Insanity Day 5

To quote Shaun T, “This Shit is Bananas!” 

OH….. MY….. GOD!  Pure Cardio was pure hell.

Every other workout so far in the insanity series has been 3 minutes at high intensity with a 30 second break, continuous for about 30 minutes (and a 5 minute warmup/cool down).  But not Pure Cardio.  No…that would be too easy.  Pure Cardio is nothing but cardio for THIRTY EIGHT MINUTES (give or take 5 minutes for a slight warmup/cool down), with NO breaks!  I hated this workout, but the best part was seeing all the people behind Shaun T. curl up in child’s pose or laid out like a pancake on the floor.  Even Shaun T., himself, couldn’t keep up.  He asked himself, out loud,  why he did this to himself…and he said, “Because I like to look good”…lol.  At least he’s honest!

So, I made it through, barely, and then took my victory marker and crossed today’s hellacious workout off the calendar.   Success…another workout down!

So, as I drank my protein shake, holding up the wall and patting myself on the back, I glanced over the rest of the schedule and saw Pure Cardio AGAIN in only THREE more workouts and then AGAIN WITH an additional DVD called Cardio Abs FOUR days later!  OMG!  It’s only just begun.

OK, breathe…wooo-saaaah.  One day at a time, right?!

…I think I need a drink!  😉
