Jelly Legs

20130717-084526.jpg

Yesterday I completed my first double workout day…

OUCH.

I ran a little under 2.5 miles at 5:45AM, then did a 5:30PM spinning class at LA Fitness. The day before was a leg day so if yesterday afternoon’s hobbling around wasn’t enough… I’ve got plenty of that ahead of me today.

My legs are absolute jello. I swear! I have actually lost my balance and they have buckled awkwardly a couple of times while walking. Using the bathroom when I woke up this morning was quite the challenge.

I am feeling it, big time. But I am SO glad I did it.

I have done spinning classes before, but every instructor is different and it had been a while. I think I did a good job for my first time back on a bike and it was really nice to be in a class with people my age. The last few that I took were at the Y, and I was younger than everyone else in the class by at least 15-20 years. The instructor was so-so and while it was a good workout, I didn’t feel challenged. In this class, everyone was working really hard, the instructor was awesome and it motivated me that much more to push myself to my limits. During my ride I was sweating so much that I was thinking, “hell yea! There goes 20lbs!”

With the combination of my run, my spinning class, and my leg day the day before (squats and stuff), my muscles feel absolutely torn. I love it.

I can’t wait to take another class!

    I have a love/hate relationship with the jello legs. They mean I got a killer work out in, but I usually trip over invisible objects or misjudge corners afterwards. Nice job on the killer workouts!!!
