Started P90X Yesterday. Ouch.
Well winter is here and I doubt I'll be riding anymore, so I decided it was finally time to try P90X. It's structured, something I need badly in order to keep with it, and at the very least I'll get/keep in shape over the winter. There's a lot of core work in P90X as well, and I'm hoping that will help my riding next year.
Yesterday was Day 1 - Chest & Back, followed by Ab Ripper X. My upper-body has gotten pretty damn weak and boy did it show. I haven't worked upper-body muscles in well over a year. I 'm not discouraged that I couldn't keep up (20 decline pushups? how about 5?) - it's Day 1 and as long as I keep at it I'll improve.
I'm sore, but that may be a combination of P90X and doing the 6 hour long Wild Cave Tour at Mammoth Cave National Park over the weekend. I'll post about that soon, when I have more time.
Today is Plyometrics, or jump training. I've read horror stories about this one, and my knees are still sore from spelunking, so I'm a little worried. Eh - I'll get through it.
