P90X – Day 1

OWWWWwwwwwowowwowowowwwowowwwwoow    gasp!  GASP!!  oowwwowowowwwwwwfuhhhhfuuhhhhhhhhhuhhhh [just sitting down at the computer…and why is it harder to SIT than to stand?!]

ggggeeeeh!  ggggeeeeeeeehhhhh fuuuh gasp!  fuhhuhhuhiuhhhhh guuhhhhh gasp! [just bringing what feels like bloody arm stumps up to type]

Whyy does no one everr mention how “high-energy” Tony Horton iiis?!? (and whenn I say high-energyy I mean it in a manicc, Jack Nicholson-in-the-Shining “Here’s Johnny!” sortt of way.)

And whhy are my fingers not working?!  Did I literally work EVERY muscle (including my finger muscles) yesterday during my “Day 1” of P90X??

The finger muscle exercises may have happened during what I call the “Spider man scaling the wall vertically” move.  Tony calls them Calestanga Runs.  (Or something like that.  I couldn’t see what was actually listed on the t.v. screen through the film of stinging sweat in my eyes.)  And full-disclosure, we didn’t actually scale walls vertically but we might as well have because I wasn’t able to do it horizontally either.

But how can this be?  How can I have sooooo many sore, sore muscles.  (And internal organs.  We must have been working internal organs too.  Can internal organs actually hurt?  Why yes, yes they can.)  I run 6.2 miles every-other-day.  (that’s 10K for those of you who – in your youth – were also threatened with the possibility of the Metric System becoming the defacto measurement standard in the US.  Never did happen, did it?  But still, that’s the one metric-fun-fact I remember so I thought I’d trot it out!)  So it’s not like I don’t exercise!  I do!!!  And in fact I had this cockamamie plan in my head where I would alternate my every-other-day running with P90X.  Thus making it P180X.

Bad plan.  Bad, bad plan.

GUH!  GGgggggguuuuhhhhhuhuhhhhh.   FFFFFFffffrick!!!  fffrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrfrrrrrrrrr gasp!   (getting up from the computer and going to take a shower now)

eeeee   eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee  eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhh
