I’ve been sitting at the computer for awhile. Blogging class, chatting with my brother (I’ve added his zazzle store to my sidebar – BarrelX. He’s quite the designer and he focuses on Xtreme sports. Cool stuff.) I wear his stuff all the time.
Anyway, as I went to get up from the computer to head back upstairs, OOOWWWWW. You may have noticed I’m sitting down again.
After a few weeks of intermittent workouts at best, I have gotten in four very solid exercise days. Core/strength training/Zumba on Saturday, swimming on Sunday, core/strength training with the ab killer Monday night and running Tuesday morning.
The Ab Killer was especially energetic Monday night and we worked hard. Even tried out some new stuff on the Pilates bench. I was already sore from the weekend, but the training last night helped stretch that out. I felt good this morning, so I finally got my butt out of bed before the sun came up and headed to the gym. I forgot my iPod and had to go home to get it and then go back to the gym, but I still had time to get in a 2.5-mile run. Good thing the gym is so close.
I felt fine all day. Better than fine. I was feeling toned and strong. Early morning run endorphins are a wonderful thing. They lasted a good part of the day. I sit a lot at work too and I noticed toward the end of the day I was starting to feel a little twingy. But it wasn’t anything too bad.
However, now? Getting up to get ready to go up to bed, everything is sore…from my fingertips to my toes. Ok, the fingertip thing is because I jammed my hand on the wall of the pool Sunday so maybe that one doesn’t count…. but yes, I am aware of pretty much every inch of my body at the moment.
This kind of pain I can deal with. It’s a good hurt. It means I’m pushing my body in a good way. So I’m going to do some light stretching and go to sleep. Tomorrow morning, it’s swim time! And then everything will feel all loose again…for at least a little while.
