Wow, am I surprised!!!

My work day yesterday was extra long and physically taxing.  When I arrived home after 10:30 pm, I could hardly walk.  My dogs (feet) were barking with pain.  My legs were stiff and sore.  My back ached.  Simply put, I was exhausted.  It would be an understatement to say I was suffering.  I woke up at 3:30 am hurting so much that I couldn't sleep.  The last thing I wanted to do was go do an hours workout with JD at 6:30 am.  Frankly I didn't think by body could take the hour long workout. 

I mustered up all the inner motivation I could find and got myself dressed and drove the 20 minutes to the Wellness Center, thinking all the way that I would probably not last for the entire time.  Well surprise of surprises I did last the whole hour.  And the biggest surprise of all .... I no longer feel the aches and pains from my work day of yesterday.  I am not stiff and sore.  My dogs have mellowed right out.  My back has just a minor soreness, which seems to be par for the course recently.

I would never have attempted to do a workout feeling the way I did had it not been for JD.  Knowing he would be there waiting for me, I just couldn't stand him up.  Lesson learned from this, for future times this happens ..... if the body aches, go ahead and proceed with a workout because I will feel better physically afterwards.
