Day 45: Suppose to be Back/Biceps/Ab Ripper (Made Up Triceps, Shoulders, Back, and Ab Ripper X)
So I am still sick… Not very lucky for someone who is half Irish, but being half-way through P90X on St. Patty’s day seems lucky enough for me. It started with a fever, went to a sore throat, and is lingering as head congestion. Not fun. The head congestion has been the worst because I could barely breath for the last few days. Cardio was out of the question. I finally pulled myself out of bed today and knocked out Triceps, Shoulders, Back, and Ab Ripper X. Woohoo! Progress..
I am now two days behind, but I can be flexible and make up the resistance over the next few days. Next week is rest week, so I won’t be doing any real resistance. Therefore, here is my final schedule for this week is:
- Wednesday – Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab Ripper (Today)
- Thursday – Plyometrics
- Friday – Back & Biceps, Ab Friday
- Saturday – Yoga X & Kenpo X
- Sunday – Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X
I refuse to miss a single workout. This is not P89X.
Tip of the day: We are humans. We all get sick sometimes. If you are unable to complete your workout, or congested to the point that you can’t breath during cardio… Treat sick days as rest days, be creative, and make up your workouts!
