P90X: Day Four

Posted on

Just to be clear, the day number correlates with the # of times I’ve actually DONE P90X. I haven’t been doing it every day, obviously, so… ya.

Anyway, today was Yoga X. It brought me to tears. Of boredom. For the first half anyway. Seriously… the first half is SO repetitive… “Now, down to plank, now to chataranga, and back to plank, now downward dog, lift the left heel to the sky, and swing it through to runners pose. Now, fingertips to the floor, and up to warrior one.” I am going to mute it next time I have to do Yoga X so I never have to hear those words again.

That said, it was a tough workout. Being the putz that I am, I wish they did the balance poses first so I could establish some sense of calm and balance before doing all the ones that required moving AND balancing. Although, the balance poses at the end was a nice way to wind down. Turns out I wish they did balance poses before AND after the repetitive vinyasa stuff.

Overall, I felt pretty good after and most importantly, it was a nice way to start the day off. I really focused on clearing my mind of what I had to do for the rest of the day and I actually found myself to be really productive once I was done the workout. The fruits of today’s Yoga X induced labour will soon be seen at www.sharman.ca; in the mean time just go check out that site – Duane is a pretty awesome guy!

Well, it’s almost time for bed and Pirates of the Caribbean is on. Goodnight!

P90X: Day 3

Posted on

I did it. I actually survived ‘Arms & Shoulders and Ab Ripper X’.

80 minutes of grueling activity. Actually, it wasn’t as bas as I had anticipated but it was still intense! . I thought it was for SURE going to involve pull-ups but it didn’t. I did, however,  learn that my triceps are so incredibly weak… moreso than I thought possible. My arms and abs are also now killing me so next up on the list for the night is a bath and then bed. I fear that sitting up out of bed tomorrow will be a miserable experience but as they say, “No Pain, No Gain.”

Tomorrow I’m getting my hair cut. I’m nervous about that but maybe if it turns out nice and if you’re all good boys and girls I’ll post a picture of the new me.

Sweet dreams.
