Yesterday I was a bit bummed because I couldn’t make it to my class but instead of just giving up and parking it on the couch I decided to do my own mini workout. I had limited time so I wanted to make sure that what I was doing was effective. I found a video demonstrating various exercises geared toward women and strength training and I decided to give it a shot.
I’m still getting used to strength training and this video used a lot of dynamic movement, so I chose a 10# set of dumbbells to get me through. The workout was intense but the side effect of sore arms is what has me smiling. For the second time this week I’ve done a really intense workout and I’ve been super sore the next day. Super sore, but still smiling.
I NEVER thought I’d be one of those people who enjoy the burn of a good workout or the soreness the next day. That just seemed weird to me. Now, I have to admit that I’m quickly becoming one of those people and it’s kind of freaking me out. 🙂
No pain, no gain!
