This is kind of twisted, but, one of my most favorite feelings is sore abs.
It means one of two things: great sex, or a great workout.
Monday evening I decided it was time to do something about the discontent that I feel when I look in the mirror. I understand that there are people that would be happy to have my body. I get that. But, that doesn’t mean that my feelings toward my body are not real.
they are real.
they are very real.
I put together a small circuit workout that I wanted to complete on Tuesday morning. You can check it out here.
That workout made me sore.
It feels lame to be so sore from such a mediocre workout.
I mean, there was not really intense about it, but I worked muscles that don’t get worked with running.
I meant to wake up early this morning and do 30 Day Shred, or some kind of work out..and then I slept through the alarm for over an hour – so working out didn’t happen.
My quads are sore. I have no idea why since the only thing on that circuit workout involving my legs was jumping jacks.
I considering not running today since my legs were sore, but when I got off work I was really itching to run.
I told myself it was okay to do an easy run – I didn’t want to focus on my pace – I just wanted to crank up some music and get my run on. and I did.
and it felt so good.
runs like this remind me why I love running. it was just a little bit hot in the sun, but felt perfect in the shade. I could breath easily, my legs felt great (despite the sore quads) and I was just happy to be running.
