Is day 2 too early to have a progress update?
Probably, but I am writing one anyway. Mainly because I am excited about the whole thing. I want to capitalise on the excitement…and as you know by now the more I tell you and the more often, the more likely I am to stick to what I say I will do 🙂
If you haven’t read about my latest reboot : Project Warrior Goddess then go read it and come back 😀
Now, for the update.
I wrote about my activity in Juneathon day 25 post, it involved a run and the first day of Insanity, which is the fitness test.
I am going to look in a bit more detail at the fitness test because it was an excellent way of quantifying where I am right now and what I need to work on. (yes I know it is the point of a fit test shhh) For this purpose I have dug out my fit test results from the first time I did Insanity 🙂 bearing in mind I did Insanity the first time right at the end of my first 365 project so the fact that I was fitter then does not come as a great surprise…
The interesting thing was for some of the exercises I was as good or (a very tiny bit) better and my general cardio fitness was not as bad as I expected. What was abundantly obvious was that my legs are significantly less powerful than they were. I am sure they are as strong (squats and leg press can prove this) but the explosive power and endurance that they had has decreased markedly.
Probably because I haven’t been training it.
So that is what I am going to have to do now…lots of jumping (and some getting lighter). Luckily Insanity has plenty of jumping in it 😀 My legs will complain, but they will also improve 😀
Insanity day 2 is going to happen tonight after pottery, I’ll let you know how I get on 😀
(FYI I have already had PT today…lucky for my legs it was upper body)
