Week 7, Day 1 - Couch to 5K

Ran the full 27 minutes straight this time.  A little slower than last weeks 25 minute run, but I probably ran for the same distance, just slower.  It was a good run and I didn't even listen to the podcast.  Just put on my watch and headed outside.  During these past few weeks, I've come to appreciate my daughter waking up early (usually between 5:30 and 6:30) since I do not need an alarm clock to get up and I figure I might as well go out for a run if I'm up this early.

As for future endeavors...Has anyone with PD done one of the beach body exercise programs (P90X, Insanity, ....)  I am wondering because core strength, balance and agility are all important factors in maintaining your well being, especially with Parkinsons, and it seems some of these workout programs focus on those aspects (especially Insanity, from what I've seen and read online).  My worry is that the workouts are too intense and will get my tremor going at 100 mph and I won't be able to recover and go on with the rest of my day.
