Sore muscles and outdoor running.

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

So today during lunch I ran outside rather than on a treadmill...haven't done that since April I think! Definitely not since I started my Sparkpeople journey. It was difficult, not surprisingly. I found it easier to push myself though, even though the fatigue in my legs and the wind resistance made it really difficult. I was tired at the end, but pleased and proud of my body.

Yesterday, I did go home and make chili. While it was cooking I did about 45 min work of strength training, about 9 different exercises. One I did was bridge, and since I haven't really worked my upper body in a while, it was killer. I haven't even done yoga lately, sad to say. Either way, today my shoulders are so sore!!! I know its because I used muscles that were starting to atrophy so it's all good emoticon

Since it's Halloween, Lacebot and I are doing Zumba tomorrow. I'm ready!!! Tonight I'm going to go home and relax and recover, maybe watch some TV or read. I passed up a fun outing with friends at a bar tonight, but I knew that at this point I need to stay away from temptation as much as I can.

    Good for you! I'm always surprised by how much different it is when you take your run off the treadmill and outside. And yay for strength exercises. Cardio is always my go-to exercise but I'm trying to incorporate more weights. And hurray for the Zumba! Sounds like you're making some good decisions and taking care of yourself. Keep up the good work! =D

    I've been mixing my runs between inside and outside lately. My problem now as the weather gets colder is that I don't have suitable warmer running attire, so I need to get out and find some. Need to do some research on the "right" clothes (ones that will keep me warm but not too warm!).
