    Day 5 of P90x: Legs and Back. Ahem, I mean Legs and Back Super-Ripper-Blaster-X!!!! THIS IS THE "X", BABY!!!

    Do I really need to mention the workout was brutal? How about the fact that I had to chair assist my pullups, or take extra breaks? I think you can just assume that from now on.

    Anyway, the exercises were lumped into groups of 3: squat/wall squat variation, lunge/deadlift variation, and then a pull up variation. There were 4 groups of that, and then we started over for Round 2. Surprisingly, they continued with new leg exercises, but they repeated the pull up exercises verbatim.

    I've made 3 decisions regarding P90x.

    A) I'm going to give it 3 weeks. If I'm not making noticeable gains by then, I'm going to scale it back to something more my level.

    B) If I do notice gains, I'll extend each phase by an extra week. So instead of doing 3 on weeks and a rest week, I'll do 4 weeks and a rest week. The documentation for the program said this was an option. This means, technically, I'll be doing more than 90 days of this.

    C) I'll likely start seeing a physical therapist for my knee starting next week. If she says to quit doing it - I'll quit doing it.

    Amen. Right now, I am on TypeC because I'm not sure if I can make it to the shower or not.

    Oh man, I hear you. It's no wonder that people who do Yoga are so lean and muscular - it's brutal!

    Hopefully that's good pain in your shoulder, though.

    I would rather like one but unless it's strapless I won't be able to get into it and I was crying because it hurt so much and could barely get back to the locker rooms because I was so dizzy what the fuck is wrong with me.

    Ice it! But use a towel between you and the ice, and don't leave it on there for more than 20 minutes at a time.

    Also, if it's an option, take an Advil.

    And please be careful with your rotator cuff! Those things are hard to fix.

    Rest. Ice. Wait 24 hours. Heat. Rest. Ice. Rest. Repeat.

    Next time the teacher puts in a yoga video I'm running away screaming and sobbing, I don't know if it's supposed to be so trauma-inducing but it was.

    It's not, if you permanently hurt yourself. Patience.
