    Well I didn't even throw any weight on yesterday in my first leg lift, but holy hell my legs were sore today. The last 500 was a struggle. Felt like I was dragging concrete blocks behind me. Going to have to better map out my workouts now that I am adding lifting back into the mix. I plan to lift arms tomorrow and then do a recovery practice, but that means Friday may be rough if I am as sore again then as I was today!
