Oh my legs….

I hurt, from head to toe but mostly my legs. From skiing to my work out today. Oh a bit much but 1000 calories burned today. I jogged/ran 3 full miles in 33:11 minutes, rode 7.5 miles on the bike in 34:28 minutes, did the weight circuit and then swam 12 laps in 40 minutes. I was at the gym from 7:15 to 10:00. Tomorrow I can go again after work since I’m done by 4:30. To do it all over again. I did take an extra walk this afternoon to go with Phase 5, went to the creek and back about 1/3 of a mile. A bit of extra stretching since I am so sore.

Tomorrows a new day, some pretty tasty meals coming especially with the baked potato, I love tators.

I hope all is well with everyone. Hope those on day 1 of the challenge did well. For those just changing their life styles, you go people. May this year be the year that this great world of ours is becoming more healthy then it’s ever been.

Take care and God Bless!!!

P.S. Gonna go try some sports cream. I can’t take pain relievers so gotta do something about these muscles. OUCH!!!

Holy Guacamole! Make sure you have some type of rest day for your muscles to rejuvenate! By resting, the muscles will rebuild and help prevent injury!

Take care,
Shawn

Try about 20-30 minutes of some nice relaxing stretches...should do the trick!

Oh My what a work out! Good for you though. I take *Triple Flex* It works wonders and it took away my shin pain.
Nice hot bath might help too. :)

Julie,
You've motivated me. I've been making time for myself and have been to hot yoga every day for the past four days.
I read you and everything you are doing, and I don't know how you manage, but you go girl!
