Sunday, a different sort of ‘fun’ day

I wasn’t feeling very well on Saturday, so I cancelled my exercise plans. I woke up Sunday feeling great so I decided that I would tackle everything on the schedule for both days. What does that mean? P90X legs and back, followed by P90X kenpo, followed by a run. I originally had 4 on my schedule, but remembered it as 3. I knew my legs were going to be tired, so I gave myself permission to run anything over 2.5 miles.

Legs and back was a great workout. Kenpo was rough. I know that next Sunday, when I only do kenpo, will be great.

My run was so ragged. My lungs felt great and my legs wanted to gogogogo but there just wasn’t much in the tank. I decided to literally run an errand while I was out. If I didn’t, I don’t think I would have gone running at all. What was my errand? I’m so glad you asked! I made an appointment for my next tattoo. I’m really excited. This was the tattoo that I was supposed to get after I ran my half marathon last September, but I’ve finally figured out how to incorporate it into my future sleeve. I’m starting on the literary sleeve first. Next Sunday. I’m so excited! Of course there will be pictures; right after it is finished and then when it heals. No grossies here.

  1. Ooh, I can’t wait to hear about the tattoo you’re planning on – tell me all about it Wednesday! It’s supposed to be sunny in the afternoon, can you swing a run around 1/2? If not, as late as you can do in the morning will work for me. 🙂

  2. Check it out! You have a blog too! Stalked, I mean followed you, over here from DailyMile. I thought I was being a bada$$ doing 2/a days, but you did 3 workouts and finished it with running. Holy cow! I can barely do Legs and Back in the evening after I run in the morning. In fact, Legs and Back is always the first workout to fall out of any training schedule I prepare for myself.
    I put you on my blogroll and hope to keep up better with your workouts, now that I found your blog.

    • Thanks, Kim! I can barely walk today & had to postpone yesterday’s long run (which I’ll be doing later today). I’m not that great at sticking to a training plan & this experience will really help cement it in my memory that one does not skip days without paying for it in a serious way later. I think I’ll stick to my 2 a days from here on out. 🙂
