…because my arms are too sore to lift to the keyboard.
Thanks to that boot camp class yesterday morning, I am officially in the worst shape of my life, pain-wise.
Literally EVERYWHERE. Even in places I didn’t know had muscles.
The grunts of pain that I let out when trying to sit in the bathroom are most certainly going to get me a bad reputation in the office. And I actually screamed when I shifted my car into park this morning.
I went for a 3 miler this morning because the schedule told me. My body, on the other hand, wanted no part of this nonsense. Especially at 95% humidity outside! But I woke up at 6am, barely got a sports bra on without crying, walked for 1.25 and ran for .75, then tried my best to finish that last mile only walking a bit. I was surprised to find that running temporarily helped the soreness! Starting and stopping both hurt like a bitch and my max speed was somewhere around 5.5mph, but dammit, I did it.
BUT – I’m still sore. I thought flushing that lactic acid out with a shakeout run would do the trick, but now I’m hobbling around my office and people are looking at me funny and it’s not cool.
So tell me – What’s your tried and true anti-muscle-soreness remedy? I know foam rolling is the usual post-run soreness thing, but seriously how am I supposed to foam roll my triceps and my neck? Because pretty much everything from my eyebrows to my ankles are in pain. Do you have a go-to pain reliever or home remedy? Share your wisdom in the comments please – because I don’t know how much longer I can stand this!
One thought on “I’m typing with my mind…”
Bath with Epsom salts!!! Sprinkle in some lemongrass oil to help repair your muscles quicker, and lavender to relax you. I hope you feel better!
