    We all have so much to be thankful for. I am trying really hard to be thankful for this awful head cold as I am getting a lot work done on my genealogy program.

Getting Out Of Bed Was Tough This Morning!

Monday, January 23, 2012

Have you ever had one of those mornings when you groaned at the thought of getting out of bed and going to work out? This morning was one of those mornings. For starters, I got a new pair of toning athletic shoes and I wore them for most of the day yesterday. I might add that I was very active yesterday; doing walking and cleaning. What was I thinking when I did that? My legs and feet throbbed when I went to bed last night and I was super stiff when I got up this morning! Yikes! I'll have to gradually get used to them instead of jumping in with both feet, so to speak. The shoes felt great when I put them on; very springy and comfortable. My issue was that they were new shoes and they put pressure on parts of my feet and legs where I'm not used to feeling pressure. I think these shoes are better for short time periods. Lesson learned!

Since I did it to myself, I accepted no excuses for not getting into the nice soothing water, this morning, to work out. I did wear a floatation belt to keep me off of my legs and feet. The water was very healing and I felt better right away. I was careful to eliminate anything with impact since I figured that I needed to give my feet a break. Now I feel fine, thank goodness.

It would have been so easy to roll over in bed and say, "My muscles are sore so let's skip the workout." I've read several articles here on Spark People about sore muscles from exercise and they all say to do an easier workout but to keep moving. My physical therapist told me that the exercise moves the lactic acid out of the muscles that are sore and will actually make them feel better. He was right!

    I haven't touched the shoes since Sunday. I'm going to let my legs and feet completely calm down before even putting them on again! LOL
