Recovery week it over! In the begging I was happy to have a break from the intense workout but by Thursday I wanted it to be over. It started to get boring because it’s the same video every day. By the fourth day of doing the same thing, I was sick of it, but I had to finish it.
This week was easy, it was recovery from the very demanding and intense first month of Insanity. It’s not supposed to be difficult or exhausting, you have to work still have to work, but not as hard as you usually do. I thought I was doing just that, I wasn’t even doing any other exercise. This week was supposed to be my recovery week.
I must have done something wrong because now my knee hurts and I have no idea what I did because I don’t remember it starting to hurt at any point during the workout. Today I decided to modify the moves so it wouldn’t hurt, so while I did the video, it wasn’t exactly the same thing they were doing.
I think I’m going to need a recovery week from the recovery week because I can’t n start month two like this. If I do, it’s only going to make it worse so if it still hurts on Monday, after my rest day tomorrow, I might take a break from Insanity this week and do something easy and rest until my knee feels better.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
