Just because this is my first post of the week, it doesn’t mean that I’ve been slacking off! I just haven’t found time to sit at my computer long enough to catch up on my blog. I’m guest posing at the NPC Capital of Texas Roundup this Saturday in Austin and competing at the Europa in Dallas next weekend, so there’s not time for dallying around when it comes to my workouts. And, the Team Universe is just 29 days away!!!
On Monday I got Tricia back from Las Vegas, eager to get back to the workouts. At the same time Rita took off to the Bahamas for a vacation with her sons. I took it a little easy on Tricia on Monday, since she’s been birthday partying and hasn’t worked out in a week. But, apparently I didn’t take it easy on myself! It’s Thursday afternoon and my legs are still very sore from Monday! It was great to get Tricia back and hear her Las Vegas stories in between brutal sets!
Today I felt really tired when I got up. I rode my Life cycle and that didn’t seem to energize me at all. I really wasn’t expecting a stellar workout, but that is exactly what I got. My strength was outstanding! I can’t explain it….
