Gimpin into spring

Have you wondered maybe, where in the hell I've been? 

Yeah, my usual pace has been interrupted. 

Thanks to PIYO, but really more to my general state of damage, disuse and neglect, I injured my hamstring. These are tricky, strange injuries that can mess up your year.

If you've never had the pleasure yourself, well...just don't. It really, really, really hurts. Not only does it hurt, but it's actually difficult to walk. Or to move the leg at all much. My gait is stiff. Watching me walk nowadays is like seeing a short, overweight, slow-witted, arthritic Frankenstein with a flat chest and very bad attitude. 

It maybe is a good thing that the injury occurred during my attempts to get back into shape. At least I was trying. Now I know - you must break them down before youbuild them up. And this is not going to stop that. Once I get some improvement, it's back to gentle NON-INJURING exercise. No more over-doing it.
