Day 4

Ouch :-(

How are you feeling?

Today I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a bus. My whole body is sore but my upper traps, *glutes and outside quads are the worst. I had a mild headache for most of the day which I’m assuming is either from the tight traps or mild dehydration. (or both)

Luckily though, today was a rest day. I tried to keep moving as much as possible and stretch whenever I could. I take a very simple stretching / yoga session at my work each Monday morning and although I work with a bunch of very stiff boys, I think I was getting the most out of it this morning.

I’m pretty grumpy today – being tired, sore and hungry for most of the day will do that to you :-(

Tomorrow morning I have an 8am session. I have no idea how I am going to get through it with my muscles as sore as they are right now.

*My glutes are possibly from the 100 squats we did yesterday in the warm up! Yep, warm-up.


So what actually causes muscle soreness?  (It’s not actually lactic acid build up)
