OH MY GOD I'VE LOST THE USE OF MY LEGS!

That'll teach me to get some exercise. Seriously, I hobbled down the stairs this morning. It reminds me of when I decided, the day before I went to America for the summer, that I was looking a bit stout about the legs (in retrospect, what the fuck was I thinking? I weighed about seven stone! But anyway) and should "do some exercises". So I did some badly executed pliés before heading off to bed.

The next day I could barely put two feet in front of the other. And I had to get on a plane, go to America, and walk around Boston for about an hour looking for the hostel where we were spending our first few nights. Carrying a bag so large and heavy (I had packed about four pages of shoes and a shelf full of books) that I could only put it on my back with the help of two friends. It was not fun.

So although all the muscles in my thighs seem to have siezed up, I suppose it could be worse.

It'll get better, honest! I used to feel really achey the day after yoga (and the day after that), but I'm normally grand now - maybe a bit stiff if I've been working a particular area harder than usual (I had slightly sore shoulders on Tuesday evening because we were doing half-handstands and headstands on Monday night), but that's about it.

Four pages of shoes? How many pairs a page?

It does get better. I only hurt after yoga now if I've done something especially 'intense'[1]. Which never happens nowadays because I'm doing wimp yoga.

[1]Yoga code word for hurts like fuck.

Ouch! Ouch ouch ouch. I hope it eases fairly quickly. Keep going to the classes, though: it'll get better over time.

I am aching after skating so I share your pain. Weirdly though I always feel extremely energetic the day after and need a lot less sleep. Despite aching I am itching to skating again. Or do something. Mainly I don't just want to sit around at work today and sit around in the pub tonight.

If you have time to stretch after class, that greatly reduces the aches later.
