Dead Legs

Oh my legs are seriously sore this morning!

This weekend we spent a lot of time exercising. So it's no wonder that I'm feeling like I have dead legs.

On Friday, Ryan and I did our usual P90x legs and back day. This one never feels any more difficult while it is going on, but always makes me so sore the next day!! I guess that means it must be doing something.

Saturday we headed to the pool for a swim. I managed to complete 2000yds. It felt harder than last week, but I actually don't think my time was much different. I am really enjoying swimming lately. It's a nice way to get a good workout without putting to much force on the legs.

Then, Sunday I did a short run in the morning (4.5 miles) followed by a 38 mile bike ride with Ryan and our friend Josh. First bike ride of 2013! It was a beautiful day for a ride--about 55 degrees. We had some wind though, so by the end of the ride we were pretty exhausted!

As a fun perk though we stopped in at a new brewery that was ing the route to do a beer sampler and enjoy some more time in the sun. By the way, if anyone is out in Northern California, I would definitely recommend checking out Berryessa Brewing Company. They even had some people playing music.

Needless to say, after all of that my legs were feeling pretty sluggish on my morning ride in. Haha! I bet they will loosen up throughout the day though.

Hope you all had a great weekend too!


  1. I was going to run today, but my dead legs (and the wet, semi-freezing rain) suggested a day of rest was in order. I obeyed, especially after my weekend of running.

    1. I was pretty exhausted yesterday, so I did some light yoga rather than a lifting day. Sometimes its good to really listen to your body!

  2. Wow a 38 mile bike ride 0.0 No wonder your legs are feeling funky now! I'm sure they'll feel better soon ^^

  3. 38 mile bike ride is woooooooow to me. That's amazing!!
    I really want to try p90x again one day - my whole body will probably be unable to move the next day though. ha!

    1. Haha -- yeah -- the first week or two is pretty rough!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
