One week of P90X down, twelve to go. Actually, as of tonight, I am 8 days down with 82 to go! Last Monday, when we started, I wasn't sure what to expect so I skipped the club that first night. When I was done with that night, which was Back and Chest, my upper body was exhausted. But, I realized I kind of missed going to the club. As hard as P90X was, I didn't feel like I hadn't gotten enough cardio. The next day, not knowing what Plyometrics involved, I decided to hit the treadmill before coming home to Tony Horton. Well, Plyometrics turned out to be much more aerobic than Back and Chest was! I probably should have skipped the club. The next morning, Lori wanted to go to the club early because she had to work that night. So, I joined her for a half hour on the elliptical. I came home that night and decided I still wanted to hit the treadmill again. By the time I had finished Shoulders and Arms and Ab Ripper X, I had done over three hours of exercise that day!
Now, I don't know if Tony Horton would recommend that I do cardio every day on top of P90X. But, I can't help myself. I can't seem to keep myself away. Part of it is a fear that if I don't keep up what I have been doing, that I won't be in shape to tackle the 14ers I have planned for this summer. I keep thinking that P90X is a great mix, but not quite as much cardio as I would like to keep in my current condition. But, I think there is another part of me that just likes going to the club. I am addicted to it and I had a hard time skipping it last Monday. So, I decided to keep going every day and I have.

Late Sunday, I realized I had exercised 14 hours and 46 minutes over the last week! I added an additional 2 hours and 13 minutes tonight! My body feels a little achy. And, today I felt the usual Monday morning blues. But, that's more likely the fact that I still can never go to bed at a reasonable hour on Sunday nights. I have felt good every other day since I started. Yes, I might be a little nutty in the head. But, that's my kind of week!
Here's to the second week of P90X feeling as good as the first...
