So, Day 1 of P90X involved Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X. Everything got put on my iPod because there's no TV in the weight room (aka the unfinished storage of the basement), which makes it interesting since I'm constantly juggling the iPod while trying to work out. No pull up bar, so I get to make do with the I-beam that goes across the ceiling. Anyway, I got my butt kicked. After like the third exercise, I had to revert to girlie push-ups and assisted pull-ups with a chair. Hmm, remember how junior year I could do 14 overhand pull-ups no problem? Well, maybe not totally no problem since there was some kipping at the end, but still, 14 pull-ups was not bad. Yeah well, so much for that, because apparently 90 mile weeks aren't good for maintaining any sort of upper body muscle. Ab Ripper X was less disastrous, but still pretty pathetic. Anyway, this plan will likely disappear as soon as I can resume running, since there's no way that it's compatible with real running training. So hopefully it'll be P(short number of days)X, since I'll be sad if I can't train for 90 days. If, and that's a big if, it even lasts that long. But for now, it'll give me something else to mix it up with instead of being on the trainer all the time. Also the nutrition plan will be completely ignored since my body doesn't run on 1500 calories or whatever miniscule number they give you. Screw that, no can do.
On an amusing note, I can't help but be reminded of the BeachBody coach that
