Project Warrior Goddess: progress update…

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 πŸ™‚

If you haven’t read about my latest reboot : Project Warrior Goddess then go read it and come back πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ˜€ My legs will complain, but they will also improve πŸ˜€

Insanity day 2 is going to happen tonight after pottery, I’ll let you know how I get on πŸ˜€

shaun t you can do it
He says this a lot…he is quite convincing so I might just survive this πŸ˜€

(FYI I have already had PT today…lucky for my legs it was upper body)

  1. Jumping is good! Insanity looks terrifying, I must say – even thinking about it brings me out in a sweat. You are a legend! Legs always complain about things, maybe just ignore them. They will be really pleased when they are explosive again! Not literally explosive, I mean, that would be dangerous. Good luck! And with the pottery, I like the pottery πŸ™‚

    1. My legs are always complaining…If I listened to them too hard I’d never run or anything!

      They will love being explosive πŸ˜€
      (eeek no, not literally that could be a problem)
      I like the pottery too πŸ˜€ I want to do it all the time, along with photographing and printing…
      work gets in the way!

      1. Tell the legs to complain to the brain and that might stop the brain thinking the negative stuff that gets in the way πŸ™‚ Cunning plan! In the meantime, you can get on with warrior goddess-ing while they are distracted! πŸ˜€
        Work is so annoying. Why can’t work be done while asleep? That would make sense and leave more time for the excellent stuff. πŸ™‚
