About a year ago I bought P90X and was so excited to get started. I had big dreams of a new bod. A couple of the guys in our office had done it and the results were amazing. But I quickly lost motivation and found it difficult to train for long races and do P90X. Something had to give, and it was the P90X.
Well now I'm on the injured list and can't run for awhile, but I need to do something to keep in shape. Already a few pounds have crept back on--it doesn't take long. So now that I don't have running as an excuse, I dusted off the DVDs and after my PT exercises I hit play for Day 1--Chest/back & Ab Ripper. Tomorrow the schedule calls for Plyometrics, but I don't think my ankle will be able to take it, so I'm going to skip Plyo and do Shoulders and Arms.
Here's the plan for this week:
11/20 - P90X Chest/back & Abs - completed
11/21 - P90X Shoulders & Arms
11/22 - Boot Camp at the gym
11/23 - P90X Yoga
11/24 - Spinning
11/25 - P90X Legs/back & Abs
11/26 - Walking
This time, I plan to do P90X only 3-4 times a week. Better to set a schedule that I believe I can reasonably do than plan on doing it 6 days a week and falling short. That's what happened the last time--I felt it had to be all or nothing. Sure, the results won't be as great, but there will be improvement.
