OK /> I'm not officially starting P90X until Sunday or Monday but decided to do the yoga DVD to test it out. I figured....eh...its YOGA!...I'm a marathon runner....can't be that hard. I probably wont even get sweaty and will have an awesome 2.5 mile power run. WRONGGGGGGG!! After about 2 minutes of twisting, tumbling, and torturing myself...I was drenched in sweat. The torture continued on for another 40 minutes when I finally said enough is enough. The DVD is an hour and a half long...but I think its pretty typical in the beginning most people can't finish the whole thing. HOLY MOLY! Everything in my body hurts. Muscles hurt that I never knew I had before....people have been making fun of me saying that I'm sore in these places because me and the hubby were having fun in the bedroom. I wish I could say it's true...but really it was me...some guy named Tony on the DVD...and a rubber yoga mat. Not too special. I'll show some pics of what I had to do
Ok and these were all in like the first ten minutes. hahaha. I thought I was going to be lots of sitting with my hands in prayer position like this ..
But OHHHHHHHHHH NO! They even tricked me into thinking that by having everyone doing that as the DVD started. While I was by the DVD player....they had everyone looking like that...."see...you can do this..." Then the minute you turn your back and walk away...BAM!!! Lets twist and foot in mouth and ear up butt...etc.
I challenge you people......runners.....triathloners.....if you havent tried it....get an advanced yoga DVD and do it. Supposedly it really helps you with sports. I definitely got sweaty, sore, and it cleared my mind. In a freaky way it was relaxing.
