Insanity Day 4 – 10:32 – Seeing results

Tonight’s workout was Tabata Power again. Last time I did this workout I felt a little guilty afterwards.

Along with the regular evil moves there’s a modifier move. An easier, low impact version. Last time is switched to using that quite early on. This time I was determined not to use it until after I’d maxed out.

I maxed out at 10 minutes 32 seconds

I’m delighted with that. I pushed myself to the limit, as usual though my arms failed me. The push ups were too much. But I managed more than before. Crazy considering how few days it’s been.

I’m already seeing some results though. I have an “anterior tilt” I think it’s called. My pelvis is rotated forward too far and the curve of my spine is overly pronounced. It makes standing up for any length of time painful and I can’t walk for as long as before. I’ve got exercises from my physiotherapist to keep my core muscles tight and support my pelvis, keeping it where it should be. But I tend to forget about them till the hurts. Oops!

Later in the day is when its worst, walking home from work especially. I noticed today though, I was powering home through the snow at a fair speed, and it didn’t hurt. I was standing upright instead of the strange crumpled walk I normally end up with.

I’m standing straighter. It’s just proof that my core muscles are tightening already, I’m delighted.

I’m already getting excited about the first set of photos and measurements at Day 30, halfway!

Getting impatient waiting for the Charge HR UK release day. Hurry up already! Haha!
