P90X3 Completed. Up Next…

Now that I’ve completed P90X3, which is a great workout, I wanted to go back to the original P90X, but with a twist. P90X and Focus T25 Hybrid. This schedule was created by John T, taking the best of both worlds. You can read about his reasoning behind the different workout choices in the link above. I really liked P90X3, but I wanted more time on the weights and since P90X is roughly twice as long as X3 per workout, I think this should fit the bill nicely.

Out for a run..

It’s the week if the Shamrock Run and I haven’t had a lot of time for training since I pulled my calf muscle. I as able to fit in a nice 4 mile run today but at the end my left leg was starting to get grumpy. I’m thinking about another 4 miles on Wednesday to see how I feel. Then the Shamrock Run 15k this weekend.

I know mentally I can do the 15k, but I’m not too sure about my body. I’m not going to kill myself to finish as I have much larger races that I need to be fit for *cough* Spartan Beast *cough*
