P90X and My First 5k

I’ve completed the first month of P90X and it is just about exactly what I thought it would be.  The first week was really tough; sore muscles, bland food, lots of sweat.

It has gotten easier and easier as I’ve gotten further into the program.

One thing I have learned, I am horrible at Yoga.  I’m reasonably flexible, but some of those positions are just not meant for a guy.  Period.

I’m also signed up to run in a 5k on November 7th.  I’ve never run a 5k before and I’ve really never ran that far without stopping before in my whole life, but I feel like I am in decent enough shape that I can fight through it.

My goal is to finish in 30 minutes with no breaks for walking.  A nice gentle pace for 3.2 miles.

I’ll let you know how that works out…

    It seems as every department in Texas has a running test. I have never been a runner. This post inspired me to start running.
