Wow am I sore!

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

So I've been bouncing back and forth between high and low cardio days. So on my low cardio day, I did about an hour of strength training. It felt really good!

Then yesterday I did a high cardio day including a brand new class. They turned my hour long kickboxing class in to a 30 minute cardio express and a 30 minute ab lab.

So for the cardio half we basically did a step class. I have never done step aerobics before and while it didn't feel that hard, I am SO freagin' sore today!

I've been stretching out my arms and legs and trying to convince my body to relax. What really stinks is that my mind is completely ready to go work out. My mind is sitting here thinking "Come on! Let's go to the gym! It'll be fun!" And I stand up to go get something and my legs scream "no, no more moving. EVER!"

    I remember the first time I worked out with a trainer, I couldn't sit down on the toilet without leaning on the bathtub. It was horrible!!!! TOO many lunges apparently. You're body will heal, but stretch stretch stretch!!!

    I felt like that a few days ago. Spend too much time shoveling snow. So I took the next day off. I swear by the day after that I was even more sore but determined not to let it get me down. so I worked out anyway and you know what? I felt better! Crazy as it sounds! Maybe working out again will help ease the pain.

    Kudos on the strength training -- I used to never strength train and now I love it! I've realized too how important it is. And yeah, it's always fun to mix up the workout with new classes and such. Wow, it's been ages since I have done step aerobics. I remember it being fun though.

    I did a different cardio video today with what seemed like endless lunges... I'm pretty sure I will need a wheelchair by morning. lol
