P90X – Day 3

By this morning the soreness in my chest and back was mostly gone but if I’m laying down I still can’t sit up without rolling over first. Today was shoulders, biceps, and triceps followed by AbRipperX again.

Again I was doing this with resistance bands since I was doing it at home. This was a problem. I’ll be fine when I take this routine to the gym and do it with free weights. But, my shoulders are my weakest spot so I had a very hard time finding a place on the band where I had tension through the whole exercise but not so much tension that I couldn’t complete the range of motion.

Overall the workout wasn’t bad except for the times when using the band would frustrate me. This is one that definitely will be better in the gym also.

I worked through the ab stuff sort of. Remember that I can’t sit up because of the soreness from the last time? How am I supposed to do sit ups? I did what I could. Let’s leave it at that.

Tomorrow is yoga X. I’m excited about that. I’m probably wrong to be excited about that. I have a feeling that they are going to make yoga hurt.

    I just read several posts and to spare you several comments I’m posting just one here :).

    First I hope you had a wonderful Christmas day! Did you enjoy the gift SO bought you? How did Z like her gifts? Was the cooking a success?

    Holiday’s are so difficult for divorced couples with children. My parents divorced when I was a child and even at my age I am still having to choose (I didn’t have any say in creating this situation yet all the guilt it put on me for hurting someone’s feelings). I only share this because Z may have similar issues when she gets older, be patient.

    That said…. the xmas morning thing is setting expectations that are impossible to keep up. Sorry for this situation – it adds alot of stress to you and your family. On the bright side, today is Dec 26th and you don’t have to worry about this again until next year (ha… trying to be funny).

    I wish you a stressfree, restful rest of 2010.

    Dear Heather. I’m glad you aren’t dead. I’m glad you decided to share this relevant story with the internet.

    I have been reading your updates aloud to my husband while we both laugh hysterically. We are feeling a little smug that we would never kill ourselves with an exercise routine. We figure if we’re going to die of something self inflicted, eating everything in sight will be a more fun way to go.

    Hope the P90X doesn’t ruin yoga for you. Or kill you.
