Did my first lower body workout Tuesday in well over a month, maybe two. Tried to take care to keep it easy.

3 sets of 12 lunges with 10 lb dumbbells, rotate weights forward on the lunge to more effectively target my behind
3 sets of 12 squats with 10 lb dumbbells
3 sets of 12 calf raises with 10 lb dumbbells

And walla, so sore (my poor sore bootay)! Debating whether to add these in once or twice a week now or if they will make me too sore and maybe I should wait until after the marathon on 10/12.

Marathon is only 3 weeks away, so now may not be the time to start-up an aggressive lower body workout schedule. Maybe start with fewer sets and add more after the mara.

That's how I always feel when I work out with you! I need to taper and rest to workout with you and then spend a few days in recovery :)!!!!

I'm thinking maybe only once a week until the marathon! You don't need sore legs on those long runs and tempos!

3 weeks it might take just to recover from that. Time to say f it and buy a hot tub. Imagine the fun parties. Either that or a personal masseuse.
