“I am going to kick your butt today and I am not even playing”
Those are the words said by Shaun T within seconds of starting day 1 of month 2. I quickly realize that he is truly not playing. I suffer through the next hour in pain. Barely managing to complete it. The warm up alone left me gasping for breath and begging for a break. It didn’t help that I’d spent the 20 min before doing the Fit Test.
I struggle for a way to describe just how painful month 2 of Insanity is. The word hard seems puny in comparison to the pain you’re left feeling. I truly felt like I’d never worked out before in my entire life. As if I’d spent the last 2 years perfecting my couch potato technique. I kept trying to remind myself of the miles I’d run over the years, the conditioning my body had gone through then and the soreness I felt after the workouts in month 1. But that didn’t help. Those things were all a joke compared to what I was trying to do now. Where were all the muscles I’d built? Apparently, I had none.
Month 2 is seriously the hardest thing my body has ever had to do. At this point, we’ve done all the workouts so there’s no surprises left which is partly a good thing and partly bad. I won’t be shocked when Shaun instructs me to do some crazy new move but then again, I know the pain that is to come. 2.5 weeks left
