So....I did it today. I think I officially "bonked." I have never heard or used that word before...but somehow it seems to acurately describe what has happened to me today. Besides the fact that I am suffering from the beginnings of a nasty cold (which I REBUKE in Jesus' Name!), I can tell that my body is aching from head to toe. My quads, which I work almost daily and hardly EVER get sore...hurt even when I just walk. Today instead of doing my normal step class at the gym, I buddied up with my friend Rene and we hit the treadmills instead. I did 10 minutes and then hopped off to put my hair in a pony tail and somehow lost all my data, so I don't know exactly how far I ended up running...but I was on there for about 35 minutes and I know I did somewhere around 3 miles. That was all good...but then was my interval class. I was feeling good and ready to go other than a pounding headache so I popped a couple Tylenol and got started. It was a mess from that point on. I gave it my all--110%--but my all wasn't enough today. I couldn't keep up. It totally sucked. I always stand in the very front right next to our instructor and I felt like such an embarassement. Here I am---Mrs. P90X---and I can't even keep up with a class I've been doing for YEARS! Oh...the stupid pride. Anyway...I hung in there and finished and then hightailed it out of there. Believe it or not when I got home I decided to pop in a Zumba video for one last FUN workout before I have to give these Zumba videos back to my friend who let me borrow them. (I'm taking them to her in about an hour.) I would LOVE to have them...but they are $60 for the set...and that's just a bit pricey for me right now. Besides, the next thing I'm buying is new tennis shoes and P90X+. Maybe I can check e-bay or craigs list for a used set (of Zumba videos-not shoes! ha ha)
Anyway, that's it for today. Grant has T-ball practice tonight and then I'm gonna catch up on American Idol while vegging on the couch tonight, giving my body some much needed and very deserved rest. Have a great day ya'll!!
***Thanks for all your WONDERFUL comments lately! I plan to stop at Academy asap and try on those shoes you girls recommended (Kandy & Kate).
