Ouch. Somewhere in between all that squatting, thrusting and mad crazy leaping into the air plyometric stuff, my back has decided to complain. Loudly. One week of Insanity and I’m already injured!
At the end of last week, I reluctantly decided to stop exercising. I’d pulled something at the top of my inner thigh/groin, and my back was starting to grumble about five days of intense back-to-back workouts.
Today, my back is still stiff and sore. Part of me is tempted to do a Plyometric Cardio routine and see if this loosens things up. It probably won’t, though, meaning a few days of Ibuprofen and frustration about breaking the flow of the Insanity programme.
Which brings me to my question for you guys: When I’m fit enough to exercise again, do I
- Restart the Insanity programme from scratch, or
- Simply pick it up again from where I left off?
Restarting the programme gives me the benefit of doing all Insanity in one block. Presumably there are important benefits to following the full 60-day programme? Picking it up from where I left off would mean less to do, which means I’d finish Insanity quicker.
Which would you do?
