Yay its Thursday night and its the start of 4 days off!!!! Yippeee!
Ooooh I'm still so sore today from my fabulous leg workout on Tuesday... I'm hobbling around, getting up out of chairs involves me using my arms to hoist myself out of the seat! Love it! My quads arent too bad, the real soreness is coming from my hamstrings.
Having said I love that muscle soreness, it does have its downside... which I found out today. I did my tricep/calf workout this morning (as the gym is closed tomorrow) and I had some bad cramping in my right calf muscle when doing seated calf raises. I kept getting up to stretch, but as soon as I lifted again it cramped like crazy. So I had to drop the weight right back so that I could do it at all, and didn't really get a workout. When it was cramping it went right up from my calf up to my hamstring, so I think perhaps my sore hammies prevented me from doing my best. I've read that magnesium can help with muscle cramps, but I wonder if it had anything to do with my hamstring fatigue. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I have never cramped DURING a training session before.
At work today I had a little mini easter egg, and it really just didn't taste like anything great. So then I had 3 more just to make sure!!! heeheehee! I cant believe I'm saying it, but chocolate just didn't do anything for me today. Maybe tomorrow will be different! lol!
