New and exquisite kinds of pain
First the good news – working out is going really well and I’m already feeling increased energy and an aura of health. The bad news is that the old adage “no pain – no gain” is 100% true. This morning I woke up barely able to move my legs. On Wednesdays workout I did some work on my thighs. I have discovered that the muscles on the inside of your thighs are muscles that never really do get worked out in day to day life. I mean aside from crushing the odd tin can or some strange yet beautiful dance move you never really do need to move your legs outward rather than forward. At least I know what I have to work on.
Aside from the pain (which Advil and lots of stretching are helping with) today is shaping up pretty well. In a little over 2 hours I’m leaving to go work out, followed by the fun of a movie filled weekend. I’m a little mixed about tonight – Hitchhikers Guide promises to be good, but from what I’ve read being a fan of the books will really take a lot of the impact down. Compressing five books into 90 minutes is never a good thing – turning sci-fi comedy into an action movie is if nothing worse.
