Today was a great day, but it was also really scary. And painful. The gym I go to has a barbell based strength training class several times a week. I've never wanted to attend it, because I've been afraid of the barbell part. I did try it once, but I just wasn't ready. Today, I decided to try it again. It was still hard, but I did much better. What I think is good about the class is that it's lighter weights, with many reps. It's pretty much the opposite of my Monday class that uses high weights and fewer reps. I think the combination will be a great synergy in my program. So, I'll be adding this class to my schedule as often as I can.
So, the morning was pretty wonderful. When I got home from the gym, I felt pretty good. I spent most of the afternoon watching a web broadcast of an autism summit. It had some really good information, but I was getting restless just sitting and watching. So, when it was done, I decided to go for a walk.
Steve warned me that I shouldn't do the full 5k path. But, did I listen? No, I didn't. I should have. My legs were still tired after the class this morning. I guess all those lunges tired me out more than I realized. By the time I got back home, my feet and legs were killing me. I took an Epsom salt bath this evening, but I'm not sure if it helped or not. Tomorrow is going to be an easy day.
