Trading Places: My Big Mouth (Wednesday, August 19th, 2009)

And once again, I open my big mouth… I’d like to say “Wow, I feel great! My workout was super! My body feels like a million bucks!” But, I would be lying out the wazoo.  I freaking hurt from the traps to my toes.  It hurts to cough, it hurts to sneeze; it hurts to laugh.  I can’t stand up or sit down without a groan, and frankly anything other than lying still causes some sort of ache… GIVE ME DRUGS, PLEASE.

So, I’m guessing Pirtle read yesterday’s blog… We went non-stop for 50 minutes.  And ya know, I felt pretty optimistic during almost the entire workout.  I felt like I was giving a 110% but physically, I guess my body was wearing down.  By the time we got to the last exercise, I was a balancing disaster.  My legs were noodles before it was all over (the sprint intervals, that felt “so great” yesterday, yeah, hurt like hell today… It didn’t help the situation!).

I ended up doing my 30 minutes of cardio on the bike because I was worried that if I tried doing cardio standing up, I’d end up falling down.  Afterwards, I rolled out my legs, which had a lot more knots than I had imagined, and I went home.

After I had a post workout snack, I CRASHED on my couch.  It wasn’t a long nap, but it was one of those deep sleeps where you wake up not knowing where you are, what time of day it is or how you ended up on the couch.  To make it worse, I fell asleep in a very awkward position which just complemented the soreness that was already taking over my body.

Tomorrow is a cardio day, and I may break it up in to two-15 minute high intensity sessions, because there is no way on earth I will last for 30 minutes straight… Friday morning is bootcamp.  I REALLY hope this soreness is gone by then!  As for tonight, I’m going to ice down the knee, pop some ibuprofen or Tylenol, lay in bed, and hopefully watch the Cardinals win against the Dodgers.

Until next time,
