I swear strength training knocks me on my ass harder than doing aerobics any day. I did 35 minutes yesterday of Yoga and Strength Training. And while I broke a sweat and felt the burn, my muscles weren't sore.
Well that was yesterday.
Today, my muscles, especially my arms, are sore. I think I hear the mutterings of my planned demise but that could be the heat talking. But I'm glad I'm sore -- it means I did it right and that it will work. I especially love that my tummy muscles are tender because that's one of my main target areas (who am I kidding? My whole body is... but I digress).
So I will happily do my aerobics today and quiet down the rumblings of a muscle revolution. And hope I'm not as sore tomorrow when I do the Yoga and Strength Training routine again.
