Weekly Workouts: 8/6-8/12

Last week’s workouts were kind of all over the place, so hopefully this week will go as planned. Still trying to figure out the best way to get in both cross and strength training. Should I pair them together? What do you think?

We’re working on tweaking Phase II of P90X to work for us. We ditched plyo because our running suffers, and the same with legs. We’re also toying with the idea of taking an additional rest day (Friday) so we can get to bed early in preparation for Saturday’s long run. If not, Back / Bi will be done twice a week. We’ll see – still hashing out the details. Here’s the tentative plan:

Monday, July 16

P90X Back / Biceps / Abs

 

 

Tuesday, July 17

 

4 mile run {1 mile run, 4 x 400m (400m RI), 1 mile run}

Weekly Workouts: 7/9-7/15

Phase II of P90X begins today, and running mileage gets a slight bump. Weight loss slowed to a halt after recovery week so I’m looking forward to working hard this week! Here’s the plan:
