Third-Day Pain

My triceps still hurt. Not as much, but enough that I brushed my teeth left-handed again this morning.

Clearly, this is an exercise I need to do again, but with CONSIDERABLY LESS WEIGHT AND REPS. CONSIDERABLY.

I plan to do cardio tonight, if nothing else. I skipped the gym last night.

I didn't do any reading last night, except picture books to The Maw. Including one she wanted me to read backwards. Not backwards one word at a time, but one page at a time. This was a great success.

This is from last year's Yuletide, but I didn't read it until this year. Barrayar Expects That Every Fan Will Do Their Duty: Excerpts From A Fandom by Lanna Michaels. Meta meta meta! And very, very fanthropological. (BTW, the interior links, sadly, do not lead to the imaginary fannish material for the imaginary show about Barrayar.) I found it fascinating.

I find second day pain really common, and much worse, when I'm doing an exercise really new to me.

Wow, I miss exercising.

I think the "new to me" was the biggest part of it. The pain is lessening this afternoon.

Yeah, I've learned for myself that I need to do *something* that first day after a new workout that at least gets me warmed up and stretched out if I want to have any hope of being able to move on days 2 or 3.

I think I was a little too enthusiastic with both reps and weight amounts myself the other night, though of course it was totally fine at the time. Last night was 24 hours since the weight lifting and I went to a class that's a combination of Pilates and Yoga. It was the first time I can ever remember not being able to do ab work - not because my abs hurt, but because my legs did. Still, ugly as it was, I'm certain that last night's workout is helping with today's mobility.

The sad thing is that I did some elliptical and stretched the following day. I think I needed to stretch those triceps some more, though! The pain is still there this afternoon, but is lessening.
