P90X Days 4-5

Day 4 – YogaX  This was tough.  The first 1/2 hour was really grueling.  The 2nd 1/2 hour was very tough.  But the last 1/2 hour was full of really good stretches.  I definitely have lots of room to grow in my yoga.  There were a couple of things that I could not do at all like crane and plow.  I tried, but got no where.  Lots of good challenges will continue into the future with this.  The strangest feelings later in the evening though.  It is completely bizarre.  After 4 tough workout days and after viewing so many before and after pictures, I am simply sure that this is not going to really work for me.  It works for others.  It will be good for my body, but it is not going to leave me looking any different than now.  I know this is nonsensical, but it is how I feel anyways.   I will push play on Day 5 anyways.  I will keep going anyways.  I am just hoping that I am wrong about the impact this workout will have on my body.

Day 5 – Legs and Back. I woke up today sore (no surprise).  What was interesting is I was feeling muscles in my back that I dont remember the last time I felt.  And then legs and back today with abs.  By the end I was so tired.   I got together with a bunch of friends tonight and many thought I had been drinking cause I was so tired.  It is time for some sleep now.  I am now looking forward to ‘rest day’.  I dont see how this wont have a good impact on my body.  I dont know what I will look like, I dont know what it will be like to finish this.    But I will keep going.  It is part of why I am blogging about it, updating my facebook, tweeting about it and telling my friends that I am doing P90x.  Makes it harder to quit.  Too many people know I have committed to 90 days.  I will keep going, but for now… I sleep.  Goodnight
