Working Out Week 8 of 2014
February 22, 2014
This is the end of week 8 of 2014 and week 7 of the P90X3 program for me. I am now more than halfway through the 90 days of workouts. It has really gone by pretty fast.
This past week was the same workout schedule as the past 2 weeks. I had to go a little easy at the beginning of this past week since my left knee started bothering me on Sunday. I think I twisted it somehow during the CVX workout last Saturday. Thankfully it feels better today. I did CVX this morning but I did not push quite as hard on some of the pivot and twisting moves while using the weight.
On Tuesday was the Warrior workout. I like this one – not as well as some of the others but it is an awesome total body workout. I had to be careful with some parts of it and the jumping since my knee was really feeling it that day.
Wednesday was Yoga day and I was really looking forward to that workout. I thought it would help my knee feel better and I believe it did. This gave it a break from the high intensity and provided some extra stretching. I love yoga anyhow and this yoga workout has quickly become one of my favorite yoga workouts. I think my cat really likes it too because he was around for most of this session.
I finally got around to embroidering a new workout T-shirt. In some of the workouts Tony mentions that “Aging is for Idiots” I decided I wanted that on a workout shirt. I also wanted to put something on the back so I embroidered “Stay Fit Stay Young” across the back. Below is me wearing the shirt after the MMX workout on Thursday – the dark dots are sweat on the shirt.
The photo below shows a close up of the embroidery:
This week will be week 8 of P90X3. It is the transition week so not quite as intense as the past 3 weeks – it still is not easy but I really enjoy doing Isometrixs (one of my favorites), Dynamix and the Pilates workouts. We will still do Yoga, too.
I will also be starting in a new fitness group this week with my husbands work. It is called the Power of Vitality challenge. I am still in my facebook fitness group, too. I think being in a group really motivates you to exercise and stay accountable.
I hope everyone had a great week of working out. Click on Leave a Reply and let me know what workouts you are currently doing and how they are going.
Have a great weekend!
Meeting Tony in person is definitley inspiring. He’s an awesome guy who is in great shape. I’m going to try out 21 Day Fix! Good job on your consistency! Thank you for linking up with Countdown in Style.
I really enjoyed reading this! I have always been interested in P90X but wasn’t sure if it was for me. Now I really want to check it out.
Laura – so far I have only tried this current version 3. I have heard great things about versions 1 & 2 as well but what attracted me to this one was that all the workouts are only 30 minutes and I have heard that the previous versions the workouts are 45 min. to an hour. 30 min. is easy to fit in – you just get up 40 min. earlier and get it done. I say 40 min. because it takes me 10 min. to get moving, dressed in workout clothes and downstairs!
I think group fitness is so awesome. I’m sure you feel your 8 weeks of this workout have gone by super fast. I love your shirt. I think we are so mistaken to think you have to be less capable and brittle because you grow in age each day. Thanks for sharing your experience with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured 🙂
That t-shirt is awesome! I just did my first 5k event today in rain, hail and lightning situations so I am still trying to get warm! Will probably do a 10k run this week as well as two hour walks, and try to get one weights session in too.
WOW! That is dedication running in those kinds of conditions. Great accomplishment. Thanks for the compliment about the shirt.
