Okay, okay. I know what you’re thinking already. We skipped a day, right? We have P90X Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 and now I’m jumping to Day 5!? Well no, we didn’t cheat. Well, not intentionally at least.
Day 4 was yesterday and it was Yoga X. I’m not a huge yoga fan, but have a small sample size. I took one yoga class in college after a weightlifting session and it was a terrible idea/experience. Yoga X was definitely an experience. It was tough and I’m not super flexible. I found some of the poses amazingly hard, but all in all, a very good workout.
The problem came about 45 minutes into the 90 minute program, when our son Brayden started to cry in his crib a little bit. We were going to pause the BluRay player to go check on him, but stupid me, I hit the eject button instead. (Oh yeah, by the way, we don’t have batteries for our BluRay player remote because everything is packed up for our upcoming move to our new house). So being 45 minutes into the workout and me ejecting the DVD left us with no way of getting back to that spot in the DVD, and no way in hell were we going to watch the 45 minutes over again.
So Yoga X ended early. I felt really bad about it, but I’m sure the yoga will come back to bite me later for it.
Today was Legs and Back, and it was a very, very good workout. I actually really enjoyed it, because I could feel the burn throughout the whole workout. A lot of squats and pull ups with some calf raises and lunges thrown in there as well left me breathing very hard and sweating a ton afterwards.
Tomorrow is Day 6 and (I believe) it is Core Synergies, which I’m not sure what that is… so could be a toss up.
Then comes Friday and Day 7. I think I’ll probably want to do the Stretch X “workout” just to keep on a regular schedule, but it’s also our weigh in day. We made a deal that we’re only going to weigh ourselves once a week on Fridays. I’m really hoping to see some improvement from my starting weight, even though it’s only been a week. Even just a few pounds would feel great.
