Darn those Bulgarians

Oh my gosh am I sore!  All (15 of) those Bulgarian split squats have crippled me.  I’m always surprised by how unfit I am at anything besides running forwards.  I did a rotation at children’s inpatient mental health facility while I was in nursing school.  They had a great playground, and I swung around on the monkey bars with the kids and got feedback on my cartwheels.  The next day I couldn’t use my arms because they were so sore.  I should expect that with the big-legs-little-useless-arms-T-Rex physique I’ve nurtured.  But you’d think I’d have enough leg muscle to do a few squats.  Well, you’d be wrong.  Should be fun running this morning.

Hope you’re not feeling sore today — and you don’t resemble a T-Rex.

    THAT EXPLAINS IT! (and I’m blaming you, of course, because avoiding responsibility cleanses the conscious – Plato said that, I think)
    I crawled out of bed, confused already by the time change and what that may have done to impede my beauty sleep, and was (am) sore as hell. I ran 20 yesterday but big deal; it was those iron-legged Bulgarians that leave me shuffling for coffee this morning. Thanks Liza (and sadistic Amanda).

      Amanda always suggests workouts in such a nice, reasonable way. Totally puts you off your guard, and then you’re squashed like a bug. Sorry you had to shuffle to the coffee.

    Hehehe! Yeah I have found that any sort of leg work, in particular walking lunges, pretty much debilitate me for about a week. I’m always amazed at how, like you said, one can run for 20+ miles but doing something as little as a few minutes of leg work kill you. Hope it goes away soon!

      Thanks Harold. Asa’s helping me work out the soreness today by forcing me to chase after him in various stores. He’s good like that. Happily I’m still a bit too sore to do the leg workout scheduled for tonight.
