My SIL brought us the P90X yesterday. I am so excited, but not quite ready to start it just yet, because I am still training pretty hard with the running.
I am really excited about the running too, I did a 10K run on Saturday morning in 66 minutes. That is a fantastic time since this was the first time I ran the whole thing, no slowing down, no walking, just a steady pace to finish in great time. Running is becoming my passion and my gut keeps nagging me to go for a half-marathon, why I don't know. Well I guess I do know, I thought I could never run a 5K or a 10K, but since I am slowing proving that anything is possible, I might just do a half - I'm thinking really hard about it. That would be so great to be able to accomplish that. So for now, my committment is to running, but I am so excited about P90X.
One of my SP buddies is totally rocking the P90X and has really inspired me to try it and my SIL completed it, so I ask myself... Can I do P90X too? Hmmmm, I really want to, just have to work out the logistics of fitting it in to my running schedule, it also means I would have to give up my kickboxing class for a while too. I am going to preview it tonight and we will see if it really SPARKS me to get into it. I am totally in the frame of mind "that anything is possible", "I CAN". I don't like to think that there is something out there that I can't do, so I am really looking for a challenge and I'm thinking P90X is where it's at.
I will let everyone know what I decide. What do you think?

I am so glad you are back in action. Can you please consider making football an all year sport? I've had to suffer 8 months without you. Gonna be glued to the TV from now untill Superbowl. Want to see some action with my number one dude #43 Troy Polamalu.

Look out there LT Dan, the Z sisters busted out a 6.5 miler this morning in record time, woot woot. We were going so fast we had flames coming off of the back of our shoes, like we had been strapped to a launching rocket. WOOT WOOT. It's all good. We had fun and we ran the entire way, no walking and no slacking.
Can't wait for our race in two weeks, be ready.
OOOPS, I almost forgort - lost another pound this week, I am so excited, only 9 more to go.

Today is just one of those blah days, really super super super busy at work and not getting a lot accomplished. Not enough hours in the day. Very frustrating. One a good note....
High school football game tonight and enough calories to have a ballpark hot dog - yeah.
Can't wait until 5:00 quitting time, it can't come fast enough. Gonna be a great weather weekend, doing a 6-miler in the a.m. at the oceanfront then there is a parade. I just love parades and this is not your ordinary parade - it's a Shriner's parade. They are having a convention down at the beach this weekend, with the highlight - A PARADE. Brings back great childhood memories, don't know why I get a litle lump in my throat though, maybe just happy thoughts.
Hope everyone has a great weekend - make it healthy, happy and full of fitness.

We used this lovely tiny torture tool in body sculpting class on Tuesday. We use it all the time, but we used it in a different way on Tuesday. By yesterday afternoon, both my sister and I had some serious quad pain, right leg. Funny how we exercised both legs the same, but both of us have a sore right leg.
Anyhow, we totally ditched kickboxing class last night because we were both so sore, that's really not like either one of us to ditch, but we were REALLY sore. After dinner, we were bth feeling so guilty about cutting class, like a kid skipping school, we decided we were going for a walk, try to stretch it out. That was the longest 2 miles of my life last night, we were both hobbling a bit.
This morning we decided to go for our usual run, and it was the thought that counts in this situation, we were both very slow and couldn't even jog, but I think we are on the upside of the pain now, hopefully by tomorrow a.m. we will be as good as new.
Amazing that a tiny tool can inflict torture, haha, now I know why our teacher calls it the "Band of Pain" , lol.
