For whatever reason, DOMS is always much worse for me 2 days after leg training. I looked hilarious hobbling on the treadmill during ninja cardio this morning. And now every time I need to get up from my desk at work I move like my grandfather, lifting my body off the seat more with my upper body than my lower body.
As usually, I’m wincing at the soreness and laughing at what I do to myself.
It’s interesting though. I am acutely aware of and can feel the centers of each of my leg muscles: my calves, glutes, hams, and three of the four heads of my quads. It’s like having nearly perfect proprioceptive acuity.
I wish my mind-muscle connection on training days was as strong as it is with DOMS.
Trained legs with the pro.
Hit the wall HARD tonight. Completely dead. Legs quivering like they were full of terminates or something. Couldn’t even finish the last set of barbell lunges. Took all the weight off the bar. Switched to bodyweight only. Pushed like I was giving birth to a fucking baby haha. Damn.
I love this.
Today is leg day with the pro. Excitement/dread.
Mo Muscle Mo Problems
So it’s finally starting to warm up here. I’ve begun pulling from the warmer weather/short sleeve side of my wardrobe recently.
And nothing fits.
I seriously tried on like four consecutive shirts Saturday and put three of them in a pile to donate to the thrift shop. Also: I discovered this morning that I’ve outgrown another work shirt. This shirt is straining around the buttons at the top of my chest and my arms are comically filling up the sleeves :-). I don’t look like superman about to bust out of it, but it does look a little silly.
Happy as fuck, but I’ve got a lot of shopping to do now.
Have a great Monday everybody.
Bitch Bitch Bitch…
Shitacular night’s sleep last night. Couldn’t stop thinking about some stuff that’s gone down recently with my parents.
Today’s discovery: leg day sucks even more than usual when you’re sleepy.
C’mon mom and dad. Get it together. If not for the sake of the kids, then at least for the sake of the legs. :-p
Bitch bitch bitch…
Friday. Arms day.
Best day of my week? More like the best day of my life.
Have a great weekend everybody. Fucking kick ASS in the gym this weekend.
