Ow ow

Today I did my first full P90X workout, and my arms are shaky enough that typing is interesting. I did two routines today, as per the instruction schedule - Chest & Back followed by Ab Ripper X.

The first routine is a *major* workout, with several different kinds of pull-ups and push ups, with just a few weight/resistance band exercises thrown in. I think I may need to get actual weights - the bands just don't seem to do it for me. Maybe I can borrow Matthew's 10 and 15 lb dumbbells ...

Anyway, I can tell I'm gonna be sore tomorrow. My shoulders especially, which probably indicates I need to watch my form.

The ab workout is just 15 minutes long, but you're moving every second. I don't think I've ever really hit muscle failure in an *ab* workout before, just *motivation* failure, but this workout gets me awfully close. I'll be really interested in how I feel tomorrow, especially since I have eskrima practice in the park in the afternoon. And the Plyometrics routine in the morning.

The rest of today, after shower and prettification, is taken up with a date with MK. I'm looking forward to seeing him; he's always a great deal of fun, and introduces me to all sorts of new foods and wines. And stuff. Heh.
