Yesterday’s workout was the cardio recovery Insanity DVD. As the name suggests it is a “recovery” day, so the workout was a bit different. Instead of a fast paced high intensity workout, the pace is slower with controlled movements. Apparently Shaun T’s definition of “easy” is a bit different than mine as I couldn’t even manage to do all of these workouts without taking breaks!
If I had thought I was in good shape, this would definitely have cured me of that misconception. I have a LOT more work to do on my core strength – fortunately Insanity has a focus on that very thing! It was a lighter workout however as I am not in a whole lot of pain today. I do like the amount of stretching in the program as I need that!
So the best part of the workout? MY NEW SHOES ARRIVED!
As you might imagine, I was more than a little bit excited to have them finally arrive! I used them for my Insanity workout and didn’t fall on my butt! Following that I headed out for a run! The first one in weeks!
I could still feel the plantar faciitis of course, but it wasn’t to bad. Despite the urge to go and go and go (as any runner has experienced after time off) I kept myself to a mile. The run felt good, although I could tell that Insanity had worked my legs out!
Not a bad day! It felt sooooo good to be running!
