P90X Yoga X Wheel
I just finished my P90X workout for the day, Yoga X. Today I actually felt worse than yesterday (sore throat, headache, stuffy nose, etc.), but I still managed to get Yoga X knocked out. I ended up doing Yoga X in the evening so I could do it with my wife. I figured she would keep me going if I tried to wimp out from feeling bad.
Yoga X actually went pretty good even though I wasn’t feeling all that great! Having my wife do it along with me definitely made it more enjoyable! I always like to compete with her so I made sure to get really deep into the poses, maintain proper form the best I could, and I focused on my balance so she wouldn’t see me fall. I also had to do a push up every time (I usually do that anyways) after doing the Upward Dog and Plank.
I was really excited to get to the Balance Postures so my wife could see me do the Crane! I held the Crane for a good 20+ seconds! Jen (my wife) was really impressed! She kept trying to do the Crane and hold it, but she was never really able to hold it without falling. One thing that she is better than me at is the stretching. She is super flexible (I’m pretty sure I’ve seen her do the splits) so she can easily touch her toes and get really deep into stretches. During the Bridge or Wheel, I always just do the Bridge since I can’t do the Wheel. Jen can easily do the Wheel and she can do the difficult variation (she raises one leg during the Wheel). I guess I have to let her beat me at something! :-)
Depending how I feel or how much time I have tomorrow, I may skip X Stretch and just rest. Since it’s the last day of Phase 2 I definitely want to make sure I have time to retake my photos and measurements so I can post an update on my P90X results. I’m really excited to find out my P90X results so far!
