With back-to-back DNFs on the last two Sunday runs, I decided to scale back my planned distances over the next month and start as if I had finished conditioning, instead of training for the Historic Half Marathon.
This Sunday I am going for five miles (course TBD) so I took the Shangri-La not-quite-three miles. I turned around at the corner of Willow Road and Great Mills Road, instead of going all the way up Shangri-La Drive. I guessed wrong about the actual turnaround point and came up at 2.95 miles instead of the full three.
Two things of note: 0500 and Daylight Savings Time doesn’t necessarily mean sunrise. I still need to dress for low-light/very early morning. Also, I had a nice sheen of sweat on my arms as I approached the two mile point; gonna be a very humid summer.
P90X, Day 80: Back and Biceps/ABX
Lessons learned on the final resistance/weights routine of the P90X lean Cycle:
- Learn to hit “pause” if you don’t know what to do on the lawnmower routines. I think I got some of them bass-ackwards.
- I didn’t hit the heavier band until the second half of the workout. Got a bunch of reps but did I get the pump or the burn?
- When I get down to my “fighting weight (maybe 205 lbs?) I need to hit a pull-up bar on base.
- GO BUY SOME WEIGHTS, DAMMIT!
Too tired, and not a good day, so no SOTD today. Yoga X tomorrow.
