This week I am doing a lot of random workouts. Just having fun with things while I am getting back into the swing of things and have a lot of flexibility. Come May 20th it's full time INSANITY so I'm enjoying this "free time" while I have it. Yesterday I did core synergistics for the first time since I did my month of P90x earlier this year. I picked this workout because I remembered it as being a good recovery week workout...not too hard but not easy either.
Clearly my memory is foggy...or after doing 3 weeks of P90x my body was a well oiled machine.
I am straight up toilet sore today. Don't act like you have never been there...toilet sore is when you can barely get yourself to sit on the toilet because your legs are so torn up. It's that kind of sore where you kind of walk weird. My stomach is not feeling too bad, but my behind and legs (especially my quads) are on fire. I'm kind of shocked, I NEVER got this result before from this workout. Ever. I also could do a lot more than I could do before. More of the lunges and better form on the lunges I completed. Better form is really probably the biggest difference. It's easier to get into the different exercises and positions than it was before and to do more reps since I've lost more and more weight. I'm really excited to get into INSANITY again significantly lighter and leaner than my first go around. I'm thinking that I'll see some really different types of results just because my ability has morphed a lot.
For the next week, my general plan is to keep mixing it up. I will be out of town a few days, so I will make sure to pack some travel friendly (read: workouts that don't require a bunch of stuff) dvds with me. Some candidates for that are TurboFire, P90x core synergistics, or Les Mills Combat. I'm picking up a bunch of travel friendly snacks too. I'm going to be busy and I know that if I don't pack foods I can have in a pinch or if meals are served that don't really agree with me or go with my food needs then I'm going to be in a bad jam.
I will post the workout plan for the week tomorrow morning and some of my meals for this week!
