My previous blog, I spoke about my joy of achieving something I hadn't in a long time. I thought about writing another blog later on this evening, when I noticed something weird and had just thought about it at that moment. I worked out 6 days straight this week and I always loathe the first few days of any type of strength training because of the horrible muscle soreness I feel 24-48 hrs later. Soreness that hurts just talking about it makes me hurt. I mean, when a person can't even sit on the toilet properly, now that's pain!!!
What does the title of this blog mean? Well, it means that I did a Power 90 workout on Monday at lunch time and by Tuesday evening and into Wed.....my soreness was very painful, even through a powerwalk on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Jazzercise on Tuesday evening. By Thursday though, soreness no more. I believe my lesson is that if I continue to warm up my muscles with some continuous workouts that aren't consistently intense, my muscles are given time to recover....duh Grace...you should know that, how long have you been doing this? Yea...yea....I know, but I'm 43 going on 44 now and I now believe that I need a bit more time to recover. I try hard not to accept the age thing and that I can handle any pain like I did when I was in my 20's and 30's....cause remember, I'm wonder woman, but I have to accept that I am soon to be a 44 year old Wonder Woman who will continue to uphold her status as that warrior goddess!!!
I feel like I now have more respect for my temple and will continue to take good care. I've always had the mentality of that warrior goddess Wonder Woman no matter what, even if meant competing through injury and pain, but not anymore. I still have that mentality, that of Wonder Woman, however, I am much gentler on her physical being.
I am and always will be a strong and beautiful warrior goddess as Wonder Woman!!!
"Of all people, you know who I am...who the world needs me to be. I'm Wonder Woman."
