Beating Soreness

Thursday, June 20, 2013

After a long workout yesterday that left me physically spent, and confident that I had done something right as a result, I woke up today quite sore. My legs and lower back were sore, as well as my pectorals and biceps (likely delayed from Monday's weight training). I had grand plans for repeating my efforts today, but instead found myself sleeping until noon and being lazy for much of the afternoon. I decided around 6:00PM that I would head to the gym for Yoga, in the hopes that stretching might be what the doctor ordered. I misjudged the start time of class my 15 minutes, and not wanting to walk in late and disturb the class, I chose to do my weight training circuit and a smattering of cardio. I feel so much better now! The movement oiled my gears and helped to work out the stiffness. Consistency is key. I'm easing into a more ambitious regimen, which will hopefully help me sustain it for the duration of the summer.

    The good news is that I get to do yoga tomorrow morning (provided my child support hearing doesn't go long).

    I'll be adding yoga to my week when the classes resume on Monday. Looking forward to it, and thinking the stretching will do my hip good. Go us! emoticon
