Day 22: Yoga X

What a difference a little sleeps makes! Passed out about 12:30 A.M. last night after tackling some computer server issues (which can always be a good way to blow some much-valuable sleep time). But I still logged about nine hours. It was much needed. So come workout time, I was ready to go. This is Week 4: Recovery Week. Based on the Classic program, this is a week they want you to chill a bit...

Day 21: Kenpo X

Urgh. We went out for Tara’s friends pre-wedding party last night. Dinner was way late, so therefore, the night was way late. Late nights usually mean some ‘adult beverages’ and that leads to headaches…which leads to ‘the last thing you want to do is work out’. It’s not recommended that you drink while on P90X. Well, I get that. Some people don’t...

Day 20: Legs & Back

I hit the golf course today. A couple buddies and I went to Dubsdread, an Orlando course near downtown, for some much needed fresh air and practice.  I have a great app to track the round called Golf Shot, and it keeps track of all my rounds. I noticed I hadn’t played since November 19th. Pathetic. But ironically, that round was the best back nine of my career – so I was hoping to...

Day 19: Yoga X

Not a great performance. That is the summary for today. While I’m becoming much more flexible, my available time is about as tight as a new drum, so Yoga was a bit condensed today. Nothing outstanding to report on today from the ‘Office Workout Space’, other than TGIF. Hitting the links tomorrow and plan to do Legs & Back afterward. That’s not going to be an easy task...

Day 18: Rest Day

I had a Sweeps shoot on the coast today, so I won’t be hitting the workout today. Thursdays seem to be lining up as a good day off, so we’ll go for it. Have a good day!

Day 17: Shoulders & Arms

Pushed my work this morning to the brink…so it left me only a small window to work out. But I got it in. It wasn’t 100% complete. Which sucks. But it was good enough considering the circumstances. I did complete Ab Ripper to the fullest. I can feel my lower back bulging out of my skin as I write this. Not the greatest feeling in the world, but it’s life. Tomorrow is a reporting...

Day 16: Plyometrics

They’re alive! The legs are actually starting to work like they’re supposed to. Today was a pretty good workout. It was much better than yesterday’s debacle. I came out of the gate strong and the legs could hang for awhile, still not the whole hour. But getting close. I’m not much of a closer. Yet. We’ll get there. Had a weekend full of not-so-great-food and some...

Day 15: Chest & Back

Starting week three today. And it’s like I hit a plateau. I made it through the first 1/2 hour of the workout but then hit a wall. Not sure why that was. I didn’t have much for breakfast, but I just feel worn out today. Ah well, must be the fact I just came off a three day weekend and needed my can kicked to get back into the swing of things. Got the workout in and we’re off to...

Day 14: Legs & Back

Back on track and finished up week 2. Disappointing to see that red X on the board, but oh well. I’m back on track and that’s all that matters. Yesterday was jammed packed so it was tough to get a workout in. And Thursday was a 14 hour day at work – so that simply didn’t work out too well. But I nailed down Legs & Back today (despite not wanting any part of it!). But...

Day 13: Tragedy

Full disclosure: I earned my first big, red X today on the workout log. Today was so filled with work (despite being my day off) I just couldn’t get to the workout. It’s difficult putting an X on the board, but I have to admit the workout didn’t get in. But the amount of work we got done was awesome – so I don’t feel too bad. I need to realize for the amount of work...
