Taking a break from the Insanity... Asylum..

I've been thinking a lot about priorities. More specifically, whether my current priorities are reflected in my daily activity.

So, when I wake up in the morning and feel like I need to stay home because I don't feel well, it gives me a chance to reevaluate my priorities and activities.

Today, I decided to stay home. I just wasn't feeling right.

And I've decided that I'm going to stop doing Insanity: The Asylum, at least the 30 day program... for the moment.

I think it's a great program, but right now, my priorities are:
- Running
- Losing the last 10 pounds
- Toning up

I'm finding that I'm too tired to run on the days I do Asylum workouts. I'm finding that I desperately dread the 2 workouts, Speed and Agility and Vertical Plyo. I feel like I'm not getting enough strength work.

So I'm going to do something different, with the primary goal being to run a good half marathon on September 24.

More to come...

If you don't feel that Insanity is helping you achieve the goals you want then you are right to take a break. Insanity may just be a fad, like Zumba. At the end of the day you can always rely on the classics such as lifting weights and running.

when you feel like you need a break you should take one. I need to follow my own advice.
