Sometimes I think when I let myself actually rest -things catch up with me. Since Scott is away and I can’t go to boot camp — I have been sleeping in and hanging with the kids since I am on vacation. But it seems like I am more tired and man this soreness is worse than usual. I must have really pushed myself hard on Monday because I seriously am in pain! It hurts when I bend down to pick something up, when I go to lift something and just when I move my legs. I did some serious squats and power clean presses I guess! Who knew??!! I think that so often I operate at full speed handling my life that when I finally slow down — it all catches up with me so makes me wonder if it’s worth slowing down at all.
I want to get out today and do something in the realm of exercise so Nate and I are headed to the school where we will run on the track there. He wants to race me because he says he’s way faster than I am. He told me we both need a practice round so we can evaluate how fast we are — The running will hopefully loosen up my sore muscles. Just because my routine is changed, doesn’t mean it’s a free pass to goof off when it comes to being active and fit! You just need to get creative with what you can do!
Monday – I took a later boot camp, hired the babysitter for 1.5 hours and had my workout
Tuesday – I went to my basement and did the elliptical although not for as long as I would have liked because I was so sore
Wednesday – heading to the local school to run around the track with the kids
All of what I posted above are things we all can do to fit in exercise – when our routine changes! While not boot camp intensity, it still gets the job done!
