When not to exercise…

I got injured at soccer last week, tweaked my knee so it’s now swollen and making it pretty unstable.  My first concern was how will I keep the Insanity Max:30 workouts going with the knee.  It would have been very easy to stop the program, everyone would have understood that my knee was sore and that I […]

“I do not suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe As the title of this blog explains I’m always in search of a new challenge.  So as soon as I heard of Beachbody‘s new Insanity workout, I couldn’t say no to Shaun T.  Having finished P90X, Insanity and Asylum, […]

“The finish line is just the beginning of a whole new race.” ~ Unknown Today was my last Asylum workout!  I have to admit that the last week has been the most challenging of all, maybe because the holidays are close and my schedule is busier, maybe because the end was so close that I […]
