Ow! My legs are so sore!

It has been so nice here. The sun has been out and the days have been warm. I look forward to nice weather for two reasons: 1 - I can wear flip flops and 2 - I can workout outside.

On Saturday I worked out at the Reserve. I talk about the Reserve a lot in the Spring and Summer. I spend a lot of time there. I take my walk/jogs there and I also to a lot of hill workouts there. On Saturday I did a hill workout. I never thought I would say this about working out, being outside, and getting sweaty, but it was so amazing. It was so nice to be outside in the sunshine and moving around. I was feeling so cooped up in the gym.

My workout was awesome too. My legs were dead by the time I was done. I could hardly keep my legs functioning to walk back to my car and drive home.

When I woke up on Sunday my calves were soooooo sore. I forgot how sore they got from hopping and running up steps! So naturally, with all that soreness I went for a walk/jog with Janelle on Sunday evening! I was not at all concerned about the soreness in the legs. It was 65 degrees and the sun was shining. I was not going to let a little soreness get in the way of being outside. We managed to get in an hour at the Reserve.

I've missed all the outdoor activities. I'm getting antsy to go outside right now! It's supposed to be beautiful all week. I can't wait for more outdoor workouts. This weather has really put the motivation back into my life! I was feeling pretty touch and go about everything for the past few weeks, but now that I feel like I have a different way to mix up the workouts I'm unstoppable.


  1. Oh Sarsh!! I totally get where you're coming from! I love spring because it makes us that much closer to summer. When I was bigger, I hated being hot and would try and find places with air conditoning. But being outside is so awesome now.
    Great job on getting outside and working out!! Sounds like a nice weekend!

  2. Awesome job on the workouts!! I love/hate being outside. I love it ... but with medical issues.. it is a bummer. AZ just gets a little to hot... and dry... blah. But right now... SO AMAZING!!

    You are so unstoppable!! Keep it up chica!

  3. I love being outdoors! This will be the first summer where I feel physically fitter. I cannot wait for it to begin! Unfortunately living in England, I can only keep my fingers crossed that there will be sun in the summer!
