The real kicker of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) is that it gets worse before it gets better. It’s different for different people but for me it usually peaks at day 2. It is day 2. I woke up this morning and could barely move.
So… I did not go to the gym today. I could barely stand let alone do a squat. So I walked (uh, hobbled… If you’ve been backpacking you probably know the hiker hobble) to the library instead. Definitely better than nothing and I’m proud of myself for getting out and moving within my ability level. Which, today, is significantly restricted, but still.
In search of my TDEE
Just want to say, I actually find it kind of difficult a lot of days to reach 2600. That’s a lot of calories.
