Kinda Chuffed: No DOMS

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I was anticipating DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) after my first XC ski of the season Sunday. It was a tough slog in the slush.

But: the rowing machine and the elliptical and the strength training seem to have done their job. (Or maybe it was the evening grosbeak euphoria, who knows).

Not a twinge!

Supposed to rain this weekend, sob sob.

Who would have ever thought I'd look forward to winter so much??

    I know! Our winter is panning out to be warmer than expected and I may be waiting a while for snow. :(

    I re-added just a little strength training this week... and was surprised at the DOMS! Hmmm!

    I couldn't figure out if "chuffed" was happy or sad, LOL!

But congrats on the victory!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the non-scale victories! Like my bathing suit the other day, that slid on like it was waiting for me!

Can't sympathize with you on the we hiked in 65 degree weather with full sun dappling on the leaves and rocks. Heaven on earth!!!

    I was sore when I tried ski-joring (pulled by a horse while I was wearing downhill skis). I never did downhill skiing before. I've been cross-country and you're right probably the other exercise helped prepare your body.

    Glad you're enjoying it. I'm a little bit more with Linda. Blowing snow, high Wind-chill, gray skies; not that much fun here. Now skiing does sound like fun tho.
