    Thanks Lefty... now I just gotta be a machine at maintaining ;)

    Last day of week 3 of Insanity
    Plyometric Cardio Circuit (40 min)...
    1 (<140 bpm) = 29%
    2 (141-150) = 11%
    3 (151-160) = 16%
    4 (161-180) = 42%
    5 (181+) = 1%

    Avg = 145 Max = 185

    My feet, knees, hip flexors, and calves (pretty much all of my legs) are sore as hell from this damn Insanity. I don't seem to be able to recover enough. Next week is a full week then a recovery week!

    Ibuprofin or tylenol will help in the short run. A week off for recovery should be good in the long run.

    Got tired of sitting in my hotel room waiting for the laundry to finish, so I decided that right now would be a good time to start week 4 of the C25K

    Running:
    0:29:00 || 2.6 mi || 11:13.1 min/mi || 151 bpm (+221 pts)

    I totally had no interest in working out tonight... tried to come up with every excuse I could think of... but alas, I had a "suck it up cupcake" moment and got my Insanity workout in - then went for a run immediately after! Take that excuse making voice :neener:! And I cut a minute off of the same course I ran on Sunday :D

    Running: (C25K - Week 4, Day 2)
    0:28:00 || 2.6 mi || 10:38.8 min/mi || 157 bpm (+242 pts)
    http://runkeeper.com/user/314187308/activity/99069665
    1 (<140 bpm) = 22%
    2 (141-150) = 10%
    3 (151-160) = 11%
    4 (161-180) = 46%
    5 (181+) = 10%

    Avg = 157 Max = 188


    Insanity - Cardio Power & Resistance - Week 4, Day 2
    1 (<140 bpm) = 26%
    2 (141-150) = 12%
    3 (151-160) = 14%
    4 (161-180) = 46%
    5 (181+) = 1%

    Avg = 148 Max = 182

    And another day of not wanting to workout but pushing thru it anyway.

    Insanity - Plyometric Cardio Circuit - Week 4, Day 3
    1 (<140 bpm) = 28%
    2 (141-150) = 14%
    3 (151-160) = 23%
    4 (161-180) = 34%
    5 (181+) = 0%

    Avg = 144 Max = 180

    Heart rate is lower than in past workouts... can't push as hard because my legs and feet are so sore

    Time for some time off... my leg soreness continues and is a bit worse. So I've decided that I'm going to take a few days... keep the diet good, but no exercise for a bit. Still holding at 2.5" lost

    ahhhhh... 4 days off were just what the Dr ordered! I feel so much better. Now, 18 days left in Germany - time for the final push! My goal was to get my waist down into the 35s. I was holding at 36.5" just before the off time... I'm sure it's gone up a little due to all of the off eating I've been doing too :whistle:

    Today's workout...

    Insanity - Pure Cardio followed by Cardio Abs
    55 min total
    1 (<140 bpm) = 45%
    2 (141-150) = 6%
    3 (151-160) = 13%
    4 (161-180) = 34%
    5 (181+) = 1%

    Avg = 139 Max = 189


    followed by

    Running: Couch to 5k - Week 5 / Day 1
    0:37:37.9 || 3.2 mi || 11:34.9 min/mi (+279 pts)
    http://runkeeper.com/user/314187308/activity/100700557

    1 (<140 bpm) = 39%
    2 (141-150) = 9%
    3 (151-160) = 9%
    4 (161-180) = 42%
    5 (181+) = 0%

    Avg = 145 Max = 179

    (I went to far on the outward part, so I ended up walking an extra 5 minutes at the end to get back to the hotel)

    Missed my workout and running yesterday... was in a design review meeting at work that lasted until 7PM :(

    Might miss today too, depending on when today's meeting ends... then I have a 3 hour drive back to Sindelfingen. Luckily, it stays daylight in Germany until after 10PM right now, so I might be able to get the run in when I get back. If not I guess it will wait til tomorrow

    Can't you run in the dark? Although 10 pm is kind of late to be out running.

    Insanity - Core Cardio & Balance - 37 minutes


    Running: Couch to 5k - week 5 / day 2
    0:27:45 || 2.6 mi || 10:35.1 min/mi || 150 bpm (+243 pts)
    http://runkeeper.com/user/314187308/activity/101625089

    1 (30-136bpm) = 30%
    2 (137-146) = 2%
    3 (147-156) = 6%
    4 (157-175) = 45%
    5 (176+) = 16%
    avg = 150 / max = 182
    (based on the max numbers I've been seeing, I dropped my max heart rate setting from 200 down to 195 - so the zones are a bit different)
