Hola cheeky minxes!
So this morning when I woke up, I didn’t feel very sore. I had anticipated my boot camp class leaving me with that awesome next-day workout sore, but no such luck.
However, I did wake up with a terrible kink in my upper back/lower neck area. It wasn’t a good exercise-induced type of hurt though, it was a “you slept on me weird so you shall be PUNISHED” kind of hurt. I’m sure you guys all know that pain. Where it hurts to turn your head more than 10 degrees in a certain direction? A-Rod has been calling me Frankenstein all evening, because I have to turn my entire upper body to look at him.
But I don’t think my kink is because of sleeping funny, if I am being honest… The more I think about it the more I am convinced the kink is from tossing my head around so much last night at boot camp, trying to keep my hair out of my face because of my lack of HAIR TIE!!!
So today’s lesson is, always remember your hair tie, or you may injure yourself.
I worked from home today because I have a lot of work to do and I get more done at home, rather than at work, funnily enough. No one calls me, or pops into my office, and I can ignore my email. Though I did have this nonsense to put up with…
Silly Dexter. I know another little kitty who likes to do the same thing…
I worked non-stop basically from 7am – 5pm, but of course I broke for lunch…
Two whole wheat tortillas topped with leftover chicken from last night’s dinner, shredded cheese, salsa and lettuce. I love being home for lunch, though I could have easily created this at work.
My neck was hurting basically all day, and it was difficult to find a position I was comfortable working in. With my hurty neck, lack of people to talk to (besides my kitties – Andy was off work today but he was out golfing), and staring at my computer screen all day wishing for my magazine to lay itself out, I felt a little cranky and restless by the time Ando returned from golfing.
After he asked me if I would mind removing my grumpy (read: pajama) pants, I decided something had to be done. So around 5pm, I changed into my running clothes and headed outside for a run.
With a hair tie! And yes, I wore those super sexy glasses. I didn’t feel like making eye contact with anyone.
That quote about being one workout away from a good mood? So. True. I feel like I ran all the crankiness out of my mind, and the kink out of my neck (well, almost). Sometimes I feel like body aches can actually be cured with more exercise. Don’t take my advice, I am not a personal trainer and I probably don’t know what I’m talking about! But when I first started running I got pretty bad shin splints, and the more I ran, the more they went away.
I ended up completing my usual 4.5k loop route.
So anyway, I am feeling much betta now, and I am off to watch Big Brother!
Question of the Evening
- Do you find if you have a MINOR injury you can work it out of your body with exercise?
