Since P90x Lean Program's week 7, consisted of the same workouts as week 5 & 6, I decided to include it's review with week 8.
Week 7, well how did go? Not so great... I made it through, but I was pretty un-enthused all week. I had originally planned to my double workout days back in, but the YMCA was basically closed (except for Spin classes) for building maintenance. So, on Tuesday, I decided I would get in a double workout... Yay, right... Wrong! I did an hour of a hard Spin class breathing in air filled with floor varnish fumes... Bad idea. I think I would of rather smelled sweaty people, because after class, I was light headed and ended up with a 2-day headache. I still pushed through my evening P90x workouts, but I must say, it was tough! The rest of the week, I found myself going through the motions on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I moved my rest day up from Sunday to Saturday due to the Barnes Family Reunion and the Holiday Weekend. Sunday, then became Kenpo X day, which was a nice way to burn some goo from the weekend's food. Clearly, I was looking forward to week 8, I was so over this same workout rotation for 3 weeks... besides I really dislike the Legs/Back workout. I did set a running goal for me this week, which I did not even get to... Fail. On a positive note, I did do a better job refueling myself, and keeping up with my mid-day snacks and hydration!
I do love my photo from week 7... the Joy of Motherhood, No Privacy!
Week 8, brought a much needed break, the same way week 4 did. No major weight training workouts, just a big focus on core, cardio, and stretching. The biggest bonus, 2 Yoga X days! Monday was Labor Day, and pretty low key for us, I welcomed a new Lean Program week with Yoga X, a great way to kick off Fall. Tuesday, I skipped a double workout at my local YMCA, to paint my youngest daughter's new big girl room... Which come to find out, was a workout in itself, and Core synergistic did not give my sore painting muscles a break ;-(. Wednesday, I felt really productive and great, I touched up Mia's room, then ran 2.6+ miles, and gave a good fight to Kenpo X. Thursday brought another double workout day, focusing all on stretching!! I did Les Mills Body Flow class, then X Stretch that evening... I felt so loose! Friday and Saturday, I skipped my scheduled runs, but not my favorite Cardio X and Yoga X! Sunday was D'reardon's birthday, which meant I was giving myself a present of rest!! Week 8 was really a much better week for my workouts, but not for visible results (Thanks to being super bloated)... So, I decided not to take a photo!
Bring on Week 9, and all of the extra workouts... I will "do my best, and forget the rest"!!
