Sore Saturday

in All Posts

Whoa, momma.  You know those mornings \when you wake up and discover that everything is sore from your workout?  My mom and auntie arrived yesterday, and after dinner, we went on a long walk – so I ended up doing two workouts yesterday.  Between the swim and the walk, every inch of me is aching.  But it’s the “hurts so good” feeling; not the “oh, crap – I’m in pain!”  Know what I mean?


My aunt and I were the first ones up, so we sat on the porch and chatted while the sun came up. 


Breakfast is served…



Greek yogurt





On the agenda:  I’m taking the sisters to a fun restaurant, and then we’re going shopping. 


Anyone else sore today?  Or have plans to make yourself nice and sore later?  Smile

    If by sore you mean sitting and watching TV because I just finished all my undergrad work, then yes! I do have plans to be sore 🙂 And I’m baby sitting tonight so that will wear me out

    My fiancé and I are just starting to negotiate the terms of our future family–i.e. who gets to go for a bike rides once a baby is here:-) Are there some “issues” or topics like this that you’d recommend partners talking about before beginning to try for a family?

    I cut the lawn when we were through swimming, and I woke up in my chair at nine…

    Mmm – now that’s my way of doing waffles 🙂 Looks delicious!

    my legs are sore from my run & my arms are sore from doing weights. but yes, it feels great!

    I think that’s one of the best feelings ever! I took a boxing/conditioning class last weekend and was sore until Thursday. Effective!

    Hello! I know exactly what the ‘hurts so good’ feeling is! I just wanted to say thank you for introducing me to Girls on the Run! I ran the race in Phoenix this morning, and I had an absolute blast! I think I’ll try being an assistant next season 🙂

    Thanks again for the information on the amazing experience! I hope all is well, and have a happy belated birthday!

    First off, I’m jealous of the fact you have a porch. I want one SO badly. Just another one of those, “someday”s… You know? As of know we live in apartments and I feel bad getting anything other than a first floor since I do so much jumping with my workouts. Anyways, I also wanted to say your breakfast looks delicious!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats April 28, 2012, 12:26 pm

    Haha I’m feeling sore right now since I just ran a 10 mile race!!!

  • Christa April 28, 2012, 1:25 pm

    I’m definitely sore! My track team did three sets of 4 400’s yesterday! And my coach was planning on us doing four sets at first!

    I’m totally sore from dancing last night and yet I’m going again tonight. So maybe I’m a sucker for punishment? Have a great Saturday!

  • Becca April 28, 2012, 2:33 pm

    I went to Zumba this morning so I don’t think I will be sore. But it was fun 🙂

  • Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon April 28, 2012, 2:37 pm

    It’s so gratifying to feel sore after a workout! My hips, butt, and hamstrings are sore from my legs workout yesterday and I’m about to go for a nice, easy recovery run/bike/walk/tbd to stretch them out.

    Also, blackberries…yum…it’s been so long.

    Enjoy your time with your mom and aunt! Food and shopping sound like the perfect ladies day 🙂

    I’m soooo sore! My shoulders abs thighs and calves are all burning with every step. I know I whooped my own butt in my workout yesterday I’ve been fighting with myself all day whether or not I should workout today or just do a ton of stretching. Option two is looking good!

    And I know those 9+ month pregnant workouts are TOUGH!!! I stuck with a barre method DVD from 32 weeks on ! You can keep pushing girl !

    Not super sore but did our local annual university run today, Crazylegs. We walked a mile or so to the start, then did the 2.1 mile walk with our 14 month in the backpack and a 22 week in utero! Have a great weekend!

  • Laura @ She Eats Well April 28, 2012, 5:26 pm

    I busted out a few sets of pushups this morning while on my run. I am HOPING to be sore tomorrow…something so gratifying about your arms being sore. You know you got a good workout in.

  • Bonnie April 28, 2012, 5:41 pm

    No More Trouble Zones made me sore this morning!

  • Christine @ BookishlyB April 28, 2012, 8:37 pm

    I had a pretty awesome yoga session today- I’m anticipating my arms will be hurting from so many plank to up dog to down dog moves.

  • Claire April 28, 2012, 10:01 pm

    I’m sore from the 30km I did yesterday. Just busted out a 7km recovery run and that has helped. On the taper now for Great Ocean Rd Marathon on 20 May.

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed April 29, 2012, 10:30 am

    I’m SO sore today because I ran my first 10 miler yesterday!!! I hope you have a great shower today and enjoy the family time 🙂

  • mary @ minutespermile April 29, 2012, 12:12 pm

    I am SORE! 13 mile run + bootcamp is a lot, but the dance floor last night is what actually kicked my butt the most. happy weekend!
