I am without my pc this weekend, so I am blogging from my Blackberry. How cool is technology?

Anyway, I have reached a new level of soreness in my workouts. I have awoken this morning with what I can only describe as a fitness hangover. My head feels cloudy. My shoulder and right side are incredibly sore. My ass hurts. I am hobbling as my hip joints are incredibly unhappy. So, I popped a few advil, made some tea, and am contemplating putting the covers over my head and hibernating till next Spring.

So, what is my plan for a cure? Well, the hair of the dog that bit ya! I plan some angry elliptical and a bit of park walking should get my body lubricated and moving again. I also am going to drown myself in some water, as I need to replenish.

What do you recommend for the fitness hangover?


  1. I blog from my phone almost exclusively at work. I'm replying to this post on it right now! :)

    Oh man, I always said "I don't like pain relievers. I rather not use them". ...and then I started exercising 5 days a week lol For me, it's my lower back. I dont think I hurt anything, it just gets sore from all the bending and jogging and lunging and stretching. I feel like a hobbit if I jump up too fast. It's a small price to pay however!

  2. Sounds like that hair from that wicked dog is in your reach. Grab on lady! Grab on. And thanks for all your encouragement. <3

  3. Hmmm... Fitness hangover, huh? :) I really embrace the soreness now but in the beginning I HATED it and the only thing that really helped was Aleive. I've also read Epsom salt is helpful too!
