Workout Wednesday

My morning workout partner has re-started P90X. She's doing the full workout - not just the weightlifting, so tomorrow I'm headed over to her house for P90X yoga. I'm a little intimidated. It's an hour and a half and full of planks, I'm told. Yay. Planks. woooo.

Monday we did the back and shoulders workout twice and followed it up with abs. 120 push ups, 80 pull ups, and too many ab reps to count.

In a word? Ooooouch. But in a good way.

On the cardio front, I've been paying more attention to the way I run - well run is a bit of a stretch, actually. Let's say trog. Part trot, part jog. And I have to give credit where credit is due - when I use better form and use my legs to push myself forward versus trying to stretch my legs out for a larger stride but end up having to pull myself forward, trogging gets a whole lot easier. And my knees and ankles don't hurt. I'd still rather run with the kids at basketball practice (this week none of them beat me...haha!) because it's more fun than plodding along on a track or treadmill, so with the improvements in weather, maybe it's time to take the trog outside.

Can't wait to let you know how the yoga went ::eye roll::

P90X is brutal, my friend. The only "workout" I enjoyed from that program was the stretching one. Good luck!

Good for you!!

I LOOVVEE yoga, so I may have to check out that crazy workout you're doing! How'd it go??

I can't wait until this crap weather is gone and I can head back to a gym without worry that we'll leave with some exotic disease we got from a snot-faced kid. You know military gyms! ;-)
