Sore but good

Monday, December 03, 2012

So today is day four and well tonight I am a bit sore .. but not my foot well it is but not from working out. I wake up this morning and it is house cleaning day . That is serious work really. sweeping, scrubbing, mopping and vacuuming. Oh and dont for get Laundry . For 2 hours I busted tail getting the apartment clean and it sparkled really . Nothing like a clean house to get your mind straight.

On the 12 days of Christmas fitness .. today was Planks to be specific 2x 1 minute planks .. Ok so I have a few days to actually get this right. Even doing the modified one showed me I need lots of work on some things .. I did 2 at 20 seconds now how sad is that but that is 20 seconds longer than I thought I would . So I am above the game in my head. My body is still recovering so no sense in beating myself up . the whole reason I started the 100 days was to get back my strength and well i knew it wouldnt be in 4 days .

I am not hurting just sore like you would be if you had just upped your routine. That is the gauge if it hurts and mean pain then I stop . I read today that where you stop is exhaustion but for it is sheer pain during that is a great place right there to stop . But nothing i have been doing has been hurting during .. my shoulders are a little more pained tonight than usual but i believe it should be expected. Besides my arms are looking as good as my legs .. it feels so good to just see the rewards of the work so quickly ..

    A friend used to tell me that pain is good for you, it lets you know that you are alive. Whatever was my comment then and still is. However, I would like to modify that statement....pain is good for you when you are working out, it let's you know if you are doing it right. If it is the OMG I think I broke something pain, STOP!!!!!!! and if it is the Man, my muscles hurt then you are on the right track! emoticon

    Sometimes pain is good. I love feeling sore (not hurting)after a workout because I then can say I worked out really hard. Good job on the planks. 20 seconds is tough!! You will be at a minute in no time!! emoticon
