The Burning Means It’s Working!

So there’s this theory that the more you work out, the more in shape you will be in.

My sole purpose on this planet it seems is to prove this theory wrong.

I am being overly dramatic to the point of flat out lying, but this is how I felt after our team training. You know, after feeling like something someone scraped off the bottom of their shoe.

I guess part of my problem was the fact that training was at 9am, as opposed to the usual 12pm. It has been clearly established from an early age, I am not a morning person. I am a nightowl through and through, my parents recalling stories about how as a toddler I would stay up until 1 or 2 am, but would pass out well into 10 am. Not much has changed in the past 20 something years. I still hate getting up early.

Training went all right, I kept leaving my back vulnerable which I’m a little annoyed with, but ::shrug:: them’s the breaks sometimes. I also kept getting into omoplatas, I kept forgetting to grab the belt, so everyone kept jumping out of them. It was an unusual train for me, now that I think about it. I usually don’t go for omoplatas, and I’m glad that I saw the opportunities to take them, I’m just wondering if it was just a fluke or if I can pull it off tonight as well.

The team had little brunch after training, which Maggie made some awesome chili for, and I channeled my inner couch potato as I slouched in front of their tv. I was eventually able to detach myself from their couch, and we went home….Where I then stayed in bed for the rest of the afternoon/evening.  I even cancelled my guitar lesson with Rob in favor of more sleep. I guess this is a good time to mention I had been going to bed late all week and this was the only day I had to catch up on my sleep debt. Yes, I believe in the mythical sleep debt.

I’m hoping tonight will go a little more smoothly, and I will not be so convinced that my body has given up on trying to get into shape. We’ll see.
