Today I start P90x2. Yes, there's now a new version of P90x. I successfully completed the first version in 2010. Going from a size 6 to a 2, I lost 10 pounds and a lot of inches. Now I'm back to where I was before I started. Not Ok with me. Getting my ass in gear begins now. But that's not where the crazy comes in.
On Sunday I start my half marathon training.
If I were to completely combine the two programs here's how my week would lay out, P90x in Blue, run training in Red.
Monday - X2 Core, Active Rest
Tuesday - Plyocide, Easy Run
Wednesday - Rest or X2 Recovery + Mobility, Speed Play
Thursday - X2 Total Body & X2 Ab Ripper, Active Rest
Friday - Yoga, Easy Run
Saturday - X2 Balance + Power, Active Rest or Easy Run
Sunday - Rest or X2 Recovery + Mobility, Long Run & Pick Ups
I can tell you right now that won't be happening. My body would go in to shock and you'd probably be reading my obit here by Week 2. It's one thing for actual athletes to work out 7 days a week, but no one's paying me and I know I need rest at some point (and I'm guessing even real athletes do too). Wednesday and Sunday are set for my training group, but as of now I see myself adjusting the plans as follows.
Sunday - Long Run + X2 Core (?)
Monday - REST
Tuesday - Plyocide OR Easy Run (anyone else notice the combination of Plyometrics and Suicide?)
Wednesday - Speed Play
Thursday - X2 Total Body and X2 Ab Ripper
Friday - Yoga OR Easy Run OR Rest
Saturday - X2 Balance + Power and Recovery + Mobility
Still crazy, but definitely more manageable...I hope! I'm not sure where the Core workout will fall. After I get through this week I may find a way to double up with another day, but I know I will need Monday off. Thank goodness for my Massage Envy membership, I have a feeling I'll be visiting at least twice a month through March!
