Kickboxing:1 Me:0

Last night was kickboxing night; my favorite night of the week (not including Friday and Saturday, of course). I was excited, I was feeling pretty good, and it was 80 degrees out. It was going to be an awesome workout!

And then it was like my body turned off. I'm normally pretty good at pushing through the rough times. I know it won't kill me. But yesterday I kept getting the feeling like I was going to pass out and I had no balance. Now, I'm not a very graceful person, I'll admit, but I couldn't even do side kicks or roundhouse kicks without losing my balance. Also, my feet kept sliding in  my shoes, so parts of my feet were really hurting. I complete 45 minutes of the hour-long class and that's all I had in me. I stretched a little and peaced out of there.

Today I am exponentially more sore than I normally am the day after kickboxing. I don't get it. I understand that every day is different and some days are great workout days and some are a struggle the whole way through, but this is ridiculous.

Does this ever happen to you? Any thoughts or words of wisdom?

My random words of wisdom for you today: Don't search Google images for "Ouch". (I know you're gonna do it now, because curiosity is a crazy thing, but don't say I didn't warn you!)

Here's a random sample:

It kind of puts my muscle pain in perspective, no?

  1. Sometimes workouts are just harder some days than other days, and if you're feeling it after the 45 minutes vs the hour that you're used to, I'd say you still got a good workout in.

    That poor man! Sunburns are terrible!
