I’ve decided to move my blog posts to a new home, for both Juneathon and Janathon. If you’re bored and want to read you can find more articles here…


Day 2 of Juneathon is day 8 of my Insanity madness.

My arms and legs are trembling as I type this post, while drinking my recovery formula – a cheap orange tasting drink that actually helps in stopping my legs and feet hurting the next day. This stuff, from Maximuscle, is a bit like drinking a large Lemsip or Rennie Resolve in that all the dusty crap settles at the bottom of the glass… nice!

Anyway, today was Insanity’s Pure Cardio disc, the one that I hate the most. It starts as normal with the 10 minute warmup, which I’m sure is actually enough of a workout in itself. While the other DVD’s follow this up with interval training, 4 or 5 exercises followed by a nice 30 second break, in this disc Shaun T just says “Fuck It! ya’ll not getting a break!” and you have to work through for the next 20 minutes or so. Well, the super bods on the DVD do, by about half way through, I guess I’m doing about 60% of each exercise and by the last 20%, I’m probably doing less than a quarter of each minute.

Here’s a video review from someone who knows what they are talking about:

This is the DVD to measure myself against. I guess when I can do this all the way through I might have some level of fitness.

Oh bugger, just looking at the calendar, I’ve got this work out in 4 days with an ab workout on the same day… great 😦

Right Juneathoners, I’m going to cry in a corner now.
