Just for “fun,” I decided to take the Insanity fit test today to see how I compared to the last time. I’ve only done the Insanity Fit Test once before at the beginning of my second Round effort, when I was introducing Insanity into the mix. As I recall, I was pretty exhaused after that first attempt. And I can say this second attempt left me possibly more winded than before. I wore my Heart Rate Monitor to measure myself throughout the fit test, and because my heart rate was peaking at very high levels, I took breaks between moves until my heart rate retreated back into the 130s. Over all, my results were better than my first attempt, sometimes significantly. But it’s hard to imagine going at it harder than I did today. I felt at times that my heart was in my mouth.
