Dum-Du-Dum-Dum-DOMS

Holy hell! Last night, I got home and collapsed. At around 3pm I started to feel a little sore. Then, within an hour, like a curtain revealing a cast of actors, my entire body went into shock. I’ve had Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) before, but the worst DOMS is when you haven’t worked out in a while and then you give it your all (like I did two nights ago). All that enthusiasm that I wrote with yesterday is now trapped in the form of Lactic Acid in my muscles. In other words, I AM SO SORE!!!
I was so sore and tired last night that even my husband said, “Babe, you sound really tired!” He never notices such things, so for him to make the observation, I must have been exhausted. There was no way I was going to be able to do that workout again, so soon after doing it for the first time. In reality, I’m not even sure what I was thinking. I think I was just so hyped up because I had so much fun doing it the first time. So long story short, I didn’t work out last night. Nope! I just laid on the couch relaxing like I had just run a marathon. I guess this is my first reminder that it’s important to rest between workouts. Anyways, I’m still sore, but I’m good enough to attempt the workout again tonight. Before I went to bed last night, I told my husband (half asleep) that I was going to tear up the workout today…hahaha! That’s exactly what I’m going to do too!
