Post Recovery Day Soreness?

I’m ready…for another day off. Thank goodness I’m getting one of those for Easter Sunday tomorrow!

I’ve been at work all day and what I said yesterday was right- being lazy is contagious and one day is just not enough. I was also super sore this morning, after having a day off exercise yesterday. This always happens to me- the day after I have a recovery day I’m MORE sore. I think it might have something to do with my body not getting warm from exercising? But who knows.

I’ve studied, worked and now I’m ready for home time! Not sure what we will do tonight- whether we see friends, have a low key date night or go out and do something a bit spesh. It’s all up in the air.

I don’t have anything particularly exciting to talk about since I’m feeling pretty meh and just want to chill. But I did want to wish you a super duper Easter and hopefully the Easter Bunny gives you plenty of chocolate! Regardless of how you feel about Easter, make sure you enjoy the choc, memories, special moments and down time.

I know some of this will be eaten throughout my day…


and I’ve got a tinkering for baking/cooking- hmm should I go back to My Baking List for 2013 (thinking paleo bread, gingernuts) or do I cave to cravings and back a Cheesecake (I’m thinking of experimenting with a clean recipe for something diff). Oh and maybe markets in the morning and I’m feeling some Protein Powder Pancakes…okay enough with the rambles- HAPPY EASTER!

And remember if you need some emotional support this Easter- head on over to the Emotional Eating Escape Forum!

      Happy Easter to you Merry! Thanks, I most certainly did- oh that sounds devine! I hope you went to the beach early because it started getting quite overcast.

  2. I agree on laziness being contagious it is easy to keep going once you’ve had one day off to want another one if it was so nice :)

  3. Happy easter! Doing gentle exercise gets blood into the muscles, which helps with recovery. If you don’t work out, you don’t get that benefit hence you will still feel sore on a second consecutive rest day. It takes most people 48 hours to reach maximum levels of post-workout soreness, so it’s likely you will always be like this – only the follow-up exercise you normally do will lessen the pain, if that makes sense?

      Thanks Tara- you too! It wasn’t a second consecutive rest day- just one haha! I get you. I’m thinking I should have done some light stretches and foam rolling, if I could be bothered haha.

  4. On Friday I finished my first week with a PT and I was so sore that I spent the rest of Friday in bed recovering!! So I totally understand now! :P
