Oooouch! My Muscles!

Well, I am proud of my 5K ride yesterday morning, and I had all the good intentions of going out again this morning and maybe doing the same but wow, who beat me with a baseball bat in my sleep. I swear, all my muscles are sore, I think even me ears hurt! So, needless to say, I stayed in bed this morning. Am slowly straightening my self out and what was supposed to be a 6am 5K will more likely be a 6pm 5k but I'll get that ride in today if it's the last thing I do!

I've trained enough in the past to know it's a good pain, but I have been idle for far too long and I had forgotten what it was like!

Cheers,

Eric...

Every friday i go to the gym and over do it. afterwards i am still feeling very good and expect that i should be able to go out in the morning..... wrong. i too knows how it feels to feel like someone took a bat to my body while i slept. by the time i rolled out of bed i was already late, but i now work 5 minutes away from home so i was only 20 minutes late

Oh well, as long as you know the difference between good pain and bad pain. Used to be a wrestler in highschool, played alot of racquet sports and extreme stuff when I was younger. So I can guage the nature of pain quite well. This is good pain, so I'll give it a little rest and head out tonight instead on this morning.

Cheers,

Eric...

Gotta love that pain! Take an easy recovery ride and your muscles will thank you. I've found that consistency is better than distance every time.

It's actually a funny pain as it makes me laugh every time I move. I can't believe that I let myself get into this shape. It's not that bad, just couldn't have seen myself riding at 6am this morning. I'll go for a stretch, a quick recovery ride and then possibly hit a sauna. That is one of the best things about living here in Korea. The public baths are everywhere, nice, cheap and a way of life. The only thing better would be to have a hottub in my appartement, but I don't think the neighbors would appreciate that. Plus this way, I get 10 hot tub, steam rooms and my son gets to splash around too. He just loves the water.


Cheers,

Eric...

Good job on at least getting started. I did the same thing to myself last Friday. I have not done weights in years and had a personal trainer put me through the ringer. I thought that I would ride Saturday, but woke up in the morning so stiff I had trouble walking. Needless to say, pain goes away and you'll be better off for your efforts.
