P90X Start Week

A friend and I were chatting the other day about our goals and what we are trying to accomplish in our workouts. It got me thinking about my goal being to lose weight so that I feel better about myself and I can effectively train and complete a Marathon in November.

I know that alot of people all different sizes complete marathons every year, and regardless of size, its about endurance but I want more than that. I don't want to struggle more than I'm already going to because I was too lazy and not committed enough to lose a few extra pounds that I need to lose anyway to stay healthy.

In the last couple of months, I started P90x full time then I stopped and was sprinkling in runs and only using it for weight training. All that going back and forth is not a good plan for me. Ive found out that I'm not good at having too many training programs in front of me. I have to concentrate on one thing and that's it- finish it. It was what I did for 1/2 marathon training last year and it worked for me, I just didn't realize it till now. This is a learning process for me and whats going to work FOR ME and teaching me how I'm going to be able to live a healthier lifestyle for the rest of my life.

I am going to completing P90x, I'm doing the Classic Version. My end date will be on July 24th which should be about 2-3 weeks after my Marathon training starts. I'm going to try and sprinkle in runs if I can but I'm not going to kill myself over it.
I need to concentrate on the short term goal of losing weight so that I can accomplish my long term goal of completing a marathon.

Sorry I'm rambling on and on about this but I really felt like I was just running in circles with my workouts and now I have a plan. :)
