Exercise: 2 miles on the treadmill and one hour of Yoga.
As I rolled out of bed this morning I was wondering what it was going to feel like when I stood up. I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t so bad. I got myself dressed, brushed my hair and headed downstairs to help with the Boys.
After the Boys were off to school I went to the gym. I managed walking 2 miles on the treadmill before my Yoga class. I couldn’t believe that I didn’t even get a shin-splint. I was so happy! My upper thighs where my hip joints meet on the side were the sorest thing at the time really. No problem. I made it through just fine.
I set off for Yoga class. After about 10 minutes into it my heart was pounding, I was sweating to death, so I stopped. Had a drink, actually a lot to drink and sat in my meditation pose. I sat there and meditated for about 10 or 20 minutes. I lost track of time. I then pulled myself out and started back up with my Yoga practice. I felt replenished a little bit more and my body was much calmer then when I started. I managed to finish the class feeling great!
After coming home, eating and sitting on the computer for a while I noticed my left foot really was sore. Coming upstairs for a couple of hours and laying in my bed and just resting it really seemed to help. Periodically stretching and rubbing it a little.
I was thinking of going to the new power weights class tomorrow morning at 8:30. I think it is called Power Pump. I am going to play that by ear and go with what my body is telling me.
My Husband and I talked about dehydration today. I have never been dehydrated like this before. I guess it can take days to recover. We did stop and grab me a drink with some electrolytes after my work out. It made me pee like crazy, but feel good after a while and 60 ounces of water later.
Tomorrow is another day and a new road. 🙂
