Day 69: Kenpo X (making up on Monday)
Just got back from my motorcycle safety class; over 12 hours of studying and riding. I have never driven a motorcycle before but today they had us doing all kinds of maneuvers and emergency stops at 30 miles an hour. It was a lot of fun, but I was also able to see first-hand how dangerous motorcycles can be. I am far from a experienced rider, but a few people were dropping their bikes left and right. Luckily we were in a parking lot and not out on the open road. Thinking about getting into traffic scares me a little bit. I need a little more practice
Anyways, I passed my written test. Tomorrow is another 12 hour day followed by a riding test. If I pass (wish me luck), I can get the motorcycle endorsement on my license Monday. There might be a motorcycle in my future, if I can find a good deal.
Another update: I had my teaching interview yesterday and all went went. It looks like I will be developing a new class for Fall of 2010. If all goes well, I will be a part time faculty member at a college. Not too shabby…. It is definitely a step in the right direction.
For P90X, today would have been Kenpo X. I am exhausted and need to rest for tomorrows training and test. I knew this would happen, so I took Monday off of work to get caught up. I will be doing two workouts on Monday and I plan to stack them in the morning and get them out of the way.
Tip of the day: It is ok to have a life with P90X. Plan ahead and schedule your makeup dates.
