Oy. I was wrong, it's two days later that the pain really sets in.

I'm planning on being back in the gym tonight, but I need to do a lighter load on the arms. I'll see how it goes. The crunches and the legs are fine, and I'll probably set up the back machine.

It's friday. Made it through another week, and into a weekend of downtime. Did a bit of Christmas shopping last night-- got Bryan's present. It's been something I've been planning to get him for several months because I know he needs it.

Christmas is gonna be pretty limited this year. If any of you are expecting something from me, let me know.

I know what I'd like for Christmas, but I know I'm not gonna be getting any. :)

I didn't know until recently that it was possible to be horny but not want sex at the same time. It's a cruel feeling really, like being simultaneously hungry and nauseated.

I splurged last night and picked up McDonald's chicken nodes on the way home. I know they're not exactly healthy, but I was suddenly ravenous for nodes. I had eaten them all by the time I got home, and I was still hungry. Gah.
So today is oatmeal and bratwurst soup.

I put the second (repaired) ear on the corpse last night. Realized that with no hair, it ends up looking like an undead H Ross Perot.
"Zombie Perot for President!"

Just a note on the muscle soreness: if you are feeling pain more than 1 day beyond exertion, you've done non-trivial amounts of damage to your muscles. Try to limit your workouts to only 10-15 minutes of "burn".

Don't forget to warm up and cool down, as well.

Since you're already in the soreness part, allow the muscles to heal before working them hard again. Remember that high reps of lower weight can also be a reasonable workout, and result in leaner muscle mass (rather than bulkier muscle created by high weight/low reps).

These are all things I learned from my coach and the physical trainer when I played rugby.

I was expecting non-trivial damage. It's been a long time since I've worked out. Part of it is the diabetes as well... healing takes longer for everything.
I'm planning lighter weights and more reps, but I also need to get some muscle development in place beyond what I've been getting on the bike.

I don't know why I'm surprised at you being a rugby-er. You're a lot more physical than I had first thought.

Huh. Do I give the impression of being non-physical? What made you think I wasn't a physical person? (Aside from my fluffy physique!)

That's just it... I do think you're physical. I've just gotten so used to you being a brain and having a sense of style and liking geeky things that I tend to forget the physical. And with Omegacon, the massage, the Polynesian dance, and now rugby... well, it's all kinda unexpected.

I'll get over it. Eventually. :)
