Starting the Jillian Michaels: 30 Day Shred on my day off from running was definitely an irrational idea. How hard can it be? 20 minutes, no problem. . .(I now know why people throw up on the Biggest Loser).
That Jillian Micheals, she's a sadistic bitch, I tell you! (Okay, without the degrading part of the definition of sadistic...and I'm sure I'll come to appreciate her.) I thought my legs were in pretty good shape from running. WRONG!!! My legs are Jell-O now! And my arms! Those five-pound weights felt more like twenty by the end. (Mental note: go buy three pound dumbbells tomorrow.) How am I going to run tomorrow?!? I must stick with it! These last few pounds just don't want to go so it's time to scare them away with Jillian!
All day I could feel the pain! My thighs and my shoulders progressively stiffening up through the day. . .Getting harder to stand up and sit down. What do I do? Go for a run!
Running on pavement instead of a treadmill is definitely different. I can run 5k on the treadmill, but throw me outside and I'm dying after 90 seconds. (Thankfully Color Me Rad is not a serious 5k but I still want to work my way up.) My legs were okay but. . .
Oh sh!t! I can't get into the sitting position, then once I do, I can barely stand back up. Never mind going down the stairs. Pain! I have to pee, but how do I place my a$$ on the toilet seat? Holy crap, I keep telling myself it will be better in the morning. If it's not, there may be a break from any activity tomorrow.
P.S. I bought the three-pound dumbbells today.
