P90X+ Day 43

Just finished yoga x! It was a pretty good workout, but I have to say that I wasn't looking forward to it today. We got about a million inches of snow today here in Chicago, and it's still snowing as I type this. It's days like this that just make it so easy to sit around and watch movies all day... I didn't want to get off the couch! BUT, I did, and it was worth it. Yoga was just what I needed to wake me up from my coma.

Have you ever noticed that when you do yoga, it's really hard and grueling when you start, but about 20 minutes into the workout, it feels easier? The moves get harder, but my body doesn't struggle so much with them. Probably because I'm warmed up and stretched out. I still sweat big time, but for some reason, I can usually get to this point where I don't feel the pain anymore. It takes the right mental attitude to reach that point, though. Today was a good day for it; last week.... not so much.

Anyone of you do a running/P90X hybrid? What kind of schedule do you follow? I'm trying to work up a plan for when I start running next week. I don't want to give up P90X+, but I also know that I need to start training for my half marathon. I suppose I could try to do both every day, but I'm not sure that I'll have time for that or that my body is quite up for it. I've come a long way since I started in April, but one step at a time.

So... any tips on that front? Happy yoga day!
