Whoa — I seriously don’t know where the last week has gone! I was crazy busy last week with recruitment for a new class of graduate students for my department. It was really fun, but also exhausting and took a lot of pre-planning. Luckily it coincided with the recovery week for my P90x schedule, so I didn’t have to worry too much about missing workouts.
Here’s how P90x month 2 went…
week 1: It was really tough switching workouts! I guess I really did get used to the first month of exercises. But, I totally crushed pull-ups this week… especially on legs & back day. I did 8 pullups in a row!
week 2: This week I was moving up in weight during exercises. My triceps were sore from Monday’s workout. Otherwise, settling in to this round of workouts. Note: back & biceps day is HARD. Somehow I always think this workout won’t be as tiring, but it comes back and says “Don’t you dare underestimate me!”
week 3: I couldn’t believe it was already the last week of this cycle! crazy. This month really seemed to go by fast. I’ve officially decided this month’s workouts are always harder than I think they are going to be. Again, my triceps were pretty sore from Monday on Wednesday’s workout.
recovery week: I had a lot of things going on this week, but I fit in an extra day of yoga and some running to make up for not doing as many lifting days. By the end of last week I was starting to feel kind of burnt out, so I was so glad to have a recovery week to help me reset a little.
This week I’m on to the last round of exercises. I have seen a lot of changes so far in my strength, and I think it will only get better these final 4 weeks. I’m already excited to compare my initial and final photos! I hope my hard work shows.
Anyone else seeing some good improvements from cross training?
