So - I'm learning a valuable lesson. I once read that using Advil or some other NSAID when you're sore from a workout short-circuits the recovery process, and in fact, means you don't get as much out of your workout as you'd like.
That being said - it's been DAYS since I've been able to fully extend my left arm, and my back has been nice and sore since my workout with Angie. That's part of the reason I haven't been back to the gym - waiting to recover.
And this morning, I popped some Advil finally. Yes - it might mean that my muscles don't grow as big as they could - but it hopefully will aid with the PAIN I'm in - and get me back to the gym on Thursday for at least one more upper body workout before seeing Angie on Monday again.
That being said - instead, I'm NOT sleeping in. I'm using the treadmill - and in fact, did my LONGEST 30 minute run yet this morning - 1.920 miles.
In food news - staying with the points and doing well as far as I know (will know more Monday) - and will start posting food again - promise. :) Amber and I are evaluating our 'nicer' cookbooks to look for a nice home-cooked romantic Valentine's Day dinner that is on the 'healthier' side...a few selections from "Delicious Disney" are standing out - but we haven't decided yet.
How's YOUR Tuesday going?
