I started doing the P90X workout regimen last week. I’m through the first week’s cycle and this morning started the 2nd week. My first impressions are, wholy shit I’m not nearly as fit as I thought I was. Nor as fit as others think I am. The workouts are intense. However, they’re actually pretty fun as they keep a really good pace and have a lot of different things to help break up the monotony. What can I express after the first week? I’m already feeling lighter and stronger on my feet. I can’t explain why that is. Mind you I’m not using any of their dietary supplements or drinks. I feel that I eat very well and drink lots of water and tea.
I’m noticing that I’m becoming a little more conservative in my reps – mostly because I’m pushing harder and I’m still recovering from slightly overdoing it right out of the gate. I was able to keep up the very first round last week, but quickly ran out of gas. This time around I decided to pace it a little better. I met most of my rep goals and even improved on one or two – despite setting them a little lower as I work up the strength.
Last night I made the jump into the intermediate Blues Dance class. Apparently I’m picking it up extremely fast. The moves last night were fun. Can I immediately put them to use? We’ll see. However, I ended up picking up on some certain moves that were taught in other more advanced classes. That got some instant praise to pick that up even when it wasn’t taught last night. That makes it all the more fun to continue on.
Ok, moving to the music. What could I possibly think of for the soundtrack today? Good question. Especially since I’m almost finished with the search page of my library site. It’s at the phase of fine tuning. It will be a great feeling to have it completed. So close. I’m predicting later today.
So in the interest of following through and seeing things to the end – something I love to do… I’m going to roll with Finish What Ya Started by Van Halen. It’s a different type of song for the VH boys. Not the straight up hard rock that they built their careers on. No, it’s got a tangy slightly countrified vibe to it.
