In addition to my workout sessions I’ve been participating, this month, in the 30 Day Squat Challenge.
My boyfriend and I had seen it on Facebook and decided to go for it. The first day wasn’t so bad. 50 squats is no biggie. And, although I could feel a little soreness the next day, I felt good. It wasn’t until that night and the following day that I felt like I got hit by a truck.
Hey, I’m used to vigorous workouts and doing squats – I’ve completed Insanity twice – but I still felt quite a biit of stiffness and soreness after the first couple of days. But it’s good. It means that I worked it. I made the effort and I continued. Today is a rest day but last night I completed 140 squats while at the gym and even tho I’m feeling the burn and getting a work out with this challenge, I haven’t had that initial soreness again.
After last night’s 140 squats and 3 hour gym session, I woke up this morning with cramped calves so I am being smart and doing yoga tonight. I am definitely looking forward to to stretching and bending and relaxing all the muscles I
terrorized worked yesterday.
