I love feeling sore. Not so sore that I can't stand up from sitting, but just that nice sore feeling where you know you've worked. After yesterdays elliptical jaunt, I can feel the soreness in my glutes. And for the past week and a half, my shoulders have been really sore as a result of the circuit training combined with the Strength Toning class.
Really sore. And they feel really heavy.
I considered this when walking into pilates today, but you never know what the ab-ripper will do in class. I was hoping she wouldn't do planks, but I knew she probably would. We started with a lot of balance work. I really like that part of class, probably because I feel really strong. My balance is pretty good, which is surprising because my abs are so weak. But it didn't take us long to get into the nitty gritty. She had us do some of the exercises with the ball including planks. As I held my plank, my arms were shaking. Once we finished, they were screaming! It was a good class, and I was happy to be back after missing last week.
After leaving there, I had promised to meet Tangila in the gym to show her the circuit training. She caught on very quickly, and I'm sure she'll be rocking it in no time. Either that or she'll be cursing at me under her breath. Or maybe she'll be doing both!
She'll probably be doing both. My deltoids are.
