Sweet! The Insanity workouts are doing their job! I was worried that since I was getting closer to my goal weight, weight loss would slow down. But high intensity interval training is still burning the fat off me. I can run 10 miles, but I get totally winded during the Insanity warm-up and I take lots of breaks. Oh well, I act like I can finish and eventually I will.
Knee pain came back so I bought a new pair of Asics for long runs and a new pair of orthotics for my Adidas for the short runs. You’re supposed to replace your shoes after 300-500 miles. I only got about 250 miles out of the Adidas, but I supinate severely (#science) and I’m considered a Clydesdale (#judgmental), so I wore the shoes out. I’ll still try to get a little more time out of them by using them for short runs only with the orthotics.
What else have I bought recently? Only my I’m-a-healthy-weight-yayy Guitar! I call her Toca. I made it a to healthy weight of 168 mid-December, but I was waiting for a good after-Christmas sale (#cheap). I can play absolutely nothing, but I have an awesome Jimi Hendrix t-shirt, so I look the part. “Fake it ‘til you make it.” Works for Insanity. Works for music.
