No pain...

That's fine with me. That's what I like to say. Ugh. Sore for the second day today, but nevertheless I intend to do a short run tonight and then that blasted 30-day shred video again. I will not be defeated by a workout tape. As God as my witness and all that jazz!

My thighs, abs, and shoulders ache. People talk about how it is a good ache. I have never really understood that. I prefer not to hurt, but I understand that sometimes you have to suffer through a little pain to get the results you want. For example a cute pair of shoes that perfectly compliments an outfit is never going to be the most comfortable pair of shoes, yet you suffer through them to get the desired effect. So I choose to look at the soreness as the cute shoes. I may not like the pain, but it is a means to an end.

I did a 2.3 mile run last night in the suffocating humidity. After the run was the best I felt all day. My muscles were warm and relaxed, I had energy, but then flash forward 2 hours and it was hard to stand up from the couch. The best things you do in life are not the easy ones. When it is hard and you start mentally breaking yourself down. Trying to talk yourself out of these crazy feats only seems natural. However, It is always best to keep in mind that the harder you have to work for something the more fulfilling it will be when you get it.
