If no other night did it, this is the night that made Insanity earn its name. After the warm-up there was only one 30-second water break! I’m sure those of you who have already done the program knew that, but it was a shock to me. Even MORE shocking was the fact that I could keep up with the workout easier when Shaun T INCREASED the speed. In the beginning when they are going more “moderate,” I found it harder to keep the pace with them. Maybe that’s because when we went faster, I didn’t have the time to think about how much pain I was in! At any rate, I think I am finally starting to get into the groove with this workout. The last four days, I was unsure if I’d be able to do it. That’s what I get for going from P90X to Turbo Jam. Well, now that I have both P90X AND Insanity, I’m never dropping down to a routine that is less strenuous.
Some good news on the writing front today: a magazine called Nocturnal Lyric will be publishing my short story “Sounds of Horror” in their November issue! On top of that I am still plugging away at the zombie epic. I am currently writing part 3 (out of a planned 5), and it is proving to be just as much of a monster as the zombies that are in it. After one more day of writing, I am going to crack page 600!!! Yes, you read that right! Not only that, but I am only about 70% done with the plot points that I planned to include in this section. I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes over 800 pages…or maybe even nears 1,000! We’ll see.
