I finally got around to taking the Insanity Fit Test today and actually writing down my results. The result? I’m horribly unfit. What? Oh, you want all the gory details? OK.
Here are my results for 4/21/2011 (keeping in mind my sore hip socket/groin):
Switch kicks: 80 (I’m pretty awesome)
Power Jacks: 30 (still doing good)
Power Knees: 60 (not bad, not bad)
Power Jumps: 14 (uh-oh)
Globe Jumps: 5 (ooh…but in my defense, there are four jumps in a rotation, so it’s more like 20)
Suicide jumps: 10 (come on, 2blu– you can do better than that)
Push Up Jacks: 4 (*hanging my head in shame)
Low Plank Obliques: 25 (surprised I had anything left in the tank
You have to see how many of each you can do in one minute, so really this is, aside from warm up and cool down, ten minutes or so of high intensity cardio–and I’m dead (or I would be if my hip would just let me die; its throbbing lets me know I’m still alive). I’m pouring sweat and guzzing water. There’s no way I’d make it thorugh an actual Insanity workout. Whew! I never sweat like this! It’s gross. 😦 I want a shower. In fact, I’m having a shower…as soon as I can move.
I found a journal post of mine on another site where I was complaining about being 111 pounds… O_O <<<my face when I read that. Umm, I would do some things I’m ashamed to admit to be that little. Sad part? I was 115 when I met MensHealth in person the first time–3 and a quarter years ago. That’s not that long ago. I was 22/23. What the fuss? Now I’m hover around 140. The.Madness.Must.Stop. Even if I have to fight madness with Insanity.
