Hello Monday! So I made myself wake up at 5:45am this morning to make myself workout. Even though I only had 4 hours of sleep, I feel fantastic! I feel so much better thanks to Dayquil and much needed rest, thanks to my wonderful husband. The last week of P90X I finished, was Week 9.
Because I was sick for 2 weeks straight, I am redoing Week 9 and restarting Phase 3 of P90X Lean. There are some P90X forums that says to try to keep going even though you are under the weather, but rest if your body needs it. I chose to workout when I had the energy, which wasn't much...since my lungs were on fire most of the time I was sick.
So today was day 1 of Week 9. The exercise of the day was, Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X. I did pretty well, but struggled a bit at the end. I did the modified version in the last 10 minutes. I don't want to burn myself out before I even start the week of "catch up". I know I will feel it tomorrow for sure. I haven't felt sore in weeks, so I am looking forward to it. When I feel sore, I know my body is definitely changing. Pain is Good.
I have a lot to catch up on as in my fitness plan. I especially need to start training for my half marathon that's coming up. It is coming really quick. I hope I can just finish the race without any shin splints, pinch nerves or cramps of any kind. Oh yeah, I recently purchased my very first compression sleeves. My reasoning is solely for shin splints.

I will review about them once I know how I strongly feel about them. Have a great day everyone! xx.
