I know what you’re thinking… Ummm Dan the drawback/downside of exercising is that it sux. Hey, many would agree with you, but for those of us that actually enjoy exercise and the benefits that it brings, there is another downside… muscle soreness.
After a certain period of excercise (its usually about 8-10 spin classes for me) our muscles need all the built up tension, toxins and acids massaged out of them. Whilst the actual massage itself can be very satisfying when all those knots of tension are released (sometimes it can be excruciating, especially those ITB’s.. ouch) the aftermath is never as pretty.
I’m sitting here now with a whopper of a migraine courtesy of the massage. Yes, we are supposed to drink tonnes of water after a massage, and I always do, but today was one of those stinking hot days when it didn’t matter how quick the water went in the sweat took it out.
So, that’s the downside of exercise. I feel incredibly lousy right now, almost like I’m totally unfit, but I know that tomorrow I should be right as reign.
