Yes you haven't peed until you P90X'ed. Today was up at 5 for the Chest & Back followed by Ab Ripper. The Chest & Back is push up.....pull ups.....push ups....pull ups. Everything is supersetted. Very little rest between sets. I kept my push ups at a max of 15 and pull ups at 10 just so I wouldn't get to sore. Various forms of push ups and various grips of pull ups are used. Whole thing is none stop for an hour and after an hour I'm cooked and I don't think I could have done another push up.

After an hour its time for Ab Ripper. Core strengthening to the max. 25 reps of 11 different moves. I hang with the first 3 moves then I can't keep up.

Tomorrow a long run is on the training schedule. It won't be to long maybe just 5 miles. Legs still sore from the Tom King.

Official time 1:53:43

Up at 6 yesterday to get ready for the sub 2. Michele and I leave the house and get about 10 minutes out and she asked "Your not going to wear your Garmin?" OH CRAP!!!! I've left it at home. Laid it on top of my wallet and phone so I wouldn't forget it. So I forgot all 3. I've not ran without the Garmin in forever. Michele let me wear her watch. Good thing I had long sleeves or I'll be damned if I'd worn a women's watch.

Race started and I just fell in behind Michele and David at their pace. Was doing good until they stopped for water at mile 3. I was going to stop also until some idiot at the last second cut me off, tripped me up, and I stumbled right past the stand so I kept going. From then on I was trying to do the math in my head.

Long story short, no problems, and I finished strong. Actually left some on the course.

Next plan is P90X but I'm including running days and have made my own training program.
