What a family
How did the years go by
Now its only me
-- Gwen Stefani, What are you waiting for?
I completed my first P90X recovery week. There should be a disclaimer on the packaging. Recovery week means you get to do more hard stuff. Just different. Like one of Liz's training plans. It started out easy enough with Yoga. I was so excited to have a recovery week, I decided to actually DO all the hard yoga stuff instead of taking the easy route. When I was done, I could feel every muscle in my back. Upward Dog is much different than Cobra evidently.
Day 2 was new, Core Synergistics. How bad could it be right? Right? It WAS recovery week. I almost cried when I saw pushups. PUSH UPS!?! WTH? It ended up being one tough workout. Core indeed. Day 3 was back to familiar Kempo X. Only this time, I brung it! LOL... I am finding that the more I do these workouts, the better I get at them and the harder I work.
Finally, finally! Monday, Day 4, I did X Stretch. It was still an hour, but an hour of good stretching. That was a break! Then, I reversed the process with Core and then Yoga. I really really like Yoga.
I am trying to get back onto a Monday to Sunday schedule, just in case I want to start training for something in February. Haven't decided. I may just start P90X all over again but throw in some running. We'll see. Right now, I only have one race on my plan for next year, and that's Callaway Garden's Super Sprint. I'm sure I'll pick up some running races as well, but I don't need to plan that far in advance for those. Towards the end of the year, I want to do something longer, an Olympic or Half Iron. If I am going to do Augusta 70.3, then I need to decide soon.
Wow! What a fantastic year it has been. Some of you may or may not know, but the restaurant hasn't been doing to well, and the current economic situation has made it worse. All through Disney 70.3 and Ironman Florida, I've had this huge sword hanging over my head. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have achieved all of my goals for the year without having to deal with a catastrophic financial crisis. I owe a HUGE amount of gratitude to my life partner who did everything in her power to make this happen, and my children as well. We are greater than the sum of our parts.
I've enjoyed following you guys this year. You are truly a great group of friends (and if you are not, I don't want to know! LOL...). I look forward to following each and every one of you next year as you realize your dreams.
What are you waiting for?
