Talk about a challenging week to run outside.  I made it 3 times outside and 2 track workouts inside.  Temps dipped into minus 14 range overnight Thursday – Saturday.  Brrr… 

Sunday, Day 71 –  Walk/jog 1+ mile to get the car parked back at church, chest and back as well as 5.7  miles on bike and Ab RiperX at the Y.   Great to have P90x in the inclement weather.  Not making gains on every routine, but overall better workout.  The push up bars (used since week 4 at home or at Y) really stress the form.   Pull up routines benefit from the Precor pull up machine (allows a little weight to boost) as well as straight out trying it.  Still not above 12 in one shot.  Really enjoy the chest/arm/ab workout!

Monday, Day 72 –  3.2 miles – with last 2 at an elevated track at Faith Lutheran during boy scouts.  Felt great to just run without worry of footfall on ice/snow.

Tuesday, Day 73 –  Ran 6 from Lincoln High at night (good footing on the trails) and Ab Riper X core (all exercises except for the sit up modified). 

Wednesday, Day 74 – Ran 6 from home with dogs Heidi and Cash.  Much slower.  In advance of another, thankfully lesser, snow fall.  Spikes held up well.  Went from 9:50 pace on Tuesday night to 11:10 mile.  Yuck!  Shoulders and Arms at the Y afterward.

Thursday, Day 75-  7.3 miles on bike at the Y – much faster than Sunday.  Maintained a 15mph pace.  Then Legs and Back, Ab RiperX!  Tony Horton comes to town on Friday so better look good!

Friday, Day 76 –  2 miles running in minus 5 weather, with dogs, then KenpoX.  Met Tony Horton and other area coaches tonight!  What a blast of encouragment.  Nice to have him stop in right after a flight when he could have ducked and crashed in the hotel to rest.  What an inspiration!  I’ll be with my kids on Saturday at a swim meet, so will miss out on the group work. 

Saturday, Day 77 – Ran 5 miles at 8:30 clip at a nice indoor track at Norfolk YMCA during the kids’ swim meet.  Joshua and Annaliese rocked during their swim events!  Also Ab RiperX (4 times this week)!  Mason Twists with medicine ball on final 10.  Probably my biggest improvement in P90x has been the Ab Riper X.  The first workout I had to take 2 minute breaks between each of the 11 routines, fading and falling to match the reps on final 5.  Now I can actually add to each one. 

Back at the end of Week 12 which kicked off with a great 12 mile run on Sunday!
