have to sit down and figure out a training schedule and exactly when I should start “training” for it. I would like to do a more modern form of training that might include things like power lifting, CrossFit, or maybe the Insanity or P90X videos. That will take a lot of research. I used to just depend on Hal Higdon’s website but all of his training revolves around running, running, and more running. I’d like something more diverse! So I’ve got 60 days of intense training with Insanity in order to really think about how I want to train for this marathon!
On that note…
Who is going to do Insanity with me?
I start on Monday, March 19th
