I went ahead and popped an Insanity dvd in the tv this morning. It’s been about 2 months since I did that, and over a year since I’ve done the workouts consistently…It sucked.
But I noticed something on this particular dvd that I had never heard before. During the very last few minutes of the workout Shaun T asks a dude “You run marathons don’t ya?” The guy mumbles a response that resembles a “yeah”. Then Shaun T says “How does this compare?!” The guy makes a face (he is still in the middle of completing the exercise) and mumbles some incomprehensible answer leading everyone to assume that insanity is, in fact, more difficult than a marathon.
Hmmm…Agree to disagree. Even the speediest marathoners are performing for 4X the time that a 35 minute insanity dvd takes (5 of which are stretching, not to mention all the 30 second rests, but I digress…). It took me 4 and 1/2 hours to run a marathon! I’ll take 30 minutes of pain any day!! I guess I can’t really blame the guy though, I probably wouldn’t argue with Shaun T either.
That is all… Have a lovely weekend!
