Yep THAT Was a Good Idea!

Last Saturday morning I was all snuggled up and warm in my bed. 
Then, I had this idea……

Now I know what you are thinking, "Wow that is a great idea!  Get out there and run that weight off!"  I was thinking the same thing so I went out and hit the pavement hard.  I kept at it for 45 minutes before I decided it was time to call it a day.  I was proud of myself.

(Credit shall go where it is deserved Natalie Dee)
I was feeling so awesome that I forgot that it has been about six year since the last time I went out and jogged.  I also forgot a very important step one must take after working their body so hard, stretching.  So the next day I woke up with a strange feeling, there was hurt.  But more than hurt, there was pain on my hurt and that pain had an ache. I was afraid to look down at my legs for fear they would look like this....

My legs are still sore but the pain has gotten better.  Still I haven't been able to workout at the level I was last week because my legs just hurt so bad.  This is what I get for not being smart about working out.  I just wanted to get out there and be a rock star. 

Lesson learned.


  1. Keep at it! Consider switching to a high-intensity low duration exercise (like sprints). 20 minutes of sprints at 30 seconds to 1 minute sprint interspersed with 1 min to 1 min 30 sec of rest (so a total of no more than 10 sprints) can burn sufficiently more calories in the short term and long term. It's the philosophy behind Dr. Sear's P.A.C.E., or the commonly called H.I.I.T. workouts (High-intensity, interval training).
