Project New Year – Day 50 – P90X2 Triathlon Training

I thought I was going to be more sore after yesterday’s race, but I felt surprisingly good. Stretching and foam rolling after a strenuous workout sure helps! The upper body was scheduled for today. I decided to get a good workout in and not try to overdo it. Pick lower numbers for push-ups and pull-ups, but in doing so I also decided to make sure that my form was good. So often people get tired and then let their form go all wrong. This can result in an injury or asymmetrical muscle growth, both are undesirable. So what do you do when you are spent? Well you either stop the workout (which is smart), or you slow everything down and focus on getting a few good reps in that take you through the full movement of the exercise (which is smart as well). Either way, you are ensuring that you’ll be back tomorrow, rested and ready to take on the next workout. Today I chose the second option and followed it up with a little swim to stretch out my back and work on swimming form. I love getting in the pool. Its my little reprieve from gravity 🙂
