Pain and Exercise

When it came around time where I really had to get on the treadmill or risk not getting my 'run' in, I was really really stiff. My room-mates suggested I just skip it for the day (as if I even could...) and I said "naw, it's ok, I'll just do a long warm-up" and finally got my ass into gear. Actually, maybe I should thank her for saying that because the idea of not doing it is what made me go and start... ANYWAY

The first 1:30 minutes sucked ass. I was so sure I wouldn't be able to do it at all... then the next 30 seconds was a bit better, and although I was unsure if I could do 5 mph, I did my 4mph... and then the 5mph... and then the 4.. and all the sudden, I had finished a whole interval. The longer I stayed on, the better I felt. So... I thin that's an odd thing about exercise. Why is it that when it's the very thing our body needs to feel better, it is the last thing we want to do? makes no sense to me.

This is really quite good because aside from stiffness my insides have felt funny all day. I think it may be because I haven't had ANYTHING solid for 5 days. Ah well, my body can deal for two more.

Looking back on last month, I do not feel the high cal week was successful (though hey, it's hard to tell since it may have helped boost my metabolism for this month...) BUT, I DO think the 2 days low 1 day high alternating thing was... so I am going to do that for the rest of this month once I'm back 100% on solids.

Low days will be without the fruit/nuts. High days are what are pictured here. I' trying to decide if this should just be a 2x a week thing, or every 3 days... I'm thinking 2x a week so it can happen on weigh in days (post weigh in of course) lol...Thoughts?

I would definitely do it 2x week on weigh-in days. Otherwise I would worry about the impact on my weigh-ins and get frustrated :) But that's just me x

I agree..I would do it 2x a week on weigh in days. =3
Also, I have days like that...where I'm so sore I don't want to do any exercises. Once I actually get going though I feel alot better. Maybe I'm the odd one for that? Lol! But you did great! Keep it up! <3
