Holy Soreness Batman!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

I have been taking my fitness, eating, and health more seriously these past 3 days than ever before... if you can believe that! I am sore, grumpy, tired, frustrated, sore, tired, and sore, oh and very very grump!!!
Literally my body is practically burned out and I am crazy enough to be doing this on purpose. Thankfully tomorrow is my first 'off' day and I can not be happier for that. Hopefully, Monday brings a new outlook because deep down I know that what I am ever so diligently putting myself through will bring me the final results I've been aiming for. I am just super tired, grumpy, sore, and emotional right now!
To be honest mentally, I shouldn't be anything but proud and gitty. SO WHY SO SERIOUS? In case you missed it, I am really tired, and every muscle aches like never before. I've run a total of 14 miles in the last 2 days. I've gotten up with the rising sun to run for an hour for my 'long cardio' for my morning workout. I've lifted until total burnout on each muscle, rotating upper body and lower body days. I finish my evening workout with Interval Training until I'm almost sick. I strecth, soak in the jacuzzi(that's my favorite part) then I get my abdominal's and s-t-r-e-t-c-h some more! I have never worked this hard before and I am miserable- in the best way possible. BUT you know what? I have never slept so restfully in my life! I know what my body is capable of && At the end of the day I feel like the ability and persistence I have proven and will continue as planned brightly shows myself that I have earned being featured in Fitness Magazine.

    Although I understand your passion and drive, I want to encourage NOT to overtrain to the point that you are miserable MOST of the time... as that just doesn't seem like a healthy, happy life...

Good luck with your goals.... Enjoy today!

    Just be careful not to overtrain, k? I made that mistake last year, and my happy sleep disappeared for over four months...
