Seeing that I am going on a vaction Skiing in Colorado in 2 days, recovery is just what the doctor ordered. Gives my body a chance to heal up before I punish it with 4 straight days of downhill thrashing. Because I only ski a couple of times a year, my legs usually get pretty sore after the first day or two. It will be interesting to see how I feel this year seeing that I have completed the P90X workout and will have 20 days of the Insanity workout under my belt before I hit the slopes. I have the Insanity workouts on my Ipod, so if I have any energy left in the evenings I will be doing the workouts as well.
When I get back from Vacation, the Insanity schedule is set for Recovery Week. It looks like Core Cardio and Recovery for 5 straight days. That is followed by the final 4 weeks of the workout at MAX level… yikes. I am planning on going more towards a low-carb diet the final 4 weeks. (currently I have been keeping at a 45% Carbs, 35%Protein and 20% fat ratio) By sticking to a “real” low carb diet for 4 weeks (50%Protein, 30%Carbs and 20% fat) combined with Insanity Max workouts should lead to six pack city. I have been stuck on a 4-pack since finishing P90X, and my diet has kind of been a little more Hot Wings with beer instead of Grilled Chicken Breast with skim milk.
Anyways, it is off to the slopes….
