Monday (11/16/09) – Insanity Pure Cardio
Tuesday (11/17/09) – Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit
Wednesday (11/18/09) – Insanity Cardio Recovery – I was invited to a meeting from the guy I met last Friday doing our 8 mile run. He is a part of the Infinite Multisport Club which is a group of people who do marathons, duathlons, triathlons, and Ironman competitions. These people train together and keep each other moving towards living a healthy life through these events. The room was full of people from various ages and fitness levels so it was fun to hear them talk about their accomplishments. The meeting took place in a store that specializes in running. They had a guest speaker come to the event and his name was Nick Arciniaga. He told us about his story of running the New York Marathon a couple weeks earlier and finishing in 8th place. He ran it in 2:13:46. Click Here For Results. Ridiculous. I thought I did pretty good a couple years ago when I did the Detroit Marathon in 4:25:01. This guy runs it twice as fast as I did. His running pace is 13 MPH. Holy Shit!! Think about that for a second. The next time you are cruising down the road in your car at 13 MPH and imagine somebody running on the sidewalk keeping up with you.
Thursday (11/19/09) – Insanity Max Interval Circuit
Friday (11/20/09) – 8 Mile Run – My buddy asked me to go running again with him. We were averaging around 9 minute miles. The light mist in the air did not help. I did not run as well because my sinuses got clogged up causing me not to breath as well. My body felt fine but when you lose about 40% of the normal oxygen going into your body I guess it makes a difference. We kept laughing as we thought about the guy from the previous night running twice as fast as us.
Saturday (11/21/09) – Day Off
Sunday (11/22/09) – Day Off
Had a very good week of working out. Four days of Insanity and one day of long distance running was good. I’ve been able to almost make it through a couple of the Insanity workouts without stopping. Probably another month of doing it and it will happen.
