/Sigh. I suppose it’s fitting that I’m entirely sore writing my monthly fitness report, but I still feel like an old man. I haven’t been doing the workouts that initially inspired these posts here -> http://thebloggaday.blogspot.com/2010/06/bloggaday-110-new-exercise-regime-for.html, but I am sore nonetheless.
This is kind of a perfect storm of soreness. I went to my monthly yoga meetup on Sunday. Then I had a short yoga routine Monday in my new, 3 times a week, yoga class. After some back and forth, I finally got into CSUSB’s rec and fitness center to do some weights.
The Sunday yoga was fun. We learned some crazy arm balances at the end, but the bulk of the routine focused on leg strength, so it’s killing my legs now. I’ll be posting my Bloggaday about it tomorrow, so that’s all I’ll say here about it.
I was late once again to my yoga class, but they hadn’t started the session yet, so I didn’t miss any of that. It was a short session though. I will attribute my back soreness to it though since we did a bit of lower back stuff, and I didn’t really do anything with my lower back at the gym.
So the gym… I assumed it would be in the same huge building that the stadium, PE classes, locker rooms, and all of that is in. But no. I found the rec center though, which is just a little trot in 100+. Unfortunately, I needed a student ID, so I walked over to the library, got sent around since the elevators won’t take you to the basement, got my picture taken after yoga and a half an hour of walking around in 100+. So, terrible picture, but oh well.
So I got into the gym. It’s a pretty nice place. It is a little bit smaller than I would have thought for such a big campus, but it was definitely nice. I worked on a few different machines and got a pretty good feel for everything. I am definitely so though from it. I didn’t spend a lot of time in there, but most of the machines had 45’s on them, and I didn’t feel like changing them, so for a lot of them, I just did a set and moved on.
It is cool though, they have a very nice and I’m guessing comprehensive rock wall there. Given how sore my legs were, I definitely wasn’t going to try it though. Honestly, I probably won’t try it for a while either. I tried doing one a while back and sucked at it, so I should probably continue gym/yoga for a while before I attempt scaling the wall.
So, my legs are sore, my lower back is sore, my arms, my shoulders, my everything else is also sore. As for my fitness for the month, I’ve just been doing yoga, mostly at home.
Yoga can be an amazing thing
You can increase flexibility
You can get an excuse…
An excuse to do stuff,
Like slap your Sister
Don’t believe me?
Go to CSUSB!
