    Had to skip today, my legs and butt cheeks are spent, probably because I did the 100 the day before and yesterday it was Jari Love strength training--I estimate 200 squats altogether in the whole hour of the workout.

    Oh no...I bet I'll be sore tomorrow too, I should have worked my way up to 100 instead of going all in :#

    You'd be sore even with 25 if you haven't done them for awhile. So good job getting in the 100! :)

    I think by breaking them down into sets of 25 it may help with the soreness versus doing 100 in a row.

    Yes I will do that from now on...Today I'm not going to do any because I'm pretty sore :/

    New stuff should be gradually eased into. I didn't do that with pushups and got real sore also.

    I am having problems remembering to do my squats!

    Today, I am in the same boat as Brenda though (and I haven't even made it to 100 yet...)

    Quads are on fire, have to lower myself onto the toilet while holding onto the sink! :#

    Sept 1: 50
    Sept 2: 75
    Sept 3: 0 (!!)
    Sept 4: 50

    Today I will try to do as many as I can but the DOMS may just get the better of me!! :)

    I KNOW!!! I still can't sit on toilet properly, but I'm going to attempt to at least do a few today.

    Tracey, I have a massive newfound respect for your quads and glutes - you must have buns of steel! JEALOUS!

    I want buns of steel too :p but I'm going to take it slow...I only did 25 today :)

    No buns of steel here, I guess all of the walking I have been doing has helped because usually after doing squats, I would be super sore for days. On days I feel the burn, I soak in the tub with 2 cups of epsom salt and it helps.

    Doing the squats in sets helps me as well.

    I did none yesterday - was still too sore. I am going to go to the back of the plane and do some on my flight. Should help with the giant cankles I always get on long haul flights too!!

    It seems like it takes about 2-days after going overboard and then you get really sore. We should all ease into these things to avoid that!
