First off

For those who saw in the news that Pratt is laying off 200 in Connecticut - Bob is not among them. 

Which leads me to my real point - dear God I HURT.

Yesterday was difficult.  I was shuffling around like Frankenstein.  But nonetheless I got changed and did the kick boxing class.  As anticipated, the warmup was painful, and I definitely noticed that my balance and range of motion weren't as good as they usually are, but I did pretty well and felt pretty good afterwards.  Then I went back to my desk and sat on my ass for an hour, and turned to stone.  Sigh.  By the time the day was over I could hardly move.  I was sitting on a pile of pillows at home so that I wouldn't have to go so far down and up to get in and out of the couch.  Getting in and out of my CAR was... difficult.

This morning I wasn't entirely sure that I was going to make it down the stairs - I thought about going down on my bottom, but first I would have to GET my butt down to floor level...  I'm getting up and doing quad stretches every thirty minutes and that's helping a lot, but... holy crap.  I'm actually afraid of my spinning class on Friday - I don't know if I'll be able to do any out-of-the-saddle stuff at all.  But even if I don't it'll still be a good cario workout.

Who would ever have thought that I'd be doing this?  I've loathed and feared exercise ever since school gym class taught me to.  I hate sweating.  I've arranged my life to contain as little physical discomfort as possible - and I am now giving over three lunch hours a week to exercising and sweating in front of my co-workers.  In classes where I am *clearly* the remedial student.  There's all sorts of high-school era demons lurking in those bushes.

I'm trying to figure out what changed in my head after all these years.  But it will be nice to feel better.

Once I don't hurt anymore.

I so happy that Bob survived the latest round! Sorry you are in pain. I am jealous that you have fitness classes at work. I can't even do the stairs at work because they are blocked except in an emergency. Try to keep moving and take it easy in your classes for the next few days. This too shall pass, but it's a bitch in the meantime.

That it is. But this too shall pass, and I'm told it's good for me.

I'm very clear on how good they are to me - it's incredibly luxurious that we not only have gym facilities, we have classes with trainers, and it's all FREE. I understand that it's a good investment by the company, blah, blah, blah, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a huge perk that almost no one else gets. Very nice.
