Last week, I started up with P90X2. It was awesome getting back to my roots and it was encouraging to see that what used to be a real challenge for me now, if not easy, is much more attainable. Although, day three involved some stuff that I just could not do. Lots of laughter happened. Look up "Boing Pushups" on YouTube. Yeah, those? Nearly impossible.
This past weekend, I ran two 5k events. The first was Color Me Rad and it was a blast. I finished in 31 minutes and ran it with a good friend from work. This was her first 5k and she killed it!
Before the race.
After that, I went home and kind of crashed for the rest of the day. Because Sunday was Rugged Maniac!
Awesome Husband and I ran this one together. I really really wanted to run it competitively, against my Warrior Dash time from last year. But in the first five minutes of the race, after vaulting over a low wall, I jacked up my ankle and limped the rest of the way through. I was so disappointed. I wanted so badly to finish it quickly but it ended up taking close to an hour.
Oh well. We had fun. And it was something very different for AH because he does not run. That was totally challenging for him.
I took Monday off to recharge and then yesterday AH joined me for core with P90X2. I totally smoked him.
This morning I woke up at the crack of dawn and did Plyocide. I definitely feel on fire, now. It's a good feeling.
