Do you feel better – emotionally, relationship-wise, sexually – when you feel in good physical shape?
I sure do. I have worked out regularly for years, but like most, there will be times when things get busy at work or home and I simply don’t get my workouts in. During these periods, I find that it only takes two or three days of missed workouts for me to feel less energetic, less cheering and less sexual.
In that vein, I have had an interesting fall. My wife, daughters and I have gotten very into rock climbing. We are climbing 3-4 times a week, and while this is very fun and a good workout, it is not as intense as the P90X and similar (Insanity, GSP) workouts I have been doing for the mast few years.
As a result, despite regular climbing, I am not feeling as fit as when I was doing regular P90X workouts. This really hit home yesterday when I did the Chest and Back P90X workout. It is a killer workout and, unfortunately, I discovered just how unprepared I currently am for this type of workout.
So, I am going to recommit to a P90X program (I have ordered P90X3). I will still climb (because I LOVE it and it is great to do with the family), but I learned I need more to be in the shape I want to be in. I will be reporting here on my blog on progress. I understand this is pretty different from my usual blogs, so feel free to ignore these posts if they are not of interest.
