Ok, I needed that.

Around 1:20, I grabbed my backpack and took off down the street, and jogged to the gym. Then I stretched, did abs and pullups, and went through my long, painful lower body workout. Then I did some kung fu forms, and jogged back home. I arrived about 10 minutes ago.

The massive pain in the side of my neck has gone, for now, though I suspect it'll sneak back in. My legs are shaking like jello. I have learned a few things:

  • It's warmed outside than I thought it was.

  • My backpack weighs 15 pounds when I have a change of clothes and my gym paraphernalia in it.

  • 15 pounds seems like a lot when you're carrying it while jogging.

  • This "fresh air" you speak of is not easy to breathe. I am coughing like a smoker now. *

  • The up side to ending a workout at home? I can jump into a nice warm bath. Which I plan to do now.

* While some of this might be pollution/allergies, it's more likely that I'm using closer to my lungs' full capacity than I have in a few weeks. This always makes me hack up goo that has settled deep into my lungs. Aren't you glad you read this footnote now?

I had a plan that involved me getting in 3 full workouts by Tuesday so I could relax for games night and the long weekend, however, I forgot I have a nutritionist appointment tomorrow night, which will throw that off. I'll have to squeeze in an upper body workout Wednesday before games night, or perhaps Thursday, depending on how the week treats me.

Now, to the bath, for I am sore, and stink like an ogre's armpit.

Sounds like a great work out!

i did the complete opposite from you - i went to bed and slept for another 3 hours.

Of course, i think i'm coming down with some sort of cold or something. Bleh.

Hope your bath was good!!

I did as much last night, so we're simply even, then. :)

I'm glad you do the lung thing after unusual workouts, too. I thought I was defective...

I have a theory that pushing myself with cardio and making my lungs hack like that is good for me, and is a strong factor in my avoiding serious respiratory ailments in the past year or two. I have no evidence to support this beyond the anecdotal, but I figure that if I keep believing in it, placebo effect will make it work anyway. (this is how magic works)
