I've been so sore all day that I have literally done nothing. As of this writing, I have managed less than 2,500 steps according to my Fitbit. It's 6 pm, people. I'm also still in my pj's.
My abs hurt. My chest hurts. My neck hurts. I am one big ball of sore. Yet as soon as my husband gets home, I'm going for my scheduled recovery run - and as I look over the list of exercises I did with Aaron yesterday, I can't help but grin a little.
I am not a "gym rat." I do not enjoy "working out." At all. I'd rather run and do nothing else, but I know that doing other things will benefit my running (not to mention my overall health), so I'm giving it a go.
For the record, here's what I did yesterday:
60 raised leg crunches w/10 lb weight
60 (each leg) 1 legged Jack Knives
30 leg raises
60 cross body mt climbers
60 dumbell rows (20 lbs)
60 deadlifts (20 lbs)
1 set (12) Smith Push Ups
45 seated rows (35 lbs)
30 reps knee raises on Power Tower
45 reps row twist (25 lbs)
Hardest for me were the leg raises and the jack knives. The last set of knee raises were hard, too. My core is so weak that I was pulling with my neck during the jack knives, and by the end, I was near tears (out of frustration).
