So Today is day 3 of the squat pain from the squat ladder ... usually for me the 2nd and 3rd days are the worst and after that no pain. Lately I feel like I have been flinging myself towards things in order to avoid walking because that hurts. Like If I need to sit on the couch I fling my self towards it to avoid walking ..hahaha I still love Squats!
Anyways I walked in this morning to the 6am class and Andy was asking if we were feeling pain from the squats and we were all, “Yes…it hurts lets do some stretches”...so we do stretches and Andy comments that we should do remedial training, and I was like ok cool that probably means that we are going to work out our arms, abs, back…etc..my thoughts were WRONG :(
Instead after the warmup Andy writes 4 yes 4 rounds of 500m rowing sprints all while smiling from ear to ear! I told him after class that I wanted to read his workout log today…it’s not fun rowing with the squat pain legs. So after round 2 I felt like I need Pukie for the first time ever…I asked Tanya to bring it closer because I felt I was going to hurl mid row… luckily it did not happen… This was hard and every stroke really hurt my legs as rowing is all legs and man I felt at the end like I was hit with a large truck…I almost need Pukie again at the end but Alyssa made Pukie go away by applying some pressure on one of my arm pressure points (Thanks Ayssa).
Overall for the workout I started out ok strong. I think I would have done better if I did not hurt so bad, but by the end of the workout I actually had improved from my second and third rounds.
Now I can’t walk…Thanks Andy!
