When I awoke this morning, I began a detailed assessment of the damage done by yesterday's inaugural Shred. Wiggled my finger, no pain. Wiggled my toes, so far so good.
But it all went down hill from there.
There is not a single part of my body that does not register pain when moved. My neck is stiff, my back is sore, my arms throb even sitting here at the table typing, my legs screamed in protest when I made them walk up three -THREE!- stairs from the back door. Jillian Michael's worked me over good.
Will I go back for more?? Absolutely! As much as it hurts right now, I know that's what it takes to change my body and get in shape. Yet as stoic as that sounds, I do reserve the right to whine and complain about it for as long as it hurts... so for the next 30 days at least!
However, I won't bore you with daily woe-is-me-and-my-aching-self posts. I've decided to limit such fitness-induced navel gazing to once each week. I'm thinking of adding a Mr. Linky so that others can easily share their Shred journeys with
Any thoughts? Am I getting a bit too big for my britches thinking I could host a Mr. Linky carnival? Would it just be me, Tia, and Lou (Who WILL be continuing with the Shred! We made a deal, lady... I've got your address, remember?? I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE.)? What about you, Anna? You could link up your Workout Wednesday posts?
Maybe I'll try it for a few weeks STARTING THIS FRIDAY and see how it goes. I know I'll feel pretty silly/sheepish/lame if no one participates so please play along. ANY fitness related post written ANY day this last week is eligible.
Now I'm off to figure out Mr Linky.
Which will take awhile seeing as I'm typing with my nose.
