My days are all off because of my busy weekend.

Day 1 was actually on Friday. I did p90x chest and back and Jillian's 6 pack abs. Holy cow!

Sat and Sun were super busy did nothing.

Monday I ran. I decided I was going to do couch to 5k. Wait what? You can run 10 miles! True, but 10 slow miles. I want to run a faster 5k. So I am starting couch to 5k at the beginning, running FAST! Hopefully I can keep it up when it gets to be for longer periods of time!

Tuesday: Did p90x shoulders and arms. Didn't have time for JM because we were going on a date :-D I technically didn't have time to workout, but I decided I would try to fit in a workout, shower and cooking dinner before the movie... dinner at home isn't happening. (at least my workout did) Please don't ask me to use my arms tomorrow!

Wednesday: Long, tiring day. Came home and was in a mood. Laid in bed and watched America's Next Top Model from the DVR and decided I wasn't running today. Then I watched the biggest loser. I watched these 400 lb people kicking their own butts to get to a better place, and then seeing them during the final week at over 100lbs lost for all of them, I couldn't let myself lay in bed and not run tonight. I felt like a jerk! So I went and did it! It felt good and I feel better now too. Even better when I posted my status on FB - I got a message from Matt (who is in Miami - lucky duck) that said "Proud of you." Me too Matt, Me too!

Thursday I did JM workout

Friday and Saturday were super busy and I didn't workout

Sunday I did JM

I can't remember if it was Monday or Tuesday I ran C25K week 1 day 3

Wed we drove to NC

Friday am (thats right AM like 8:30- so early) we all got up and went to the gym. I did Week 2, day 1 C25K

So that is that.

Saturday we are going hiking and Sunday I hope to get a run in, and then some tennis in the afternoon.

Matt and I drive home on Monday and I will get back to regularly scheduled workouts Tuesday.

I should probably change the name of this blog

I do love running. I have run a handful (a small handful) of times since my race (sorry coach.)

Tonight I started my version of p90x.

I am going to be doing the strength workouts, but running on other days. Also, I am not doing ab ripper x. I HATE that workout. I can't really do much of it it is so hard. So I gave the DVD to my brother. (then did the chest and back workout tonight to see it at the end of the DVD and taunt me)

I did do Jillian Michael's 6 week 6 pack (fyi - no one gets a 6 pack in 6 weeks, i don't care what you say, but I like the workout)

I am sitting here, SORE (its only been 40 mins) and stinky and hungry.

So, my new plan will go like this.
For 4 weeks I will follow this plan (typically it is only 3 weeks, but I am traveling during week 2 and 3 (wed-mon) and know I won't get a workout in some of those days)

Sat - Chest and Back then Jillian Michaels 6 pack abs
Sun - run
Mon- shoulders and arms then JM Abs
Tues- run
Wed- legs and back then JM Abs
Thurs- Kenpo x
Fri- rest

Then the 5th week I will do recovery
Sat - rest
Sun - core synergistic
Mon- Kenpo
Tues- Stretch x
Wed- Core Syn
Fri- Rest

I haven't looked at and worked out my plan for phase 2, but I will soon.

Hoping I can find the balance for when school starts.

So yea Tony Horton and Jillian Michaels are going to torture me for a little while.
