I really blew it this morning! I woke up and my hip and groin were giving me some problems and I caved and didn't do any workout at all! So I'm feeling like a loser! If I have time I might do something when I get home, but I don't know, I just can't seem to get this darn thing to heal up so I'm a little frustrated!

Okay enough of my pity party back to work!

PM- I went outside and ran 4 easy, easy, miles I ran the old blue mailbox route toward Payson, average pace was 9:25 total time 38:00, like I said real easy! I then came back home and did 22 minutes on the elliptical at a moderate to hard pace  for a total time between the two of 60 minutes. I then did the P90X back and chest workout, which lasts about 50 minutes and it pretty much kicked my butt, thats probably worth 1 cross training mile but I won't count it... My hip was marginal for the run, I will have to see how it is tomorrow morning and then go from there, if the pain is to much then I will hit the elliptical, I think I need to let go of my ego for awhile!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to the Stake Center and back, hip was really bothering me, I then came back home and did 40 minutes on the elliptical, hip felt better... I finished up with some lower body weight training including some squats and then some stretching. I think once my hip gets warmed up it seems to do better, but the problem with starting out running is I don't think it gets warmed up properly so the pain is more noticeable... I think when I ran yesterday afternoon it was warmed up from the days activities and so it just did better, but not today. Oh well, at least I was able to get in 52 minutes between the two workouts so thats better than nothing;-D I will keep plugging away hoping for the best...

See ya tomorrow.

Hit the elliptical for 45 minutes and thats about it. I did get to play golf today, had to drive to delta to make it happen but it was worth it!

See ya tomorrow.

66 minutes on the elliptical and then upper body workout, I slept in this morning so I did it after I got home from work... I wanted to run outside today real bad but I stuck with the elliptical as my hip is now where near healed up enough to run on so I stayed with the cross training. Pace on the elliptical was moderate to hard with some intervals thrown in and thats about it...

See ya tomorrow

Boy my legs were totally wiped out this morning, they just wouldn't go! I have been fighting off a cold for the last few days so maybe that is whats causing the extra fatigue... I did get 65 minutes in on the elliptical even though I was feeling pretty lousy and dealing with the wobbly legs, I then finished up with some core training and Push-ups. Thats about it, I know same old story and its getting pretty freaking boring for me too, but I'm hanging in there.

See ya tomorrow.

66 minutes on the elliptical with some resistance and some intervals thrown in there for good measure, I then did some upper body and lower body weight training to finish up... Hip was about the same maybe a little better than it has been in the last few weeks, so some improvement. I had to workout this afternoon as I had basketball games in the morning, and I have come down with a little cold so I tried to get some extra rest this morning, but I still feel like crap! I think I will go and try and take a nap;-)

See ya Monday.
