It’s hump day here on day 17 of Insanity Max 30 and I’m have to admit I have really been struggling over the last few days. Insanity, Asylum and Insanity Max 30 are no walks in the part and pretty much every workout is relentless on the body. I’ve been beating my previous Max Out time each day but it’s really wearing me down this week. I don’t think I have this much soreness from any of my previous workout programs. Maybe that’s due to me pushing myself out of my comfort zone trying to beat my Max Out Time each and every day. In the battle against myself I’m winning but man am I sore!
Day 17 Sweat Intervals
After the day I had yesterday I was really anxious for today’s workout. Was I going to have enough steam to beat my Max out time, was I going to be able to finish the workout and was I even going to be able to move. I woke up this morning extremely sore and just felt worn down. By the time I pushed play I was going to give it my all to “hopefully” beat my previous Max Out time of 13:00 minutes. There is a lot more squatting in this workout than I remember and my legs were already toast. I was proud to able to push myself and up my max out time to 21:00, but just ran out of steam again with about 4 minutes left in the workout, so I skipped ahead to the stretch. I’m hoping this is just a phase I’m going through because I know I won’t be able to complete the entire Insanity Max 30 program with everyday being like the last few. Especially when the Month 2 workouts hit!

Day 17 Sweat Intervals Nutrition
I had the chance to try another new recipe for dinner on day 17. I tried the Italian Turkey Quinoa Meatball recipe from FitMenCook.com. They came out amazing and had enough left overs for the next few days. I posted a link to the recipe below. The rest of my day’s nutrition was “as usual”. Shakeology continues to be my post workout shake and this far in the program that has worked very well for me, but being as sore as I have been these last few days it might be time to start taking the Results and Recovery formula. Stay tuned.
Breakfast: 2 egg omelette with goat cheese, whole grain toast topped with strawberry preserves, and a banana.
Lunch: Tex Mex Spring rolls
Snack: Quest Bar and greek yogurt
