I created this blog to chronicle my progress on the P90X fitness program. If my experience helps you out that is great but like most things I do I have selfish reasons. I figure if I blog my progress here and distribute this to various people then I am less likely to cheat or not complete the program.
Since I did P90X this has evolved into more of a general fitness blog but may still be useful to some. The P90X stuff is still here but lately I am doing crossfit.

Still slacking on the blogging
...but I have still been doing workouts. I don't remember them all but yesterday I ran 5.23 miles in 41:50. I have a Spartan race coming up and the distance is over 8 miles so I am trying to increase my distances.
Today I warmed up with a 400 meter run followed by 3 rounds:
For the pull-ups I did 7 unassisted the first round, 5 the second round, and 3 the third round. I used a ball for jumping pull-ups on the others. Next I did 6 sets of 2 reps deadlift with 148#, 158#, 168#, 178#, 188#, and 198#. I followed this with 4 rounds for time of:
7 pike push ups
50 meter walking lunge
50 meter sprint
14 kettlebell swings (35#)
I completed this in 12:37. My legs are pretty well shot but it feels good. I have a hockey game tomorrow night so no workout tomorrow. I have a tournament this coming weekend with lots of games as well but will try to get one more workout in this week. It looks like I will have a game Friday night, 4 games on Saturday, and minimum of 2 maximum of 4 games on Sunday. I am playing on two teams in the tournament. I am going to be pretty damn tired after this weekend.
