The good kind of sore muscles

This past Sunday, I had every intention of going for a run while Lorelai napped. And then the lure of my couch, my computer and my comfy pants won out and I bailed. But then I got mad at myself because there was a Becky-shaped butt print in my couch and I just felt blah.

Monday rolled around, and since Adam and I were both working from home with the kids for MLK day, I decided to just take the afternoon off from work. I couldn't come up with a legit reason NOT to run, so run I did. I think the key that day was that I got dressed for the day in my running gear, so all I had to do was throw on shoes and go.

It was a gorgeous day for running--not too hot or too cold--so Adam took the kids out to play while I waved to them on each of 3 laps around my neighborhood, for a total of a little over 3 miles. I did C25K week 4, but at the end of the program, I was still feeling good so I did another mile(ish)!


But DUDE was I sore on Tuesday. It was the good kind of sore though. Made me feel like I got a good workout, but I was still mobile (although I visibly limped down the hall at work on a couple of occasions after sitting for too long and getting crazy stiff...).

And I even did some yoga and a couple of those exercise sportskool Thin in 10 programs a couple more days throughout the week. Go me!

Could it be that I'm finally back in the swing of things with working out?! I sure hope so, because I hate starting all over again.

  1. Thanks for linking up Becky...haha "becky shaped butt print"...omg do I have those days. Lately, though, it's in front of the computer as I go crazy with this blogging thing!

    I am so so with you on the stop quitting and starting over...I have even featured that exact photo to yell at myself with publicly...but alas, everytime life steps in and gets in the way, and it's either start over or never do it again. Given those options, I feel pretty good about what I end up choosing!

  2. Good for you to have those intentions during nap time! You're on the right track!

  3. That run looked gorgeous! Wish we could have some 59 degree temps to run in!

  4. Slightly jealous of your milder weather... It's so flippin' cold here that I worry about taking the kids out in it... Missing our walks downtown and ready for Spring in thee worst way ever!! Glad you enjoyed your run! ;)

  5. You go girl! I think I want to start running (omg, I never thougth I would EVER say that). I'm still taking the Bar Method classes and most of the girls there have the most amazing bodies - it totally makes me want to get off my ass more. :-) I'm getting toned up, but I need to do some cardio to actually shed any fat. We'll see...

    1. Go for it! I really do recommend the couch to 5k program, and there are even some free apps for it. Good luck!
