Bringing it

This morning began far less dramatically than yesterday. Thank goodness. I'm sore and stiff from my left shoulder all the way to my butt, and the pain in my back still requires some drugs to allow me to sit comfortably, but I don't feel as though I've done any serious damage. Which is just as well, because today marks the start of my new program from Liz, and no way was I delaying that!

So I was at the gym bright and early for my first training session. I have to admit, I was a bit apprehensive about running - I really wasn't sure that I'd cope, what with the back pain and all. But I figured I'd give it a go and if it felt wrong, I'd back it off and walk instead. Luckily, running didn't hurt any more than walking does, so I got through my cardio workout without any dramas, and moved onto upper body.

The Mistress of Pain has assigned me 20-rep sets for this week. Geez, Louise! I haven't done 20-rep sets for... hell, I don't think I've ever done them. I picked super-light weights and still struggled. :/ My arms feel like they don't belong to me, and I'm anticipating some nasty DOMS tomorrow.

Ah well, no pain, no gain. Watch me blitz this thing!

20 reps is so much more than 15!! Keep up the good work- I need your inspiration!
