I must say I’m pretty excited about the Packers winning the Super Bowl. I’m not from Wisconsin, and I have not been a life long Packers fan. However, growing up in Michigan with the Lions….you almost had to branch out a bit. I also have family in Wisconsin and let me tell you…that whole thing about bleeding Green and Yellow….that’s no joke. Packer fans are a pretty devoted bunch! I’ve even been lucky enough to a go couple of Packers games. Yep, Lambeau Field is awesome.
Me and my honey at a game in ’09!
I swear this is a real Packer player….We ran into him after the game we went to in ’08. Fun times!
It was a great ending to a really rough week last week. I had a cold that just wouldn’t quit. AND…I was seriously sore. My squat workout Wednesday had me crippled for the rest of the week. I got through my workout fine on Thursday because it was all upper body. But by the time I woke up on Friday….my legs hurt so much I wasn’t even sure if I was going to be able to get out of bed. And my cold did not respond well to three full days back at work. So I buckled. I didn’t work out on Friday or the rest of the weekend.
My legs were so sore that if my fiancé even touched my quads, I was through the ceiling. This brought up a good point though. Why were my quads so sore, but my glutes weren’t sore at all? My glutes should be heavily involved in a hard squat workout, but they obviously weren’t. That’s not good. So next time, I’m going to have to think really hard about getting all Nacho Libre up in there.
I’m hoping to have a much better week in the gym this week. Right now I’m honestly feeling like getting back into a groove is going to be a bit of an uphill battle.
