I've learned a lot about how much I can push my body before I cross that invisible line ... I pulled a muscle in my abdomen this week .. You don't realize just how much you need to use your abs until your body won't let you. Big ouch. Listen to your body and know your limits! Push yourself - but also know when you've pushed hard enough. If something doesn't feel right - check your position, stretch it out, or take a break.
I've learned the importance of stretching properly before and after each workout. I find I'm not as sore the next day and that my workout is MUCH easier when my muscles are warmed up from a nice stretch!
I've learned that my workouts are much more fun and I'm able to push that much harder when my little boy is telling me, "Good boy mama! You can do it!" :)
