Getting back to the gym does not feel great. In fact, being back is downright painful!
The boyfriend and I finally got to the gym last night. It was so tough getting into working out. I was really lazy. I had the worst headache. But I still had to get my butt in there and continue on with some exercise.
I went ahead and did 30 minutes on the cross ramp (I still love that machine!). Then I thought I'd mix it up and try out the stair master. Ohmygoodnessgracious! That thing literally beat me up. I could only last 7 minutes on it. My legs were seriously on fire throughout those entire 7 minutes. And I was out of breath. On level 1. It was pitiful. But at least it was a start.
I finished out the rest of my 23 minutes on the treadmill, no incline. My legs were still burning up so I decided to just walk it out.
Am I only one who gets their butt handed to them on the stairmaster? Is it really that hard or am I just being a weenie (an out of shape one at that)??
My calves are killing me today. So, so sore. But it's back to the gym tonight. The good thing is it is a weight day, so a little less cardio. My legs will be thanking me tomorrow.
