|P90X: Day ~40 of 90
||[May. 7th, 2009|09:14 am]
Still doing the P90X thing, and it's still a bitch, but I have definitely noticed some changes. First, I'm in pretty decent shape. I can now run the length of 30 feet before heaving my lunch. That's easily three times as far as before.
Second, I can totally envision doing a pullup, whereas before I could only envision doing half a pullup. Envisioning the last half of the pullup is really fatiguing, and I wouldn't recommend this thought exercise for all but the most trained minds.
In all seriousness, it's coming along. It is an absolutely brutal regiment, though. You are literally sore in almost every part of your body, all the time. It's tolerable, though, because you get used to it. I'm definitely more high energy, too, and I think I simply sleep better (not that I had problems before, but I now fall asleep like a brick and wake up feeling pretty good instead of groggy).
I played Ultimate [Frisbee] yesterday and was actually able to keep up without feeling like my chest was going to explode. Combine it with making a couple good long distance passes (rare), and yesterday was a dreamgame for me.
I don't feel like I see any changes, but I took the photos and we'll see how they compare at the end of 90 days.
