This is pretty obvious, but alcohol and working out do not mix (actually me and alcohol do not mix but that is a different story). I went to the gym on Monday to run off all of the alcohol I consumed on Saturday. I literally felt like I was sick. I was sweating profusely followed by cold sweats. Worst feeling in the world! I somehow managed to run 2 miles without stopping. I got my first mile down to 11 minutes and my second mile stayed at 10 minutes. My legs felt like they were going to fall off so I walked .5 miles and then ran the last .5 miles. I then did the P90X Ab Ripper X workout. Considering the circumstances, it was a pretty good workout. Good thing I started training so early, who knew running 3 miles was going to be so hard! This morning I did not want to get out of bed, but my wonderful husband convinced me otherwise. I did P90X Legs and Shoulders. I forgot how much I love P90X workouts! The exercises are a nice break from the treadmill or bike and they really challenge you in different ways. My legs were on fire for 59 minutes! Tomorrow Ashley and I are going to bike or take the spinning class. This time we are going to be prepared. She is bringing home a HUGE pad for us to wear!
