As I write this post I can feel every single muscle in my entire body because they are all making my body hurt. This is the result of not going to the gym for a week, and then returning to do a 2 hour session completely pushing myself to the limit. I mean I know that the body needs some time to build itself up after a period of relative inactivity, but I honestly did not think that by being away from the gym for a week I would cause myself so much pain.
Anyway as I sit there cycling away on the bike machine I see these words stuck up on the wall of my gym: “A better you starts with a better body”. With my heart pounding in my chest and sweat slowly making its way down the side of my face I get a bit of encouragement to push myself through the uncomfortable feeling exercise seems to always arise in me. My body does not feel like cycling for 30 minutes but I know that in the long run it will be better for me. In fact the strange thing is, when I am not at the gym for sometime I get withdrawal symptoms and can physically and emotionally feel that I need to shake my body up. I get slightly irritated and uptight, I am unable to think as clearly and creatively and just feel fat. Even though it doesn’t feel like it when you are doing it, exercise is great.
Get to it!
