Monday (3/2/09) Did the Power 90 Sculpt Phase 1-2. After finishing this workout I jumped on the treadmill and did ran 3 miles.
Tuesday (3/3/09) Power 90 Sweat Phase 1-2 followed by another 3 miles of running.
Wednesday (3/4/09) Power 90 Sculpt Phase 1-2 with 2 miles on the treadmill.
Thursday (3/5/09) Power 90 Sweat Phase 1-2 with 3 miles of running.
Friday (3/6/09) Went to the gym. It had been some time since I had been there due to my trip to Mont Tremblant. I really missed the pool so this is why I went. When I got there I hit up the treadmill for 3 miles. Upon finishing that I went and did 20 pull ups and then headed over to the pool. From all of the running I did this week already I felt light in the pool. I did 30 laps (60 lengths) with no problem.
Saturday (3/7/09) 30 minutes of running on the treadmill which came out to 3 miles.
Sunday (3/8/09) Took the day off.
All in all it was a very productive week. I am not sure if I am really digging Power 90 right now. I know its only Phase 1-2 but its not really pushing me. Its not that they are not great workouts but I am use to doing P90X for an hour followed by 15 minutes of Ab Ripper X. The Power 90 DVDs are only about 35 minutes long and have not really challenged me yet. There was one day where my calves were sore from jumping around but that’s it. I had to get on the treadmill just to get my heart rate up and break a sweat.
Power 90 is helping Dad out though because since he is so out of shape that the workouts are helping him gradually. He has told me that he is starting to feel more flexibility in his body already. For me to stay with it though we are going to have to skip to Power 90 Phase 3-4. Hopefully these workouts will be a little more intense and push me a little harder.
All in all it was a great week in workouts. I got a ton of running in, 17 miles in all. I even took my first YouTube video describing the many uses of the P90X Pull Up Bar. Over the weekend it had some views and even some nice comments from people. To help more people see what P90X is all about I am going to record myself doing all 12 P90X workouts and put them on here. Will take me a couple weeks to do but should be fun.
