I worked it for about 5 minutes and then had to rest my legs. They hurt just above my knees and in the lower thighs. I wouldn't think anything on my legs would hurt with all the treadmill walking I've been doing. Instead of running over to the gym today I've been doing laundry, and it puts my schedule out of whack.
I've been thinking I'd like a beer this evening, and re-read the after-dental work instructions - avoid alcohol until healing is well established. I think I safely fit in this category, so I will enjoy a delightful Golden Ale this evening. I need a reward for something or other!
I "borrowed" a small carry-on suitcase from Jeannie last night. I think it is part of my luggage set, but whoever needs it takes it. I would really prefer to check a slightly larger bag but $25 check-in fee is way too much when I think of how it was when I used to fly a lot. Larger and more comfortable seating, meals provided, and the list is long. I really do hate flying but at this time of winter it's the only way I can go. My April journey will be a lot less stressful on me as long as someone helps me pack up the Highlander. All my children inherited the good-packing gene from their father, so I rely on them to organize my trip. I used to be good at it too, but age seems to do something to spatial awareness.
I've been giving a lot of thought lately to finding a good chiropractor in my area. I notice that during and after exercise my neck aches, as well as the soleus muscle in the calf of my right leg. I know my spine isn't straight to begin with and I have been told a long time ago that I had a touch of scoliosis. I'd be curious to hear of any readers who use the services of, and have comments good or bad, about it. I sure wouldn't want to talk to a medical doctor about it - they would no doubt want to prescribe muscle relaxants, pain relief, etc., when I just want the problem fixed.
I guess I should get back to the elliptical - five minutes isn't enough to get a decent workout or even to judge whether I want to keep using the device. It looks like something you might see in a museum of torture devices. (Hah, I'm just kidding.)
