I went back to the gym Wednesday, and I have been suffering ever since. I cut back on the repetitions, and went easy (I thought) and geeze I have been in agony. My chest is killing me (pushups) and I thought my legs were going to collapse from under me when I got off at the dam yesterday. Why on earth am I doing this I asked myself.
Well today provided the answer. I had crosswinds that shook me, had me looking to see if I had a flat tire, and generally beat me up. I was hanging on tight and pedaling like mad to go 29 kms/hr downhill this morning, into an impressive headwind. All I could think was “thanks heavens I am strong, thanks goodness I have been working my upper body”.
So I will recover over the weekend, and back to the gym on Monday. Strong matters.
