Today marks day 46 of INSANITY MAX: 30. I have not skipped one workout. Every morning at 4:30am I wake up and push play! I do admit that I have not been sticking with the nutrition as close as I would like. I am going to try and tighten that up the last week and a half. I am definitely stronger & feel better since beginning the program in January. If you are limited on time and want an intense workout - I would HIGHLY recommend MAX:30 as an option.
So… After MAX: 30 wraps up… what will I be doing? Will I start training for another marathon? (On a side note… I can't believe it has already been one year since the Tokyo Marathon!!)
I will be headed to Cancun, Mexico is in April and my goal is to continue with Beachbody programs to get me in the BEST shape ever. I created a hybrid workout schedule that will be starting immediately following INSANITY MAX: 30.
Here is how it will work:
Starting on March, 2 with the original INSANITY Fit Test. Every other Monday will be INSANITY MAX: 30, Tuesdays will be P90X3, Wednesdays are for PIYO, Thursdays are INSANITY, Friday is T25 Gamma and Saturday is INSANITY ASYLUM 1 & 2. Mondays will have Ab Attack 10 added to them from MAX: 30. Wednesdays will have Ab Ripper X added to them from P90X. The last day of the hybrid will conclude with the INSANITY Fit Test again.
When I get back from Cancun I will be starting the original P90X program. I have never completed P90X (the original) from start to finish. I will be honest with you - I am not doing to do the Yoga program. Its 90 minutes and I am not a yoga fan. I will not be skipping yoga. I will be switching the 90 minute P90X version with the 30 minute P90X3 version. I do not expect this to change my overall results.
My goal after P90X is to do INSANITY Asylum 1 & 2. After this I should be in peak physical condition. Oh… and it is perfectly timed to coincide with my wedding September 26 :) --- Convenient huh?
I would love to have some dedicated partners to join me on this journey. If you would like to do the hybrid, P90X, or Asylum 1 & 2 with me… Let me know!
So now…. here is the big question. Mr. Insane Marathon, I don't see any marathons on your calendar. Why is that?
The quick answer… I have completed 25 full marathons, countless half marathons & shorter distance races. I am still going to be running local 5ks, 10ks, and a few half marathons that pop up. I just do not want to dedicate the time necessary to marathon training. My goal is to get my total body in the best absolute shape. I want to see aesthetic results. After my wedding - I plan on getting back into a solid running routine. Possibly signing up for the Disney Marathon in January next year and actually racing it. I will keep you posted.
Have you done any of these programs before? What were your results? Where did you struggle? Where did you see success? I would love to know.
