My friend brought in the Insanity DVDs for me to borrow. I am pretty pumped about it!
Running is definitely a different type of workout compared to Insanity, P90x, and general lifting. I know my body will feel much different after these workouts and I’m going to still miss the way I feel after a good long run, but I’m kind of excited about getting more tone and a different level of fitness!
