Day 2 P90X
Picture courtesy of Jamie.
Today I am dead...holy crapola. If I thought yesterday was tough, today was KILLER. Plyometrics was the deal of the day. Jump training. It sucks...really, really bad. Since I should weigh about 120 lbs, and currently weigh 190..trying to jump my chubbie little body in the air is like lifing a ton! We did jumping jacks, jack squats, frog leaps, tires, monster tires, heisman jumps, etc. Now I know you may not know what these names are, I don't know if they are common names, or names made up by the trainer for P90X. I have one word for Tony Horton (trainer)--EVIL. The DVD is one hour. We do each movement for 30 seconds. There are scheduled breaks and water breaks. I ran out of gas half way thru. I felt pretty good about doing 1/2 an hour. I went to email my coach, and as I was sitting there, got a second wind...I decided to pick up where I left off. I am so glad I did. I really feel like I accomplished something BIG!
I tell ya...P90X is tough. It's a true bootcamp. If you want a challenge, do it. There is nothing better out there. I am sore, I am tired, I am sweaty, but I FEEL GOOD!!!!! I feel strong! I know it's only been two days, but these two days are tougher than anything I have ever done, and I did it!!! Let's hope I can keep up my enthusiasm and focus. I know I will...if you help me!
CLOTHING CHALLENGE! I have 4 participants! C'mon...let's get a few more. I'd like to have 10. If you don't want to post your pic. That's fine. Send it to me anyway and I'll keep it. We'll post it at the end of 30 days. That way I can hold you accountable.
My Jamie girl has posted hers on her blog! Woohoo! Iwill post all the links to participants blogs by the 1st--whoa! that's only two days away! Man, time is slipping.
