Being sore…..sucks. I hate it. And I was sore this weekend, really sore. I started to feel it Friday evening after my deadlifts….not even the next day….that frickin night!!! I was not happy. I mean, the soreness was a pain in the bum especially since I had to spend the entire next day working and sitting in uncomfortable chairs. But, it also made me feel like this lady.
I feel weak and pathetic. Like I’m not working hard enough or doing the right things. It makes me lose confidence in my ability and my level of strength. I would prefer to avoid it all together. I realize that sometimes it’s necessary because you need to push through workouts that are different and more challenging. I’m hoping that was the case on Friday and that it wasn’t that I was just a weakling.
Today is a bench workout. It will be my first full bench day with my new trainer. The workout sounds doable, but tough. I’m just hoping I can get through it at all the specified weights. I don’t want to have to drop down again. Failure is no fun.
I had the full weekend off from working out though. I’m still trying to decide if it was nice, or if it makes me feel lazy. Today I feel lazy, but hopefully that will change after my workout tonight. I have a lot of cleaning and laundry to do when I get home, so I’m hoping my arms will at least work when I’m done.
