I think I might need to ease off on the intensity of my workouts and increase the duration of my cardio circuits. Haven't lifted since Monday. Went to the dojo Tuesday night and I'm still a little sore in my hips, glutes and quads. Might just focus on upper body and abs today.
Got Sox tickets for my son and I tomorrow night, so I'll be skipping Aikido. Hopefully I'll be rested enough on Saturday to do a heavy lifting session. It's often hard to get a good squat or dead lift workout the day after Aikido because my back is so sore. I don't even go that heavy.
