Okay so Sunday I read in our church bulletin that they have a group that works out every morning at the church and on top of that *It's totally free*. So I was totally happy right? The bulletin mentioned that they were following the P90X plan and I thought 'Ooh I've heard of that, s'posed to be good right?' and I was still happy. I decided to go to the early morning session so I could go before my little girl wakes up and I can leave her with daddy guilt free *hehehe*. So at 5 am this morning I head off to church and I'm a little nervous but very excited.
I really did not know what was coming... Now I have since been informed that there are several different work outs and that they all vary in difficulty, but do you know that today they were doing THE hardest one possible? The 'Jump Training' video (not the technical name probably but if you've done it you won't soon forget the one I'm talking about). They warned me before beginning the video that some first timers have even thrown up after doing this work out... -_- very encouraging
Well on the upside I didn't throw up, but I also didn't do probably half of the actual exercises from the tape, but I just tried to keep moving and enjoy the company regardless. I don't know if I'm the only one with this problem, but with all this excess weight jumping a lot can get painful real quick. I don't have the strongest ankles either, so I tried to modify as many of the exercises as I could.
Anyway they're doing different videos every other day of the week so I will just keep in mind that this one is still a bit advanced for me. I hope to go back as much as possible, maybe even every day. Having people to work out with is such a huge thing for me and I don't want to take this for granted. It would be great to go every day, I just wish I could work out a carpool with someone or something, lol.
Well that's all for now, just wanted to share about my exciting and tiring morning.
