Fitness: P90X - Day 1

We started P90X in-home training today.  Let me start by saying that I know very little about this workout program aside from its claim to transform your body into amazingness in 90 days.  I haven't seen any of their advertising nor have I read any of the literature supplied with the program.  In fact the above banner was just pulled from their website which I visited for the first time (for the sole purpose of finding a banner).  I'm very much just following Farilla's lead on this one.  Though, from a few conversations I've had with friends, this seems to be the current big workout trend.  Farilla's been really pumped about getting on the P90X train so I figured, wth.  I'm in.  Seriously how hard could it be? It's not like having a trainer in the room with you who would normally hold you accountable for slacking off.  I figure I'll work at my own pace and we'll see what happens.   

Well......what happened was that Day 1 kicked my ass (or rather my upper extremities) so hard that I barely notice how sore my legs are from my run yesterday.  Dude!

Having a partner through this process will make all the difference.  Farilla's support and encouragement (mixed with a dash of my competitiveness) will be enough to keep me from slacking off.  We'll take some baseline measurements/photos and post updates along the way.  Stay tuned!
