On Saturday Henning actually managed the heroic task of working out outside on the balcony in the burning heat. I still wonder how he managed without just dropping dead. He is however still suffering from his curl marathon with major DOMS.
I went from being scared to walk down the stairs to not having to worry about it. From being overly tired and unmotivated to very energetic and adventurous to the point where everyone around me gets exhausted before I even consider stopping. From not being able to properly paint, back to accepting freelance commissions again. Or in short, I went from being a MS patient with several impairments that seriously hindered my day to day life to feeling the best I have ever felt before - including any time before my diagnosis.
To go with this insane heat I am insane enough to have started Insanity a week ago (oh the puns). I must say I find it easier to workout in this warmth then during my short vacation in Switzerland (except the beautiful runs in fresh, clean, nicely luke warm Swiss air).
The female physiology doesn't allow muscle gain as easy as for males. In order to really increase your muscle size you need to not only eat much more then you are used to you also will have to work much harder then your male counterparts.
