Today, for the first time since early in January, I woke up pain-free. I don't know what I did or didn't do to arrive at this juncture, but it was exciting.
So today, for the first time since early in January, I went down to the gym in our building. I took it easy: some stretching, 10 minutes at level one on the elliptical cross-trainer, 3 reps for my toneless arms, and lots of water. All to the accompaniment of Leahy, the best celtic-rock workout musicians in the world.
And, I fear, Hell.
