So, I was trying to use a new workout video yesterday.  And....well, I don't work out too much.  But, even so, I've never had a problem before.  I think I must have done something wrong this time around, though, since my lower back, butt, and upper legs seemed sore by about mid-day, and by the time night rolled around, I was in considerable discomfort.

I woke up this morning, and my back was so stiff and sore that I couldn't even get out of bed without considerable effort.  Every time I bend down or move my torso at all, these muscles just scream at me.

I moved a few of my things into my dorm today (the same room I shared with Italia, but will now be sharing with The Roomie from Freshman and Sophomore year).  And I decided to put sheets on my bed for the year.  That was not a good idea, either.  Maneuvering a large, heavy, cumbersome mattress ALONE can cause a lot of frustration.  And if you already have irritated, inflamed muscles, it only causes them MORE pain.

I'm fine as long as I'm sitting or standing. Any attempts to MOVE hurts like hell.

Will someone bring me tea and a comic book to make me feel better?


  1. I did something weird the other day too! As far as I know, all I did was squat and bend over a little bit while I was pulling weeds. I bike a lot, and run some, so I thought my legs were in pretty good shape. But the last few days my legs have been so sore! I guess I need to stretch more or something.

  2. Isn't that crazy? Except for this time, most of my pulled muscles are from silly accidents--like I lifted something a bit too heavy, or bent down too many times while cleaning...Hope you feel better. :)

  3. I know the last thing you want to do is move around, but it's honestly the best thing for you. Go for a walk and swing your arms around a bit, and get that lactic acid moving out of your body. Drink plenty of water. WATER. :-) That way the next time you do the video, you won't be that sore after. But good for you!
