I never knew the term "hamstrung" referred to a feeling quite as awful as the literal meaning.

Yep, I've strained my right hamstring. Not quite sure how it happened, since it's been gradually feeling icky over the last month or so. I hyperextended my knee a couple of weeks ago and that started the pain. It's a transverse strain that started out at Level I, but is now up to Level II due to stupidly tweaking it while sleep-jerking (no fair!), spinning (what was I thinking?) and vacuuming (who knew you used your hammies for that?).

I did pilates on Thursday and yoga on Friday, rather than run/spin on my lunch hour. So my abs are tighter and I'm meditated to within an inch of sanity. *twitches*

Go ahead, ask me about my neurotic tendencies and how much I hate ::meditation::

I was on the road to recovery, but yesterday was a big clean-up at the Lodge, where we (and by we, I mean me and a 65-year-old guy with raging diabetes and heart problems) schlepped and spread mulch and planted and did other outdoor work. Then Mr. K and I went to a Clippers game, walking almost a mile to and from the stadium.

Sigh. Yeowch.

What to do? I don't think I can take another "wellness" class without going batshit. Maybe yoga tomorrow (aieee) at lunch and then see how it feels on Tuesday. I think if I can keep from tweaking it for 3 or 4 days, it will recover quite nicely.

It better, 'cause I have a 10K first Sunday in June. D:

ANYWAY. Sleep has been my priority the past week or so. It's amazing to see how much better I look when I get enough shut-eye - my wonky eye is all but gone, my skin is plumper, my eyes brighter. Wish those dark circles would go away, though.

Mother's Day this year hit me hard, for some reason. Usually I don't get down or melancholy around commercial holidays or my mom's birthday, but today - GEEZ. Maybe it's all the Facebook status updates, my sister's birthday and baby shower being in the same week, maybe it's just a cyclical thing with me.

Wondering why the imminent start of uncoupling makes me want to plant a garden and decorate this place. :\ I'll update on this once the TALK has been had and there is a solid plan in place.

GOOD STUFF. The minor league ballpark here in town is new, and nice. We were sitting in the right field corner, so not sure how the new arrangement will affect the heckling. No fun if the players can't hear you!

Going out to drink absinthe with friends on Friday. Never had the stuff, so I'm looking forward to all the paraphernalia and the drinking of it. :-9

Have been slowly trying Dreamwidth - I'm quidditchgrrl over there, too. Hit me up. And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, [livejournal.com profile] chickadilly, for the code! :D

Getting stuff together for a huge YARD SALE! Finally, get some of the material chaff outta here. Then I can just send the proceeds directly to the damn IRS and let them sort it out.

Hope all you mommas out there were able to relax for a bit today and actually ENJOY being a momma. :-)

Have a great week, y'all.

Achey hamstrings suck - but then, it says a lot about my fitness level that I strained mine recently while bowling, and they ached for almost a week after that. Mind you, it was my first time bowling...

BTW, I sent the cookies off a while ago so I am hoping they'll arrive within the next week or two! You never know with international mail, I've had things arrive within 5 days and I've had chocolate take almost 4 weeks. And I've never used Royal Mail internationally. Sorry about the delay.

Feel better soon...
I once got a lingering wrist injury from meditating, so you might want to watch out for that wellness stuff :)

Can you get a massage and really have the person work on that hamstring? I strained my right one too about a month ago and have been stretching it like crazy but it's still bothering me. I'm thinking massage myself as well. I did smear it with Tiger Balm the other night and that really seemed to help.

Good luck! And let me know how the absinthe is. I've always wanted to try it myself.
