I think I'm getting old

'cause I totally wiped out a few times snowbaording this year and not a scratch on me. Crashed my bike last summer, a teeny-little bruise.

Then, the other day I GOT UP OUT OF A CHAIR and pulled the shit out of a muscle in my upper thigh. I think it might be my "Tensor Fasciae Latae", or maybe my "Gluteus Minimus". Either way, it sucks.

What do you 'old guys' do for this crap? When I was younger I'd count to 10 and I was healed. Everything seems to take longer to get better the older I get

How old are you?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

lol. I think your body is starting to hurt because you bought a Honda. Those bikes have planks for seats.

BTW, there's a thread where someone is giving away a rear-stand. I know you're looking for one. Check it out.

I think I said 'getting' old. Not already old like you guys.

Anyone have input on my injury? I'm wondering if I torn something or worse. A pulled muscle has never taken this long to subside.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting wiser. I broke my first bone at BHF at the ancient age of 37. Now it's a year later...and it still hurts. Get used to it, ya old farts.

sounds like a variant condition of sofa-spuditis. you have to ease into it and warm up just like any other strenuous activity.

we still count to 10...it's just that the unit used is "months" instead of "seconds"

That wasn't a crash, you broke a mirror, and scratched some plastic That's an "opphs" Crashing in my books requires, blood spilt (yours), a meat wagon, some sort of helicopter, huge medical bills, coming to with a circle of people standing around you all saying "Are you okay dude?"

lol...thanks for the memories.

Yeah, that was an easy get it....I remember it felt soft compared to my snowboarding follies. Regardless, I wasn't traveling near 30mph when I got out of my chair.

I am feeling better, ROM is starting to return to the leg, so it was probably just a bad pull, not a tear.

Tell me about it. And getting motivated to work the messed up part just gets harder. It took a year before I'd really start working my shoulder after the surgery X-mass of 03. I finally got sick of wimping around and started lifting again on a regular basis right around the time of your party. I think you motivated me a little. My F-ing shoulder bugs me every time and I need to be careful on almost every lift. I won't even try to go heavy at this point. I've now gone just over a month doing alternating days of cardio and lifting without missing a day. What a PITA. I have to schedule my drinking around my workout schedule. I've even been getting up a 6 (I'M NOT A MORNING PERSON! ) to work out so I can go out with friends after work. I'll probably take a few days off when I'm in Hawaii in April. At least I'm seeing some changes. After I get done adding some more bulk, I'll have to work on loosing my massive gut. Hey, how is your program doing? Still dry? Still working on getting some extra ribs?

Later

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

My physical therapist told me I was a 21yo in a 41yos body. That made me feel real great. At least I dont look it, hahaha. I already have arthiritis in my back, and will most likely get it in my shoulders and neck.

I slipped on ice a month ago and hit my hand. Saw the doctor and he said you just have to give it time.

And if you want to hear a funny story, I celebrated my 40th birthday by pulling a muscle while working out! Isn't that appropriate for that milestone birthday!!!

We have to face facts. As we get older, the body takes longer to heal.

If it doesn't heal up, check with your HMO/PPO to get a doctor appt.
