It’s Week 6 of Insanity, which means it’s time for another fit test. Behold, the results:
However, after the fit test, the workout had to go on, and here’s where it gets painful. Going into it, I heard that the Insanity world totally changes in Week 6. What had become a difficult workout just gets taken to a whole new level. And I believed it, because that just makes sense to do. All the same, I wasn’t quite ready for the reality of it.
Put it this way. By the end of Week 4, I won’t say the workouts had become easy, because they hadn’t. But I had definitely become used to them. I knew what to expect, where the real ball-buster parts were, and I’d gone through all of the various workouts enough so that I was comfortable with them. And then last week, the Recovery Week, the workouts pulled back a step or so in intensity, which made me even more confident.
Tonight was Max Interval Circuit. The first thing that stood out was its length – a full hour, as opposed to 37 minutes for its equivalent in the first month. Add to that the fact that the Fit Test took 25 minutes, and I was already fairly tired at the beginning. Not to mention by the middle. Nkechi Kwenu, who I mentioned before is my favorite of the people who documented their Insanity experiences on YouTube, said at the end of this day’s workout, “Shaun T is a murderer.” I’m not going to go that far. But it was pretty intensely challenging.
This next month is going to be pretty interesting, looks like. I’m looking forward to it. 🙂
