After taking several days off to recover my muscles and my energy, I was back to the exercise today. First, I have to say, it felt really good to wake up in the morning and not have anything hurt. I even got out of bed in the morning without groaning. That was definitely a good thing.
But, today, I had a personal training session, and back into my routine I went. First, I did forty minutes of intervals on the elliptical. Just as I got off the elliptical, the doorbell rang. The next hour was so many exercises I can't even think to name them all. By the time she left, my muscles were shaking. I did make sure to get a good stretch in. Hopefully that will help.
And, just because I really love it, I went to yoga tonight. It was a slower class tonight, and I really wanted a good stretch. So, that part felt good. There were several sequences that were challenging, but that was good, too. Overall, it was a great class, and I'm glad I went.
But, after going for several days with no exercise, my body definitely feels like it's in shock. But, it's a good exhaustion. And, I am grateful for the fact that I could do it all.
Exercise: 2 hours, 40 minutes between elliptical, training, and yoga
Gratitude: Being able to get back to exercise
