brio - I DO take at least 1 or 2 days a week completely off from exercise.

Sometimes it is just because I know I should take a day off. Sometimes it is because my schedule doesn't allow me to get the exercise in. Sometimes it is because my body lets me know that it needs a day off.

That is good to know that I am not the only one that feels I'm getting worse sometimes instead of better!

Thanks for all the responses. It sounds as if no one is lazin' around on the days they don't run!

It was probably several things that made me feel bad this morning. I haven't had any liquor in a while and had a giant margarita on Saturday, along with way too much junk food.

Tomorrow is a new day . . . and a new opportunity to improve! I will keep woggin' on!

On off running days I work on abs and upper body and light cardio.

There are some days that runs are just plain tough with little or no explanation. Usually those days for me are associated with poor eating. But sometimes it is a matter of the body needing a rest. If you are completely new to exercise - it could also just be your body is adjusting to all the changes that you are throwing at it.

On my off days I use one of my exercise DVD's. I don't have the shred ... but I've thought about adding that to my collection.

I haven't done 30 day shred, but I did P90X over the summer every day and ran 3 times a week. I didn't have that problem, but I wonder if it's because every day is different with P90X so I was not reusing the same muscles over and over. I don't know how often you are doing the Shred each week and if the yoga is different from day to day, but that might possibly be what is causing the problem.

Just wondering if you are getting enough sleep and water too. Both are really important to muscle repair.

If you are doing different things each day of the week, getting enough sleep and water etc., then the other thing to do might be to just cut back on the intensity of the Shred workouts until your muscles catch up a bit.

I've learned (the hard way) that gently ramping up on exercise greatly reduces strains and injuries. Slow and steady wins the race is my new motto.

I've been trying to alternate my running with yoga & 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. I did 30 Day Shred yesterday afternoon, and when I got up to run this morning, I started out already tired. My run was awful. All I could think about was my legs already felt tired and how dark it was and how my glasses were fogging up. (It was pitch dark out this morning; had trouble seeing the yellow line in the road in some places.)

30 Day Shred, for those who have never tried, is rather intense. Do you think it may be too much for me, along with the running? Maybe I'm just having a bad morning after a weekend of eating way too much junk food. ?

I run so slow, if feel I need some extra cardio/strength to help me lose weight.

I'm just sort of frustrated this a.m. and venting and rambling. Please forgive.
