Stepping up the game

Happy New Year! I hope 2013 started off well for you. For me, it's been kinda hectic, but sometimes I think that is the only way I know how to function. Anyway, just like I said on my other blog, one of my resolutions is to make more me time. In the me time, I have included blogging, so hopefully there will be some more of that.  Another one of my resolutions is to run more half marathons this year, but let's not jump to that one just yet.  The first thing that I knew I wanted to do was tackle Insanity. Yes, I am still doing it, and yes it is still hard. However, I realized quickly that my running shoes weren't going to cut it as cross trainers, and I began to do the workouts barefoot. (A bad idea with DJD and a neuroma) so I looked painstakingly hard, to find the perfect cross trainer. Thanks to a coupon I got from DSW for my birthday, I found these beauties...
All I know about these shoes are that they are New Balance Training, and the tops of the shoes have a lot of give, which is good for my fat feet. They are super comfy and they are so much better than doing Insanity bare foot. I am going to try them out without socks, and I will let you know what the verdict is.  I liked the sticker that was inside the box...
I really have no idea what this is referring too, but I felt like it spoke to me since I try to do most of my Insanity workouts as a wake up. It is also a wake up for me to finally get serious about this whole cross training business.
Also, here are my Insanity results. if anything, I learned how much stronger I am getting even with being inconsistent, but makes me want to see how consistency will pay off.
And finally, one last picture. It is way past my bed time, but I thought I would share this. It is fitness related (kinda). It made me chuckle and I hope it makes you as well.

Good night my pirate mateys! I hope you have had a fantastic week so far! Here's to more pirate adventures!

  1. Claudio,
    Thanks for stopping by! I would love to use an exercise machine, but my life does not allow time for the gym. That is why I am constantly looking for good at home workouts. Right now my foot doesn't allow for much Insanity :( but hopefully I will find out today in Therapy what is going on. Have a great Wednesday!
