xx.4 – It hurts.

Good morning all,
Let me tell you a little about my experience yesterday.

Please note I have never done a gym class in my life (school doesn’t count).
Anyway, me and my friend took part in our first class “Legs, Bums & Tums”.

It. Was. Brutal.


I knew I was unfit but I didn’t know HOW unfit I was until I took part in a class that I couldn’t even complete.
It consisted of lunges (with weights), wall sits (with weights), squats (with weights), pulsing all the way through (WITH WEIGHTS).
Safe to say I now hate weights.

I also developed a lot of shooting pains in my lower back which I am assuming is a result from an old back injury from where I used to carry heavy boxes of milk incorrectly when working at Costa Coffee.
Which was the main reason why I quit the lesson 35 minutes in.

I’m glad I quit, as I know my body’s limit.
However, I am in severe pain with my thighs, they’re literally like jelly, walking is so difficult now. And I have a full ache in my lower back just like when I first hurt it.

I don’t think I’ll be participating in those classes until I’ve got some strength back in my thighs.

I’ll just continue with the cardio..

Peace.
