Today is a rest day from the grimed of 5-3-1 Insanity. I am thankful for the chance to rest. After yesterday's quad-focused workout my legs are toast.
After waking up early this morning for a hockey game in Oxnard, California, I immediately felt the DOMS in my quads. The soreness is both a blessing and a curse. I can tell that my legs got a great workout, but I am completely drained. This is because I am leaving it all on the gym floor. At the same time, my cardio is at an all-time high because of Insanity.
At times I wonder if my body will be able to recover. I am watching recovery very carefully. I have a Plan B if I am not recovering and I'm reasonably certain it will work.
This time through Insanity I am very focused on keeping my core tight at all times. Insaw a big increase in core strength the first cycle of Insanity, so further focus on this area should just bring better results.
