I was, quite predictably, sore today after two days in a row of vicious drylands. So I took it easy to reboot for tomorrow ...
P90X Stretch, 60 minutes:
Although this DVD is called the "stretch" DVD, there are quite a few yoga moves in it. And there is some overlap with the P90X Yoga DVD.
P90X Yoga, 30 minutes:
I did the last 30 minutes of the yoga DVD after completing the stretch DVD. I skipped the first 60 minutes, which are mostly standing and balancing postures, as I was trying to soothe not strain the muscles. There is some good core work at the end of this DVD too.
Bike, 30 minutes:
Didn't feel like swimming today, the arms/back were too sore. So I did a 30 minutes recovery ride on the indoor cycle while watching a decidedly dreadful movie. My legs feel a lot better than the rest of my body.
Ahhhhhh, my muscles felt better after a nice stretch. Tomorrow, I will do drylands and go to my first team practice of the season at night.
I am having a heat temper tantrum. My truck says the temp is 103 and it can't cool down fast enough. Since I spend so much time driving, this is most unpleasant. Poor Fort Son had to rise at 5:00 for a 6:00 cross country time trial to avoid the heat. Bring on September!
I'm getting quite a nice collection of workouts now. http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=127613750980. I'll have to pick one out for Friday.
And I'm putting this up for inspiration, while I mull over whether I will jump rope or not this season. http://www.projectswole.com/conditio...and-endurance/. Just reading the first practice -- jump for 30-60 minutes -- is a little frightening. Most likely, I will keep my tabata jump rope and do that 1x a week.
Back in the car to travel to a volleyball game ...
