It was still a productive day though. I did some quality yard work in the morning. (I finally changed the blade on my mower and it made a huge difference!) I don't know why, but I Love doing work out in the yard. Then we went to a party for our friends' twins' christening. Then this afternoon, I did a little cross training.
My poor bike is still broken... hence the 0.00 Miles biked in 2012. So I grabbed my P90X dvds and decided to do one of the workouts.
One of the things I'm always battling as a distance runner is the loss of upper body mass and strength. My legs are strong, but if I don't work on it, my upper body slims down drastically as my training goes on. So I put in the 'Chest and Back' dvd and put in almost an hour of upper body work.
I still plan to do the entire P90X program towards the end of the year, but after this one video, doing the whole program seems intimidating.
Goal For The Day: Cross Training.
Distance: 0.00 Miles.
Notes: I do feel better about my upper body strength after doing videos like this. I should really balance my workouts better so I'm not so one-dimensional. I've become very specialized as a runner and I could be more all-around fit.
Daily Miles: 0.00 Miles.
Run - 374.87 Miles.
Bike - 0.00 Miles.
Swim - 8,250 meters.
