The worst thing you can do when sore from ST is be a slug. I'd do cardio.

My personal workout schedule is very very grueling and I have built up to this level over the past 12 years.

But I started out 12 years ago with 2x at the gym, Tues/Thurs a combo step/sculpt class. That's all.

I'm not sure if I'm being too easy on myself or if I'm listening to my body. Today I woke up sore from yesterday's strength training. Instead of swimming or cardio, I slept another hour.

Any suggestions? What's your workout schedule? How did you get there?

I'm having trouble meeting my goals of doing cardio and strength training on alternate days. Usually I feel like resting in between. During the summer I did the cardio on MWF and longed for the strength training on Tu/Th. Now, I'm working on getting my strength training (M/W) and am missing the cardio (Tu/Th).

I know it takes a little discomfort to improve. I'm afraid I'll hurt myself if I push too hard.

Maybe I should just do my cardio on F/Sat. I've been doing it on Saturday, so adding another day should help...Then I could shift it to Th and add Tu later on.
