A journey of purpose. One gal's search for a balanced life .
This is embarassing to admit, but I nearly fell down the stairs today due to post-workout muscle aches. It is going down the stairs that hurts, I can get up just fine. Stairs are impossible to avoid in my house (row home with 3 stories, laundry in the basement), so the ache/discomfort/sometimes pain is becoming unbearable. I don’t think that it’s rhabdomyolysis, as my symptoms are limited to myalgia, but it’s on the differential.
Things I’ve tried:
Enter the internet search… The inter-web of knowledge has suggested Epsom salt baths! I had completely forgotten about this trusty sidekick from my days as a high school athlete. If memory serves me correctly, this stuff worked well if you stuck to it regularly.
My plans tonight involve a shopping spree at the CVS to prepare for the never-ending battle of the bulge. Inspired by Gym Bag Essentials (by PeanutButterPlank) to equip myself so I that have NO EXCUSES. Aside from the epsom salts, I’m gonna grab some dry shampoo, gold bond powder spray, and a tennis ball to add to my arsenal.
