Aches and pains ~TJ144

Monday I was aching after the gym, Tuesday I felt fine, this morning ( I felt that I may have had DOMS.


Gradually during the day the ache went – old age and arthritis then says the jury! So off I go all happy to the gym where the treadmill awaits.

Just done a minute on treadmill and laces come undone, I stop the machine and then it won’t restart, not keen anyway so rather than wait for an instructor I jump on the rower. Instead of a hiit I think I know I’ll do 5k I have 38 minutes before I have to leave to collect son from work!

All I can say is ouch ouch ouch, and yay that feels great – I did it. Was flagging a bit and two guys came along and were racing each other so I joined in got the 5k done in 36 min 10 seconds – was very pleased with that and I could feel the sweat despite the arctic air conditioning. I may suffer more tomorrow but that is apparently good, so Steve tells me!


Old age or DOMS? ~TJ143

My legs really ached after gym on Monday, all was OK yesterday but this morning WOW they ache.

Is this DOMS , old age or arthritis or a combination of all three.

Gym tonight we shall see – weight static for three days, this is unusual for me hopefully a sizeable drop to follow

Post 10k ~TJ98

I expected to be tired, have DOMS and loads of little nanobots in fixing my muscles after yesterday – and the temporary weight gain that that brings – but nothing, no pain, a slightly sore ankle is all.

Does this mean I didn’t work as hard as I thought, or does it mean that I am fitter than i thought I was? Or does it mean absolutely nothing and I should stop psycho analysing everything in my life and just accept that sometimes things just are what they are!
