More Workouts...

I woke up early to get in a run. The Fit schedule called for 25 minutes. To be honest, I really didn't feel like running. The temps weren't too bad at 6:30 am, but the humidity was just plain nasty. It wasn't pretty, but with the help of the ipod and amphipod, I managed to finish. Afterwards, the kiddo and I had a movie date with my sister-in-law and nephew.

Workout #1 - 25 minutes running, 5/1 intervals, outdoors (6:30 am)

Later in the day, while the kiddo was entertaining herself with her toys and the munchkin was in the bouncy seat, the hubby and I decided to do our P90X workout. Yoga day! I was excited to have something low impact to do for a change. Ummm yeah. I did learn something new....


First of all, I was surprised to find that the workout was 1 1/2 hours long. I mean seriously, who has time for a 1 1/2 hour workout? Tony Horton obviously doesn't have kids. Especially not two under the age of 4. Second, holding poses for 30 seconds at a time and then doing them over and over again is just not for me. Can we say boring? My poor hubby, I think I grumbled the entire time. Plus, we had to stop the DVD about 40 times to tend to the kiddos. :-) Oh and the knee? It's still sore as heck!

Workout #2 - 1 1/2 hours of Yoga

Okay, I should have woken up early to run! But, I wanted to "sleep in" know, until 6:10 am when the kiddo comes tiptoeing into the room and demands breakfast. Jeeze, I should have just gone running. If I had only known sleeping in would not be a realistic goal. I should know better. I had some errands to run - Dr's appointment for the munchkin, followed by a visit to the office so everyone there could see him. The kiddo came with me, so the hubby had a chance to do his P90X workout without interruption. When I made it home, I didn't have enough time to do the entire workout before the kiddo's swim class (and the hubby's hapkido class), but the hubby entertained the kiddos so I could at least get some of it done. After swim class, I did managed to finish the last 1/2, plus the ab ripper. The kiddo exercised with me - sort of...she did her own variation of a workout which consisted of jumping around on exercise mats, hopping on one foot and running to the front door and back. :-)

This time it was legs and back. Now I love lunges and squats, but once again P90X manages to take it up about 50 notches and makes these some killer exercises! I am surprised I can walk this morning. And then there was the ab ripper. Again. For some reason, it seemed harder today. Perhaps because I am still sore from the other 2 times I've done it this week???

Today I will get in a 20 minute run...even if it's on the dreadmill. Then, it's something called "Kenpro X", described as a "high intensity cardio workout". Sounds fun! Tomorrow is a "rest" day, which is good since it's my school day. However, if I really want to I can try the "X Stretch"....we'll see!

Workout - 1 hour, legs and back and 16 minutes of ab ripper

By the way, we're closing on the house in just a few hours! Wooohooo!!!!
