I am sitting here uncomfortably at 8:30 CST, on my 37th birthday. I have been awake since 4:30am unable to sleep. My wife and kids are all asleep and I am pondering in the stillness of my house my lessons learned.
Why an I sitting uncomfotably? On Thanksgiving, I played a game of football with relatives and stupidly didn’t warm up. On the 2nd play, I am sprinting when I feel my hamstring (my only good one, due to a motorcylce accident), “pop”. Now I have a severe pull / minor “tear” that will probably take a month to heal. Lessons:
Warm up, stupid.
You’re not in your 20’s.
Respect your limitations.
Get off of the recline bike and run more. Tabatas are your friend.
Its hard to go to the bathroom with a sore Hamstring.
Its sucks getting old. Good thing my 26-year old wife things its sexy when I’m all gimpy.
Happy belated Thanksgiving to everyone.
