I turn the big 30 in February and last year I made a pledge to get into the best shape I’ve been in since college before that big day.
Then I tore my ACL and my workout plan switched from five mile trail runs to painful knee bends. Luckily, I made it through the six month recovery without any real weight gain although my cardio is in pretty bad shape.
When I was telling this tale to a good friend of mine, he told me I should try out the Insanity 60 day challenge. My friend is in really good shape so I take his advice when it comes to workouts.
So, I decided to give it a shot. So far I made it through the first week and have only had a few moments where I broke down in near tears on my living room floor. I can’t do every exercise 100% because of my knee (and I wear a brace and am very careful). To be honest though, I don’t think I’d be able to do it all even with a completely solid knee. It’s hard stuff.
I love the workouts so far. They are about forty minutes of intense interval training. I’m not sure I’ve ever sweat so much in my life!
If people have any interest, I’ll share my thoughts when I hopefully finish the program also.
It’s Halloween and that means we should make something scary! You pick!
15 Halloween Treats – I’m mainly posting cool Halloween recipes over the next week or so since it’s one of my favorite holidays for recipes. This is a good start though if you’re looking for something fun to make. Oh… also, my bloody worms of doom! (@ HuffPost)
