I did Insanity to get in shape for running. When I completed Insanity I thought I would rock my running. WRONG.

While my cardio was where it should have been, the muscle movements for running certainly are not in condition from doing Insanity. It took a week or so of very light run/walking to gradually re-condition my body for a run.

I'm a month removed from the Insanity and I just went on a 8-mile run the other day. Didn't breath hard through the whole run and felt great afterwards. No way I would have thought I'd be at this point so early. So the Insanity DID help in terms of weight loss/conditioning. I just had to gradually get my body used to the mechanics/pounding of a run.

I'm sure if I were to start Insanity over again, even a month removed, I'd be huffing and struggling again, but I'd be starting from a different place.
