I am surprisingly enough not that much bothered by the heat. Even though it’s very close to 40 degrees Celsius daily here.
I am using a monster of a portable fan and have it blow on me full speed while doing Insanity. In any other case I would probably end up with a full blown pneumonia while trying to pull something like this in any other climate but here it basically just moves the air around without really cooling me down. At least it gives me the impression of being able to breath easier.
It’s nice to be able to workout inside. No crowds, no waiting times for machines and a very stable temperature. Today is my first rest day and I am now officially one week into Insanity. Henning mentioned that he sometimes fears I am going to die when he hears me wheezing like crazy from where he is. He also learned quite fast to not address me while I am doing the workouts. It’s healthier for him if I direct my pissed-off-ness during the workout towards Shaun instead of him..
On Saturday Henning actually managed the heroic task of working out outside on the balcony in the burning heat. I still wonder how he managed without just dropping dead. He is however still suffering from his curl marathon with major DOMS.
