I know that I have been talking about my life as a new triathlete but I have decided to take a step back and work on my core strength. I have decided to do P90X and take some time to greatly improve my swimming.
I have one more triathlon scheduled for this year. That will be the Three Little Pigs in Smithfield, NC. This was my first tri and I have a time to beat. So we will see how much I have improved over the year.
What has replaced my run and bike is P90X. I know that I am getting on the bandwagon late but better late than never. Physically, I do not think it will be a problem. The tough part will be the diet (yes that is a four letter word to me).
I have never really ate properly. Fortunately I inherited great genes that allowed me to abuse my body for 40+ years and not really pay for it yet. But lately I have received some warning signs that I better start paying attention.
I actually started P90X on 5.23.11. I am doing a modified version so that I can continue to run, bike, and swim just to maintain a level of stamina in each. But it will not be any where near the level of exercise that I am use to.
As an added incentive, my son JC has also started this workout. Wish us luck. I will post progress reports.
