P90X Day 19

Where’s the blog…(You know, just like the ‘Where’s the beef’ commercials from the dawn of time) I bet you thought there was a day off happening here, didn’t you? Well I must admit that I was not in good shape this morning. Thanks to the cough I picked up via my 2 Roommates (Steve and Kris, we are all looking...

P90X Day 18

Things I learned today:1) Yoga is still not fun2) Stretching a body that played 5 softball games is painful Let me give you 2 statements to chew on:1) Calming Yoga2) Flexible Bernie Both of the above statements are what I believe to be oxymoronic. The definition of oxymoron: a figure of speech that combines two apparently contradictory terms, for example...

P90X Day 17

It’s Sunday morning, you know what that means… It’s time for some football and P90X Day 3 Shoulders & Arms. That’s right kiddies, you heard me right. I played 5 softball games in the TCSSC Tourney (Saturday) with the CIBC team ‘Smack My Pitch Up’. We were pretty impressive (not that I’m blowing our horn or anything). We came through...

P90X Day 16

Plyo Day… Not a good workout, period. Not that the workout presented by P90 isn’t good, but I did not have a good workout. I think there is a 2 step excuse coming: 1) I think psychologically I was trying to protect my ankle which has been feeling pretty good since I saw Dr Chris.2) I am getting sick… Thanks...

P90X Day 15

BRING IT!! Well I brought it, but wow, it was almost ugly (like tossing my cookies at 6:30 am ugly). I went out with the I.T. boys to for dinner (Lone Star) and the Jays game (they won). I may have had some beers and eaten a chimichanga (in hindsight, both of those decisions were not good ones). Week 3...

P90X Day 13 (ish)

We now return to our regularly scheduled program… OK, so there has been a small delay between Day 12 and Day 13, please allow me to explain. When last we left our chubby superhero he had just completed Yoga X and was preparing to do battle for the Mississauga Men’s Slopitch Championship. Here’s what has happened since: Wednesday – The...

P90X Day 12

Leg and Back Day!!! Woke up nice and early (if you don’t count the 4 snoozes), to tackle P90X Day 5. I like this workout, even though I do have some issues with the single leg squats (I think February surgery is looking like a certainty). Still can’t do a pull up, but I can do half of one. Today...

P90X Day 11

I dogged it today. I don’t mean I just took my time, I mailed it in with insufficient postage and no return address… Not a good start to Yoga X day, did the first 30 minutes and said ‘F#$* this’. Went for a walk instead, but didn’t feel like doing that either. I mean I went 0.75 km and as...

P90X Day 10

What a glorious Monday morning… Yes you heard that correctly, the sun is shining (well it will be once it comes up), birds are singing (on their way south) and P90X is done. In fact the only thing wrong with today is that the Broncos and the Jets won yesterday. Finished up the Shoulders and Arms section of P90X and...
