Today I was very sore upon awakening. My whole body was sore, and kind of "burning muscle" feeling.
Today is also Quilt Club Day.
I was going to work out, but then I saw the article about DOMS. What the heck does THAT mean???
Intrigued, I clicked on the article, and read it all. Now I know.
DOMS is an acronym for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. That is what I have. I have DOMS.
And I have cramps in my muscles too. They started last night.
But now I know. DOMS.
Yep. That's right. I have DOMS.
That means I have really worked my entire body well, and that I have muscle "burn".
I don't know about YOU, but I am sure impressed with having DOMS!!! To me, it means my body is changing. It means my muscles have been worked out.
It means I can go blissfully to quilt club after doing some stretches and not feel guilty about taking a day off from the Heathen Masters of workout DVDs.
It's okay for me to do a "light" day.
I will go to Quilt Club and not even miss that cheerful jumping and stretching and pulling a puffing and panting and glisten running in my eyes and all the ball chasing, the cat hissing, and the lying flat on the floor trying to get my breath.
Yes, indeed. Belonging to a quilt club is a good thing! I will be with my friends who are not yelling at me to do "Just three more! and then we are on to the NEXT moves".
My Spirit sings with joy. I HAVE EARNED MY DOMS!!!
