An "Off" Day... and boxing may truly be of the devil...
Friday, January 13, 2012
Well, ladies... thought today might be an "Off" day. Was really feeling the need for some rest. HOWEVER, Ms. Instructor had offered a tempting 2 miler to me yesterday for today. She and some ladies were going to meet at a local park and take a leisurely jog around the town.
Sounded like something I needed.
No, really. I can't WALK today, so it sounded like just the thing I needed. Maybe a jog would loosen up the soreness from the deadly boxing match yesterday.
Did I mention I can't walk?
Anyways, jog we did. 2 miles in the 40 degree sunshine. That is pretty dang cool by the way. The hands were not happy with me for forgetting my gloves. By the time we finished, I told the sweet ladies I was going to head 'round for another go. It just felt so good to finally not feel stove up for the first time today. Y'all that dang boxing really killed me! I was walking like an 80-yr-old arthritic by lunchtime.
I hopped in the car after 4 miles feeling spry. Picked up an uber-healthy dinner of stirfry from my FAVORITE Chinese place of shrimp and broccoli (HEAR THAT, HEATHER? :-)) and a little steamed rice. Was really craving a Coke so I grabbed a Coke Zero (I know - Aspartame! But I didn't want to totally cancel out my good run) and some treats for my guys and headed home.
Open the car door... stick a foot out... and... OOOOOOOWWWWWWWW!!!!!! OW OW OW OW OOWWW!!! MY LORD. It's like all that soreness just turned to concrete in my quads and butt and just STUCK THERE. All I want to do now is SIT. Good thing I got that 4 miles in... I'm thinking tomorrow, no more PRETEND rest day. It's the real deal tomorrow.
Because I don't think I have a choice!
