Bringin' it in 2010.


Tomorrow, I begin week two of the P90x schedule. Oh, did I forget to mention that I ever began? Well, it started as a family venture about a month ago and then I was interrupted by cold season and then the holidays. Oh, and the family part--I shouldn't make any assumptions but I think a few of them fell off the wagon. I know there are a few of us still going strong!

So, tomorrow re-begins week two. Although the last month was ever so chopped up with the dvd workouts here and there, I can attest that Tony knows what he is doing. Tony likes the phrase "bring it," so this is what I've been doing. I'm feeling my mid section tightening up and I have more balance and control doing moves such as Superman and the ever so tedious and killer Ab Ripper moves. I am loving the arm workouts and am about ready to do move on up to 10 lb, weights during most of the exercises. Yeah! I am back to a regular running schedule now, too. Two-three short runs during the week and one long weekend run--when the weather obliges.

For all you runners out there who are thinking about doing the P90x workouts, do both! I was saddened after the first two weeks of just the dvd's to find that my endurance to run was slipping. Obviously no running will effect running, but I say NO to this! Especially since I love to run. In fact, I'm getting geared up for the 15k Shamrock Run on March 14. Psss...do you think I can talk Mr. Go Big or Go Home into training with me? Last year, we raced the 5k together and had a great time. He didn't even train. See, this is why his current "name" is so. He always brings it--except, he only lasted three P90x days up until Yoga. Too much downward dog isn't good for bad wrists. Neither is a bunch of lifting. He grew up a carpenter. It's back-and-wrist-breaking work, you know?

Woo! Woo! P90X is pretty intense (or so I've heard...unfortunately I wouldn't know personally). I know Amber's still been doing it. Good for you guys! I think a March race is the perfect time, because it makes you get your butt out of bed in the cold and the dark and do something. At least that's what keeps me motivated through the winter...training for a spring race. Good luck! Can't wait to hear about it!

Well, I've only been doing it about 3 times a week. I need to do it more (insert whine whine whine). Good job Cass for bringin' it. I can't wait to start running again when the weather warms up. Try to get Mr. Big to do the race with you. What a fun thing to do together. Good luck!

If you end up needing someone to run with... I'd be up for the Shamrock run... I think :) It would give me something to start running for and it'd be fun... let me know. And keep up all the good work!!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
