P90X Day 41, 42, 43, 44/90

Busy, busy week for me! Summer time is the busiest time of year for me as far as work goes, so it's starting... but that's even more reason to make sure I get my workout in to "relax" me.

P90X day 41/90: hike and walk in the AM, HIIT in the PM
I took off on Tuesday and made it an extra long weekend for me so my boyfriend, Anthony, and I went out hiking. It was a pretty short hike but still gets your HR up big time. The hike is basically "stairs" going up the side of a mountain. Well it's actually an old railroad track but the steps are huge and gives your legs and glutes a good workout too. Went walking for an hour after the hike as a cooldown, then later that night I did my HIIT by running/walking the stairs in my apartment. 20 floors up only takes about 2 minutes!

P90X day 42/90: Rest day
Wanted to do Stretch X today but Anthony and I decided to start acting like it's summer so we hit the bbq grill downstairs in our building. We made kabobs and they were so good! Mushrooms, onions, zuccini, and lean steak.

P90X day 43/90: Chest, Shoulders, and Tris and ARX
Only got half-way through Chest, Shoulders and Tris because my elbow started to give me problems again. Once I start doing any overhead tricep work, my right elbos goes sore and tweaky. But yesterday it was pretty bad because it affected the way I did push ups too. Still pushed play on ARX. Think I need to lower the weights I'm using or need to check out some elbow braces.

P90X day 44/90: Plyo P90 Master Series Cardio Intervals and HIIT
Got my hands on some of the P90 Master Series dvd's so wanted to give the Cardio Interval workout a try. Really liked it, but after doing P90X, I think it's a step down in intensity but it was a nice change of pace. Tony looks so young!

Tomorrow is day 45!!! Halfway through P90X... I can't believe it. I think the 3-week phases with a 1-week recovery week makes the time go by so fast. Anyway, I'm no where near where I thought I'd be but no problem... still gonna bring it... even if that means doing two or three more rounds to get there.

Congrats on breaking your plateau! I left you a comment on your post asking for nutrition suggestions. P.S I love the Cheesecake Factory; the luau salad is to die for! I am going to be hardcore for the next two weeks too.
