It's been an exhausting week, people! I had swimming on my schedule twice this week, but never made it to the pool, sigh. But I did 2 bike/run bricks, so I'm happy with that. The other 2 nights this week, I had stuff going on. I thought about going tonight...but I have a 6am practice tomorrow and I'll swim then (and bike and run), so I'm not too worried about it. I've done P90X every day this week too, so even tho I missed my swims, I'm not really feeling like a slacker by any means.

I've been doing some research on colon cleansing, parasites, and detoxes lately. I know a good detox would do me good. In fact, I did a great one last fall: Martha's Vineyard Diet Detox. I got it from the book 21 Pounds in 21 Days. I didn't do it for the full 21 days, because it doesn't involve EATING, which is pretty hard. It's a liquid/juicing detox. VERY beneficial and I would LOVE to try the full 21 days one of these days... But right now, while I'm training for endurance sports, this type of detox would not fit my lifestyle. I HAVE to eat to have the energy to train. That's not to say that there aren't other ways of cleansing, though. And that is why I just scheduled an appointment for my first colonic. Has anyone else ever had one? I've heard great things about them and I'm actually looking forward to getting "cleansed." :)

Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend! Here are my workouts for the last 2 days:

Thursday, August 6, 2009: P90X - Kenpo

Friday, August 7, 2009: P90X Back & Legs, Ab Ripper X

Even though you didn't get your two swim workouts in, you rocked the week with everything else! Nice work!

Have fun with the Colonic. Haven't hear much about it, but I am sure you will feel great. Do you know that the average person dies with 5-10 pounds of poo in their system? Just thought I would share that random fact.

5-10 pounds, eh? Even more than that among politicians I would guess.

hmmm, i've heard about those little colonics. i'm gonna be interested to see how it goes. my sister did a juice cleanse for a week, she said she wasn't too hungry but the things that came out of her, she said, were entirely un-holy. but she felt super cleaned out inside.
