Running, walking, lifting and karate sure are taking a toll on my body. I don’t hurt, mind you, I just am so sore that I don’t know what to do at this point. I need to exercise, I know that, and it is important to lift and do cardio. In reality, karate is the one thing I don’t need to do but it is something that I want to do.
With the amount of bitching I do, you would think I would know the answer to this, but is it ever going to get easier? Right now I am walking all of the time, doing Stronglifts 3 days per week, running 3 days per week and doing karate 3 days per week. I know this doesn’t give me much time to rest, but I do lifting and running one day while karate another so I don’t do it all in one day. But are my muscles going to get used to lifting so that my karate and running doesn’t suffer? Or I am going to either have to live with the pain or give it up?
And I’m not giving it up.
Have I mentioned how I hate Flappy Birds? Probably not… but since I’m complaining, how about I complain about this, too.
Flappy Birds is a stupid game on Android and iTunes where you tap the screen to make the bird fly between pipes. It is pretty hard for almost all people (except my wife apparently) and it became famous because people were making videos of themselves smashing their devices out of frustration.
The guy who developed it decided to pull it off of the marketplaces despite making $50,000 every day due to ad revenue. This – of course – caused people to think they could make money off of the game and it has caused nothing but huge headaches for myself. I can’t go into great detail as to why, but let’s just say I hope to never see that stupid bird again….
…although it is on my phone. Anyway!
Today I did my session of Stronglifts and spent about 35 minutes on the elliptical. I wanted to run but my thighs hurt so much that I can barely sit let alone run. The elliptical was hard enough so the running wasn’t going to happen. And karate tomorrow may be the toughest thing I’ve done in a long time.
But hey, maybe I’ll get punched repeatedly and will forget about the thigh pain. And maybe someday I’ll be done doing the same type of post over and over… but it is such a common thing with working out that there isn’t much else to talk about.
Except Flappy Birds.
