Oh golly gee... This was NOT the way I expected this week to end (especially since I didn't have to work on Thursday, Friday or Saturday). Well, as you can see, during my Wednesday lunch break I did hills. We have a huge staircase near the store, so I decided to climb the stairs for the 30 minutes. Sure, my legs were like jello afterwards (and maybe a bit during), but thought I'd be fine... Well, Thursday the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) kicked in BIG time. My quads felt like rocks and my calves were so stinkin' tight. I decided to ride the bike so I could give my legs a break from running and pounding. I thought I'd be able to get out on Friday, but I was still walking like Frankenstein so thought I'd take a complete rest day, hoping I'd feel better Saturday morning. As you can see, I was able to just a little jogging. I drove over to a flat trail, figuring my calves and quads would do better without much elevation change. When I started jogging I was still super tight, but figured I'd give it a mile to loosen up... It didn't. I turned around at the half mile and "ran" back to the truck. My stomach was also not happy, so it was better to pull the plug. Here's to hoping my legs will feel better soon.

How were your workouts this past week?
