Today was a day of firsts for this guy. I’ve just about completed my first block of P90X3, I will have a full recap/review of the first month next week. As with P90X the last week of each block is a recovery week, incorporating a little more cardio and stretching and less strength training. So today’s workout was Pilates X and this was my first experience with Pilates. It is all about breathing and synchronizing your breaths with your movements. I wouldn’t say that I was nailing it as I sounded more like a panting dog than a Pilates student.
I followed my morning workout with a raw beet smoothie. Which honestly is the first time in my adult life that I can remember eating a raw beet. Along with the beet I added celery, blueberries and unsweetened almond milk. It was… um, not the worst smoothie that I ever had… but certainly not the best. I guess that should be expected as I was DRINKING A BEET.
