I had a little pity party for myself last night. I got home from work and I felt tired, cranky and sore. I watched the last two episodes of NCIS while I iced my legs, ankles and hips.
Fat Kitty helped me ice. 😉 So I was wallowing a bit last night.
“How can I be this sore and achy when I only run 2 times a week?”
“Other people run every day and don’t seem to have these issues.”
“Maybe I’m NOT a runner.”
“Maybe I should quit running.”
“I’ll never be able to compete in the Las Vegas Half.”
“Is the Foam Roller making things WORSE instead of better?”
Blah blah blah….you see where my mind was going. Then I thought back and looked at my workout calender…Yep. I’d exercised (intensely) for 6 days in a row.
6 DAYS IN A ROW? No wonder I was tired, cranky and sore! And my first Brick Workout was in there, too. Silly. So today I am resting. And possibly tomorrow too.
Last night I made a concoction of leftover chicken, veggies and quinoa for dinner.
I steamed the veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini).
QUESTION: How do you feel if you exercise too often?
