Today is day 2 of my newest challenge and although it is early I am pleased with how it is going. Yes, I know it is still early in day 2 and that I am writing this at a little before 9 in the morning but I've already got my workout finished. Today's workout was a difficult one to get started. I was up plenty early (Chip made sure of that - the dog LOVES his schedules) but a spent a little bit of time debating whether I should do one of my existing DVD workouts or wait for my Turbo Fire which is supposed to come today. I decided to get off my butt and do a workout! I chose P90X KenpoX. I really enjoy that workout, I think in part because I don't do it very often. Even when I was doing P90X consistently, I didn't really do the cardio type workout because I was doing a P90X/running hybrid. It was a good start to the day!
As for nutrition, so far so good. I decided to change it up a bit today with my Shakeology. I usually have it for breakfast and combine it with fruit, milk and OJ. Today I decided to have an egg white/salsa breakfast and will have my Shakeology as a mid-morning snack. I'm going to try it with some super cold milk (it is in the freezer as I type). I tend to drink my Shakeology the same way every day - it comes with a calendar off all sort of different recipes but I haven't really gotten around to trying any of them. Maybe that can be a secondary goal for this challenge.
I was also very pleased that I don't have any pain in my foot after yesterday's hard run! I had periods yesterday when it was a bit uncomfortable so I made sure to stretch and ice. It seems to have worked which makes me VERY happy. I'm really starting to believe that I will be able to get back to running the way I used to run. I know that I need to keep up with the stretching and the cross-training but I'm truly hopeful that I will be able to not only get back into racing but that I will be able to do so competitively!!
