Soreness monster

Posted in Rest and Recovery by Mike on November 29, 2006

It seems that ever since I have returned to the gym, I have been beaten up by the soreness monster. Dunno why, I’m gonna go back and review  my old logs a bit but once again, I’m pushing off my workout by a day to allow my body to recover. My legs feel like massive slabs of electricity. I don’t know if sitting all day has to do with it. Today I actually had to stand for about four hours, it doesn’t seem to have helped so I’m thinking no. I’m taking my vitamins, mult vit and fish oil. That has helped in the past. I’m seriously considering bringing back the protein shake. I haven’t used these in quite some time. I have been thinking about reintroducing it for a variety of reasons but have held off due to the calories.
I have noticed that I have been really hungry about 9 am, it has caused me to resort to eating some less than healthy things some days, other days I just lament the wait for lunch hour :-). I’m thinking about putting the protein there. That would leave me with Cut oats for breakfast, protein about 3 hours later, 3 hours later lunch, three hours later a piece of fruit and/or yogurt, then four hours later dinner. That seems like an aweful lot of food when I write it down.


Saturday is definitly off. At least I can garuntee this won’t happen next year.

    Sorry to hear it Mike – I kept hoping some miracle might happen and you could make it – I’m sure we’ll have a nice write-up telling what all went on.

    I’m really sorry I have had to miss this weekend. I look forward to hearing about it. I was hoping to find some more lifts to work on with this.
