I love feeling sore muscles!!
I woke up Tuesday morning, and in that not quite awake stage...I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my body. It hurt. Not bad pain, just an overall stiff, soreness.
After a few seconds of "what in the world is going on"...I realized I was just sore from my Jillian workout on Monday. Then I remembered why my right quad was much sorer than my left...that was because I ran laps in our circular pool with Bubba on my back and pulling Sophie on her boogie board.
Then I just laughed, because it has been a while since I felt sore, and because I was going into a run and workout already sore, and I love doing that. It was 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. An early start to a doubled up day. We headed out for another early morning run, then came home and got right into my Jillian workout. It felt great! I have said before I love running on slightly sore legs and abs, it helps me engage the muscles I want to use because I can already feel them. And Jillians workouts are never a peice of cake, but doing one already sore just makes me push that much harder...and make really ugly faces while I'm doing it. I got numerous "mom, you ok?" moments yesterday from the kids.
The great thing is that after 2 days of beatings and running....I am tired today, but not sore. Wednesdays are always my off day unless there is a conflict that requires rescheduling a run, otherwise I'm off. Today I am off. Heading out to take the kids to the dollar movie - Despicable Me, then....nothing...because I am off!
Shout out to Em who did an amazing job on her talk last night. Extemporanious Speaking...really?? She did great though, she always does, but especially last night!
