So another one in the books. Normal P90X schedule today would have been Yoga, but to accommodate my Triathlon training I hit the treadmill hard. My legs were feeling a little sluggish today. I did a 5 minute light jog to try and get some energy in them but it didn't help. I was planning on running for 45 minutes at about a 9:00/mile pace but realized my legs needed some help so I just cranked the treadmill up and figured I'd run at my 5K pace.
My reasoning is if my legs don't want to cooperate then I will force them to! Basically, it is I either keep up with the treadmill or I fall off the back of it ... this worked well because I ended up doing 3 miles in 22:08, about a 7:30ish pace. I wanted to go a little more but was feeling the burn so I backed off to my aerobic 9:00 minute pace and did another 1.5 miles.
Overall a pretty good workout.
The reason my legs were not all there today is because I am SORE. I forgot how bad P90X rips you up the first couple of weeks. My arms, chest and back are just aching anytime I move. It is not fun. And even though my legs are in good shape physically beginning P90X has put some strain on them too! I absolutely love P90X and cannot wait to hit the gym for Legs & Back tomorrow. This is my favorite workout on all the P90X and P90X PLUS videos. And I thought my legs were sluggish today? Wait until tomorrow!!!
Oh, I have been rambling on about wanting a new triathlon bike. I have checked out a few different ones over the last week and am still unsure. I have them narrowed down to two bikes. I might post them both tomorrow and see what you guys think?
