Ugh. I slept like crap last night.
After a weekend of pushing it hard during a 5K on Saturday and then running 8 miles on Sunday, I started the week off on Monday with a tough cardio workout followed by some upper body work. Sounds great right?
Well, then DOMS set in. That damn DOMS! Ugh!!
Normally, I love the soreness that comes after a tough workout (or four). It's a nice reminder of a job well done. But last night the total body muscle soreness kept waking me up and then preventing me from falling back to sleep.
Oh, I can't entirely blame the DOMS. I also get my period and a nasty sore throat. Is it Friday yet? :(
I had planned on doing some speed work this morning. I was going to take control of my body and tell it who was really in charge, but the fitness center at my complex wasn't open at 6:15 - even though it was supposed to open at 5am.
Now, I'm going to have to try and motivate myself to get it done after work. *fingers crossed*
Since my workout plans were thwarted this morning, I have a few minutes to share with you something very exciting!!
