P90X - day two  
Today was Plyometrics. This is one hell of a workout. I was pausing the DVD more than a few times, especially once I got past the halfway point, just so I could catch my breath and get my heart rate back into a reasonable place. I decided not to be too pissed at myself about that, since it was only day two, after all, and there's a reason I feel like this will be a good workout routine for me.

Some of the moves are just killer cardio. The jump squats where you try to bring your knees as close to your chest as possible, for example. And then they make it worse by doing it *double time*. I refused to do that part, just kept the pace I had before, but damn, is that inspiring.

And now, to prove I'm insane, I'm going to go eat lunch before doing eskrima in the park at 2pm. I think I'll be keeping my intensity way down. Especially since I expect to eat quite a bit.

I've watched a few of the "Making of P90X" clips on Youtube and it reinforces my belief that this workout is *not* my thing (it wouldn't even be safe for me with my joint problems) - but it's fascinating.

BTW, the ballet workout turns out to have *killer* thigh work, OMG. I'm actually glad it's that tough - means I can work with it for a long time!

Yesterday's workout made me feel like a total wimp/n00b. I'm hoping today's isn't quite so bad.

Awesome! I love that you've found something else you can work into the rotation. And that our routines are so very different. Hee.
