Well-played, Krampus. Well-played indeed.

Speaking of which, mine is pretty sore this morning. I was so very careful treading across the ice on the way home from the gym. But then when I arrived safely inside my apartment building, and headed down the metal inner staircase to my apartment, my wet boots slipped out from underneath me, and I fell backward and sat down really hard on the steps. This morning, I feel fine when sitting but I'm sore as if from a heckuva workout when bending over.

Friday, Jan. 24th:

30 minutes StairMaster, as difficult as always
60 minutes back & biceps routine


Oh my sore butt. I'm surprised how often I work those muscles, mostly when bending over, particularly when bending over to pick up a 30-lb dumbbell or 20-lb pair of dumbbells.

I've been like: "I don't need to do anything like Couch to 5K, I've run 5Ks, I'm an athlete by now, for God's sake." I need to have a little humility and do exactly what you said, short durations and building.
saef, I'll trade some humility for your drive & discipline! After resting on my laurels from a few days ago, I finally got in some ab & arm curls. I will do stairs at work today instead of elevator.

I'm having left hip pain that worries me. I had IT band syndrome for years from foolish overtraining (30 yrs ago), and now there is a little osteoarthritis, but I think the real source of pain is from the years of unresolved IT band issues. I'm trying to avoid stirring up the osteo. I tried the foam roller and my entire IT area is excruciating. Got my work cut out for me.

Cherry Pie, thanks so much for the foam roller info.

Jan 24: Barbell deadlifts 2 x 5 at 95 and 100 lb, KB sumo squats, 12 min of stairs.

F*@ked up my back again despite all efforts to maintain good form (had been fine the past few weeks). Cat peed all over the apartment when I was gone. Trying to resist urge to self medicate.

I'm still laughing from your exchange with saef. Hoping you can find something to laugh about, Krampus, and so preserve your Mass-minus-M

Cherry Pie, thanks so much for the foam roller info.
You're very welcome! Also what helped my IT Band issues was not just the foam rolling, but also stretching and strengthing my IT band - exercises like Fire Hydrants, Clamshells, side leg lifts, hip adductions.

This is the article I used

Saturday, Jan. 25th:

60 minute spin class, with me peddling through the light weight intervals, since I'd lifted the day before & plan to tomorrow, and wanted a rest day

Epic fail in Pilates class. This past Thursday, when I fell down the stairs & sat down really, really hard, I hurt my ischia-whatever-it's-called. The seat bones, deep in your butt. No, not the tailbone. (I hurt that years ago falling off a horse & I know the difference.) The minute we started doing half-rollups with our butts digging into the mats to steady us, I practically screamed, the pain was so searing. Yes, I had been sore in the butt, but remember, I work out hard, so I'm often sore. But this wasn't sore, this was pain. So, no Pilates.

Sunday, Jan 26th:

30 minutes StairMaster, the usual
30 minutes shoulders, biceps & triceps
30 minute leg day routine

Lunges gave me twinges, but nothing hurt like the moment I rolled down onto a weight bench holding a 30-lb barbell for overhead tricep extensions. There was that moment when the weight was on my seat bones -- gah! Thankfully that was just for a few seconds.
