INSANITY Workout any CP Insanity veterans in here??

So my daughter says to me the other day. Hey Dad, you said you were going to get back to working again right? Lets buy Insanity and do it together. So I said (having no friggin idea what Insanity IS). Sure. Sounds great.
Well now Im doing some research on it and Im actually a little sick to my stomach. Shes a 6 foot solid muscled 18 year old (that somehow thinks shes out of shape.women!) and Im a 6 foot 250 lb 46 year old for Gods sake! I mean.Im not a blob or anything. Im pretty active....OK fairly active. I can still bust some moves on a basketball court..I just gotta play the half court game now you know? I hit the treadmill from time to time. But for crying out loud what Im reading about this workout is scaring the crap outta me! Im really not sure Ill be able to do this. Anyone went through this thing? This frigging workout is gonna show up in the mail any day now andgulp..Im a-scairt!

But yeah, there is literally no way to go but up from here.
I'm still struggling a little with a shoulder tweak. planning on starting all over again Monday. I will absolutely be pausing the dvd to get more than 30 seconds of rest. I can't recover in that short amount of time, Shawn T says it's important to recover, so this go round I will be recovering. I figure I'll stretch 30 seconds to 45 maybe 60 if needed. my heart rate needs to come down, Shawn T says so, when I'm OVER my max and sit down for a measly 30 seconds....my heart rate is still crazy high. also....I really need to NOT get my heart rate over my max, which means the first month I was actually pushing myself too hard! right? just had a physical and asked my doc about this and he completely agrees that going over your max heart rate is worthless and does nothing to help your fitness. so this is how I'm going to approach it this time. BUT....I cannot decide what to do about the damn fit test.....to pause....or not to pause....that damn thing almost kills me every time.

Don't pause the fit test. You're not after cardio.

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.

I use these.

My recommendation is not to get anything that restricts motion much. I had some shoes that were "stability" type running shoes. I think they restricted my motion too much and really tore up my plantar faciitis. It is better with the above shoes.

I want to see someone who is for sure in shape do the fitness test for the first time. I'm sure it would be hard as hell for them too. I'm not terribly out of shape and that thing whipped my ass.

First thing that popped into my head was "I won't have 60 straight days at home to do this until late July, so I should just wait and buy it then."

But, **** it. I'm going to get it, work out while I'm at home until I have the full 60 days to do it and start again.

I know you are suppose to follow the work out but you don't necessarily have to. I have incorporated it into my own workout. I use the ab work out for my abs all the time but that is the only one I use consistently. If you are not going to be around just make sure you do some sort of work out. Don't necessarily have to follow his schedule.

I'm going to be out of town basically 3 weeks out of the next 2 months, which means I just have to make myself do some sort of workout while on the road.

Good plan... that tripped me up when I first started p90x, since it's 6-7 days/week and the workouts are 60-90 minutes each. It was all or nothing, and one skipped day would turn into 3 or 4 just so I could start over on the right day. I basically had to stop thinking of it like I simply needed to get through the 90 days and then I'd be done with it. I try to do something everyday, even if it's just 20-30 minutes, and don't worry about skipping days.

Exactly. I think the most important part of this for me is that I'm doing something....anything. I'm definitely not overweight, but this beer belly is starting to drive me up the wall.

Tried walking/running for awhile. But, never could find a time where both the wife & I could get out to do it because never had a sitter for the kids...so I kind of gave up and let her continue on while I stayed home. I figure I can get an hour a day for this, while the kids run around me screaming "Dad....your belly is big."

Yeah.....almost 2 months later....I should be done with this....and I never really got started. ****ing motivation.

Now that the election is over.....I'll finally have time. I'm going to stop doing what other people have been doing and trying to get back on a schedule by skipping days. If I miss a day....I'll just continue on with the schedule and do my workout for the next day.

I'm fat.
