My hips are sore! but it is worth it

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Yoga on Monday was much harder than the first time I tried it. There was different instructor this time. She was great. It was an hour and 20 minutes also instead of the hour class I tried the first time. We did a lot more salutations and did the same thing over and over again. She would show us something, and then we kept adding on to it. I kind of lucked out - she is subbing for 4 weeks and my last class will end the same time she is ending. My hips are really sore!

Even though I was a bit sore, I still did another 5K training day yesterday. I went approx 2.2 miles at the park yesterday. I walked for 4 min, jogged for 1 min Five times. I also did a little extra walking at the end. Each time I jogged, it was a little easier. I am working on trying to figure out my breathing pattern. If I focus on my breathing more, it is easier for me to jog.

My hips are extra sore today! but I definitely feel better. I have zumba tomorrow night at a later time because of a church event. I am still going though. I will probably eat before Zumba instead of before & After because it will be at 730 instead of 630.

I am now at 173.4 on the scale. I really hope it goes down a little bit more by the end of September! I am not sure if the bit of weight loss is because of the working out? Or just because? I am glad it is lower though! I would love to be at 172 by the end of this month! My cousin's wedding is Oct 27th, and I think I would like to be at 170 by that time. I will be at 80 pounds lost if I get there by then! I know I will get there eventually, but sometimes it is nice to put a "deadline" on the loss. It helps me push harder!

Hopefully everyone has a great week! WOW it is Wednesday already!!

    I really believe that instructors make a big differance in feeling like your getting something out of a group exercise program. You are switching up your workouts and that helps alot in losing, instead of continuing doing only one type of exercise.

    Yoga is so much more brutal than I ever thought it would be! You are amazing if you keep going back for more of that punishment! lol My core disc adds in some chair pose and a few other yoga positions and they just kill me. The first time I did the full yoga disc, I gave up halfway through and was sore for days, so go you!!!

    Easy with those hips if you are doing your 5K training on a hilly route. My very first week of the walk 4 minutes/jog 1 minute, my hips were excruciatingly sore. I was using a very hilly route and some older shoes. I switched to a flatter route and newer shoes and it went away about halfway through the 2nd week. Not sure if it was the route change or building up some muscle, but it really hurt. For you it could mostly be the yoga, but just in case! emoticon

    Good job, sounds like you are staying really active. Yoga is great for figuring out your breathing as well.

    The loss could very well be because you are changing things up a bit with the yoga and 5k training. When we do the same workouts over and over again, our bodies adjust to them and become more efficient. That leads to fewer calories burned for the same activities. Changing things up forces the body to burn the calories in a different way and learn to adjust to this new work. Going a bit faster, going a bit longer, doing different movements can all force the body to change, which helps torch those calories.
    WOOHOO on the jogging intervals! Glad to hear that each interval was a bit easier. Keep rocking!
