I'm very sore today. My quads, abs and shoulder/ chest muscles all hurt quite a bit. It's a good hurt, though, because I know that the pain comes from trying to get healthier.
I debated whether or not I should do anything today. Would it be better to let my muscles repair themselves or better to keep up my mini-streak by getting some form of formal exercise all holiday weekend? In the end, I decided that I wasn't so sore that I couldn't hit the bike again. Yay me!
I do need to find some cardio activities that I can do at home other than just the bike. I'm sure that my body will get overly adapted to the bike if I just do that every day. Also, while I try to do something with my arms while biking, there's not much happening with the core or upper body.
I like rowing, so maybe I'll try the exercise room in the student union. Swimming is out until it warms up a little since it's so cold up here that I don't want to even walk to my car in the cold with wet hair! Maybe if I could get Gary to play racquetball with me...
