R9D7 – Who Am I Kidding

P90X2 is kicking my ass. Sure, I’m in great shape, but I realized last night during X2 Total Body that I have a long way to go to keep up with the kids in the DVD. Some workouts I find are OK, but last night X2 TB kicked me in the teeth. I wasn’t expecting it, I thought I would have problems with the donkey kick burpees (which were easier than I thought) but that most other things would be fine. It’s partly due to my sub standard stability ball because with the balls at gymnastics I can do this stuff no problem and it’s also partly due to the doorway chinup bar I was using, but excuses apart, I just didn’t manage to get the reps done that I thought I should have.

This is a good thing.

My shoulder got a little sore last night during the swimmers press and it still aches this morning, but apart from that the only thing hurting is my ego. I am secretly happy inside, it means I have a long way to go to master the finer balance moves and although my coordination, balance and mobility are pretty good, they can all use work.

I’m about to go into the holiday season with the challenge of being away from home for days at a time. I am not sure how I can get this done, but I am sure going to try!
