A Little Banged Up

So sore. Not only are the steps a challenge but getting in and out of my car presents its own set of challenges.

That chipper workout on Wednesday hit me in the lower half. I don't think my glutes or hamstrings have ever been this sore. Right knee is also tweaked. The good thing is that my neck (post-fall) feels much better. Hmmm, forgot about the right shoulder tweak...

And, yet, I still buy workout clothes. My second top in two weeks. Didn't know that bamboo was a naturally wicking material. Didn't know that it was so clingy either.

Too Much Going On for Burpees...

It's amazing how injuries morph. My little rope burn is not bad at all.

I somehow managed to get a bruise on my arm and I don't bruise easily. Also not sure where I got the bruise from. Maybe it came from hitting the floor while doing burpees?

Since I'm talking about scars, my bicycle injuries have healed nicely -- except for a little hyperpigmentation on the one arm. My dermatologist just told me to make sure that I keep sunscreen on it...

Finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It dragged in the beginning but the moment I read the description of Lisbeth Salander and read her first dialogue, I knew that I was going to like it.

"You know, if you just want an office serf you can get one from the temp agency. I can handle anything and anyone you want, and if you don't have any better use for me than sorting post, then you're an idiot." (40)
I so enjoyed reading it in 20 minute segments before work. Liked the relationship between Salander and Mikael Blomkvist. Little stuff like this scene moved me:

"Why did you turn around?" (Blomkvist)
No answer. He waited her out while they drank coffee. After ten minutes she said, reluctantly, "I like your company." (Salander) 506

Watched season one of Parenthood and really liked it. The Deep End of the Pool episode had me cracking up.

Have a good weekend. Hope you have time to get a good book in your hands or take care of burpees or something like that... :)


  1. Dang! those are some good "battle" wounds! Rope burns suuuuuuuuuuuuck :(
    Sorry about being so sore. When i used to weight lift hard core, and do squats with heavy weights, the DOMS would wreck me.
    I could barely walk, so I called it the "Ozzy" shuffle, as in Ozzy Osbourne.
    Anyway, hope you're getting lots of good recovery time and foods to help heal :)

  2. Oh wow, the "Ozzy" shuffle is quite the visual.

    I'm feeling much better except for a lingering knee tweak which I hope will go away very soon.
