P90X Day 44

I strained my lower back at soccer practice last night so I didn't want to get out of bed this morning and workout. It felt a lot better when I got home from work this evening and Doone hadn't made it to the gym today so we did Plyometrics together. It is way more fun to do with her.

P90X Day 45-- Halfway there!

I couldn't get my mind into my workout this morning and so didn't workout quite as hard as usual. Today was supposed to be Back and Biceps, but since I think I'm going to do a local 5K on Saturday and Friday was supposed to be Legs and Back, I switched today and Friday this week and did Legs and Back today.  When I did that plunge and run a couple weeks ago, I did Legs and Back the day before and had pretty sore legs when I got up that morning.

P90X Day 47

I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I can tell it is about time for a recovery week which is next week.  After finally dragging myself out of bed I didn't have time for the full prescribed Back and Biceps followed by ABs, so I did Abs then followed that with 3 sets of pullups and 3 sets of curls.  That will have to do for today and since it is the first time I've cheated a workout in 47 days I shouldn't be too bummed I guess.  

Tomorrow I think I'm going to do a 5K.  We'll see how well all this P90X does to help with running. I'm guessing it won't be pretty, probably somewhere just under 21:00.

P90X Day 48

I skipped Kempo today for a local 5K fund raisers for the high school cross country team.  I am not trained for running but I wanted to support the cross country team so I showed up, paid my $25 and toed the line.  The race was on a local golf course which was kind of fun, but challenging with all the sandy spots, sharp turns, and hills.  I went out at a conservative pace and settled into a nice groove by mile 1. About 2 1/2 miles into the race I was running with one other guy who looked like he was about 20 years old.  We were in 6th and 7th place.  I was ahead, but right before mile 3 he passed me.  I just hung on. He had about 10 yards on me coming into the final turn with about 200m go. Even though I was hurting, I decided to go for it.  I caught up to him and he kicked as hard as he could we were both in a full sprint. I knew I was faster than him if I could just endure the pain.  With about 30 yards to go he quit and I sprinted in for the 6th place finish and 1st in my AG.
