Insanity Month 2 - (Stacia Naquin)

I'm in Month 2 of the Insanity program. I LOVE it so far. But now I'm starting to wonder if I can really push through this next month. This workout just got MUCH harder...


Not much at the gym intimidates me. I'm not afraid of the weight room. I've tried all sorts of workouts and classes. I've put in some serious time learning from different trainers. I've trained for and completed a half marathon. Through all of these experiences, I'm always excited to learn what I can and accomplish something new.
But I have to say. This time, I'm a little freaked.
I’m entering Month 2 of the Insanity program. And it’s got me pretty scared… scared that I may not be up to the challenge.
As I talked about in a previous blog, Insanity is a 60-day program that uses intense interval training and plyometrics to whip you into shape! I’m just over half-way done and I know my body is changing. I’m stronger. I’m more flexible. My heart recovers faster from all types of exercise (not just Insanity). So far it’s been awesome, even with the week I had to baby my knee to help it heal.
But Month 2 changes things up. It’s time to amp things up! And I’m worried I just won’t be able to hang. And here’s why:
A.    These Month 2 moves are on a whole different level of difficult! In fact, some of the moves I thought were the hardest in the first 4 weeks… are now in the warm-up. Yeah. It’s that hard. I wear out so much faster in this new month!
B.    The length of the workout is (almost overwhelmingly) longer. Shaun T has added 20 minutes to the main workout. So, it’s basically doubled. And when you’re like me and taking breaks during the crazy-intense new warm up… you’re scared you won’t make it through the hour!
But I also know there were many moves in Month 1 that I found nearly impossible at first… and then got better at them as the month went on. I’m hoping that will be the case with Month 2 as well. And as far as the length of the workout goes, hopefully I’ll get over that too. One hour should be no big deal, right? Right. That’s what I’m going to have to keep telling myself.
I do know I have to step up my game in this final month. I WANT to master these moves. I want to take my fitness level to a whole new level. I want all of those things. So I guess I’ll just have to take Shaun T’s advice. I’ve gotta “Dig Deeper.”
