My birthday came and went, leaving me one year older! Thanks to Backwards Aging, I certainly don’t feel older; in fact, I feel quite a lot younger than my 68 years.
This evening, though, I’m feeling a little sore around the hip/waist area in particular. And why?
I’ve been working out on my new ‘rower’. Yeah!
It arrived the day before my birthday and took an hour or so to assemble. I couldn’t wait to get started.
The C.C. had advised I shouldn’t row for more than 2mins at any one time. This sure made me want to prove them wrong. But, as usual, they were right; I used muscles I don’t think I’ve ever used.
Within a couple of days of rowing 2mins times 3 over a half hour period, my little body was definitely feeling it… Yeah again!
Am I the only one who loves the pain of sore muscles? Am I a masochist? Do I need to hang up my delight? Please let me know if you too love the feeling of a great muscle exercise; I need a little comforting…
So, it’s been one week of rowing on my rower. I luvvvvv it. I also luvvvv it because now, with the muscle soreness and stiffness, comes the need to stretch… Another YEAH!
I love yoga, so, you guessed it; I’m now doing yoga, too. I’m just hopping onto youtube and joining in on a video; there are absolutely so many choices.
(I’d say yeah again, but, I don’t want to overdo it!!!)
What about you? Do you love/hate exercise? Does the word send you to the kitchen for a little ‘reassurance’? Do you enjoy a little reward like an extra biscuit because, after all, you’ve just been exercising; something I do all the time! 🙂
