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.
