If only participants from my classes could have seen me this morning! The second day after pump or weights always hurts the worst, and it was hilarious when Alexander and I woke up this morning.
His alarm went off early and I lay there half asleep, in fact, so tired and groggy that I probably would have turned over and continued to sleep, unaware of the alarm. Except, instead of turning over I discovered I couldn’t!
I groaned and struggled as I moved and rolled over and Alexander, who was awake, said “yeah I know your pain!”
I could barely stand up when I got out of bed, but I still got up and helped Alexander get ready for work anyway. He ended up running late, so I was trying to help him put his shoes on while he ate breakfast. It was quite hilarious, since neither of us could reach his feet!
His pain ended up being quite a lot worse than mine. I guess I only had 3 weeks off pump, but he hadn’t done the class in 4 months. With his weights (eg. 40kg for squats and lunges and 30kg for chest) I could imaging there’d be plenty of muscle soreness. During the day my aches eased out a little bit, although I was still sore. However Alexander was so sore that there was no way he could do the combat class tonight.
Being pregnant I’m getting quite lazy so I was happy enough to skip combat, and instead I spent the evening cooking my first ever lasange! I think it turned out pretty yummy for my first attempt, and we then played monopoly for the evening (with a starwars themed version…….but hey, at least it was in English!).
ahhh, the pain……..I love it!
