DOMS, DOM, DOM, DOMSSSS…

 

What the heck am I  even talking about?

 

Why, Delayed Onset Muscle soreness of course! And yes, I have had it all week!

 

DOMS happens when we workout – essentialy we’re creating little micro-fiber tears in our muscles particularly when we strength train. After the Women’s Half was cancelled last week, I decided to take it as a sign that the race just wasn’t meant to be instead of training on the ever-lingering tendonitis in my left heel. That means, it’s BACK to Insanity and BACK to lifting again – it’s been over at least 3 months since I’ve lifted so this was a true WAKE UP CALL to get back back in it!

 

It’s really hard to get re-adjusted to the world of being able to do strength training and circuit training instead of feeling like I have to run 3-4 days a week like clockwork. Do I miss running? Of course I do, but I enjoy getting out there and running because I WANT to not because I HAVE to and being able to throw in some intervals so that I’m still getting in my beloved HIIT training. Don’t forget I have workout A.D.D. 😉

I mostly feel some soreness in my back and traps from working on pull-up. I have a pull-up assist band, which is helping, and I’m just about there to doing a full pull-up on my own! Yay for little victories!  Triceps and chest are used to the bazillion pushups I do weekly in class as I teach, so it’s not a balancing act to get all of the muscles to work together – and PLAY NICE! I’m trying to get acquainted with the squat rack because I haven’t used that bad boy pretty much EVER! It’s a little nerve-wrecking to use your core to balance, but I’m starting to get the hang of it! After visiting the Reebok HQ  this month, I began to realize I needed to venture out more into the realm of FITNESS in general to test myself with some new workouts and ways to challenge my body!
