-- an intervening space
P90X is winding down, and I do appreciate all the feedback. It is such a simple question, and really, the answer is simple as well: to do, or not do. I have decided to do. I woke up Monday morning with a really sore lower back. I did my Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps workout, but decided not to do the Ab Ripper X. That one always puts pressure on my lower back. Tuesday, I waited until noon to even attempt my plyometrics workout.
Ma called me silly...
The phrase of the day was modify, modify modify. I did not bring it, and took the jumps easy. Not easy to do when the word PLYOMETRICS is in your workout. I skipped a good portion of the most jarring exercises. By the end, the pain in my back had diffused into a wider area (rather than specific), and that my friends was better. Today, I am 90+ percent.
Dee Dee and I signed up for a 5k this weekend. I am excited! I wanted to do this race the last two years, but it never fit in. This year? It's on like Donkey Kong! It's the 3rd Annual Guns and Hoses 5K at Hobgood Park. That's two miles from my house. LOL... What's not to love? Dee Dee opted to run for the hoses (Fire Department). They were very good customers at our restaurant. To keep it fair, I'm running for the guns. I'm more of a pistol than a hose :-) I told Dee Dee she was more inclined to be starting fires than putting them out. I got the look of death for that one :-)
So, an early season race for fun. I have two A races on my schedule this year, and this one does not fit into that. I think that its important to separate the "fun" races from the "A" races and keep perspective. Those that I train for, I want to do well in. Those I don't, I want to just have fun.
and I think that will work out just fine...
