I did P90X again on Friday. We did the legs & back workout and the ab ripper x. I could barely walk all weekend, LOL. After doing P90X 3 days last week, I've decided I'm going to take it easy for another week. Friday marked 3 weeks post surgery. I'm not supposed to engage in any strenuous activity for 4 - 6 weeks, so last week was clearly too soon. I've had some bleeding since then that has told me I need to cool it a bit. Hopefully after the holiday I can jump back in there. For this week, I'm going to focus on light biking...and swimming - for the first time in a month!!
Saturday morning I got up and went for a 15 mile bike ride at the down town airport. My legs were super sore from P90X on Friday, so it helped loosen them up a bit. The ride took just over an hour with an average pace of 14.4 mph. The down town airport is pretty flat, but there was a strong head wind on Saturday. There was one small straight away on the west side heading north where it was calm. In that spot, my speed was typically 19 - 22 mph. But the rest of the loop was generally 11 - 14 mph. Man, that wind was brutal. It was also pretty hot out and near the end of my second loop, I saw an ambulance pull out of the parking lot with sirens on as a group of cyclists stood watching. I wonder if someone suffered from heat exhaustion, dehydration, or a crash..?
Sunday was spent in recovery from the wedding Randy and I attended the night before. In all the years I have been with my husband, I have never, ever, ever, EVER seen him as wasted as he was Saturday night. WOW. Let's just say he vomited in a center piece, threw glass vases out the window of a moving vehicle, and urinated on the carpet in our bedroom. LOL...never a dull moment. If you know Randy, you know he's good people with a laid back temperment and typically doesn't drink that much...so this was all very out of character for him. But entertaining, nonetheless.
I hope everyone is having a good week!! I will be lake side in 48 hours - woot!!!
