My Week in Training & Boob Day

After my admission last week about being a total couch potato, and totally falling out of my workout routine. I decided to really get back into things this week. So first thing Monday morning Neal (hubby) and I got up  at 4:30am and started P90X again. Since I am a runner at heart P90X is only the start of my day, somewhere in there 3 times a week I have to get my run in too. I must admit I skipped Monday’s run since it was the first day and I was sore from the 8miles on Sunday I decided that just P90X was enough for then. So here is how my week played out.

Monday – P90X Chest & Back, Ab Ripper

Tuesday – P90X Plyometrics

Wednesday – P90X Back & Biceps, Ab Ripper, 4.5 mile Run

Thursday – P90X Cardio X

Friday – P90X Legs & Back, Ab Ripper, 4 mile Run

(Note: I totally wimped out and did not get up this morning for P90X, so before dinner Neal and I plan to do it and we will)

This weekend I plan to do another 8mile run and feel very confident that it will go MUCH better than last weeks. My two runs this week felt good and I feel so much more like myself after all the working out. Now all I have to do is STOP eating like a total piggy and maybe just maybe I will lose some of the weight I have put on.

On another note. Today is my fellow running mom’s Boob day. For those of you who do not know Kari she is one amazing woman. Early last year she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and that woman fought it with all she had. After a double Mastectomy and months of chemotherapy she won her battle with cancer, hey we all knew it did not stand a chance against Kari. So back to the boob day, well today Kari is getting her new Tata’s. So our running mom group decided to run today in her honor, and since we were running for boobs we were suppose to go out with just our bra tops. Okay, I feel totally bad but I just could not bring myself to do it. After the weight I gained my body image is low, so I did what any woman would do in this situation and I made my dog do it : ) See how pretty she looks! I did wear my running mom shirt and during the whole run I thought of how Amazing a woman Kari is and that if I ever have to fight the battle that she did, that I would have the courage and strength to beat it like she did. You truly are an inspiration Kari and congratulation on your new Tata’s!!!

I have been doing p90X too lately and man my body is sore, so it's making some of my runs harder! who knew how much I'd use my upper body to do hill work!

You are doing great with your workouts!

Nice job!! I have been doing P90X too and it quite a work out!
My hubby is out of town so I have to fit it in and haven't been able to run much but the p90x has been a descent substitute.

I think it's awesome that you and your mom group did a run to honor your friend. I love Boob day...that's so great! Oh, and I wouldn't have just worn my bra either, but I like how you made your dog wear it...ha ha! :)

And, congrats on getting back to your workouts. Sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to keep with it. Keep up the awesome work! :)
