On the up

I may not have started any bright and amazing cross training yet, but I have at least stopped screaming. I have also embraced my crutches, which have been gathering dust since I broke my ankle at the turn of the century. All of which means that I have upper body DOMS like you wouldn’t believe.

Arm DOMS, shoulder DOMS, wrist DOMS. I even have armpit DOMS. Did you even know that there were muscles there?

This morning, I also tried some water running (aka aqua jogging). I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised, both by how much I enjoyed it and by how exhausted I was at the end. Whether I can fit in any more sessions over the next five weeks is questionable, but I’ll certainly try.

  1. I don’t envy you. I’ve just got a pesky sore throat/cold thing going on* and I’m fed up already. Good for you for finding something enjoyable to keep you going.
