What hurts most? Active recovery day!

My Bodypump workout left me dealing with DOMS. As the hours passed, the delayed soreness increased.

First it was my back muscles. I had a brief meeting in the morning and I just couldn't get comfortable while sitting in the coffee shop because everything was feeling so tight.

Then my biceps. I did some grocery shopping after my meeting and every time I reached out to grab an item, my biceps screamed at me.

Oh, my legs! I'm pretty sure it would be easier to just stand up all day.

Does any of this sound familiar? Midday I broke out the foam roller and yoga mat.

I did ten passes on my hamstrings, hips, glutes, quads and back. Then I did a nice and easy yoga flow to stretch out. This definitely helped my legs and back, but my biceps (and triceps) are still screaming today.

I wear my Oofos all the time in our apartment and I'm sure this helps the recovery of my legs too. I was excited to find so many options (including the style I wear) available on Amazon.

We are currently under Tropical Cyclone warnings here in Hong Kong as Tropical Storm Roke approaches a little closer than originally thought.

Hopefully I can get out for a short run!

Tell me about your worst case of DOMS!


  1. I don't know if I can pinpoint my "worst" case of DOMS....but it might have been several years ago when I did P90X for the first time. The DOMS lasted about an entire week, and I couldn't sit or stand or bend over or even brush my teeth. EVERY muscle on my entire body hurt in some capacity. I can laugh about it now, but it was SO awful at the time LOL

    1. This was by far my worst for arms, especially my right biceps and triceps! The foam rolling and yoga must have really helped my legs.


I love comments!
