Patience Not Have I

Filed under: It's Me, Lass,Training — by InterstellarLass @ 9:32 am

I’m calling on Master Yoda to channel the force for me. Use a Jedi mind-trick on these people. Still waiting on the call. I mean, my phone rang yesterday. Still no decision though. Me on pins and needles is not a happy me. Or a nice me.

So last night I decide to go to the gym to get my anxiety out in the form of exercise. I decided to try a new class called Boot Camp. Take my advice. Never voluntarily sign up for or enter in to any activity called Boot Camp. Zed was with me. I should be referred to DCFS for inflicting this type of activity on my child. No Mom of the Year award for me, again.

The first thing was traveling lunges across the room and back. Anyone that knows me knows well the fact that I hate lunges. These are the exercise of the devil. Well, a tie between lunges and wall sits really. And we did those too. And jumping jacks, and running around the room over step obstacles. And football dribbles and side scoots. It was pure torture. During the wall sits, Zed looked over at me and said “We are not doing this again.” I looked back at him and said “You are 1000% right we’re not.”

It all went to hell when we were running zig-zags between the cones across the room. Then sprinting back. On my first sprint back, I dug a little too deep. Pushed off with my right leg and POP! There went something. In my hip. Perhaps my hip flexor. Perhaps my gluteus medius. I just know it hurt like hell. I tried stretching it for a moment, but every time I moved after that, it siezed, and I hurt more. Time to stop. 34 minutes into Boot Camp and I was D.O.N.E.

At home, I took two Aleve, sat on an ice pack, and had Nick massage my backside with The Stick. (Don’t worry…it’s OK to click!) This morning I’m feeling stiff and sore in my right hip and not exactly a happy camper.

I hope this anxiety is relieved soon. Help me Master Yoda. You’re my only hope.

Update: Next on InterstellarAdventures: Dealing with Disappointment or “You have won second prize in a beauty contest– collect $10”. 😦 At least I know now.


  1. You are a brave, brave woman.

  2. I’m sorry, sweetie, for the hip and second place finish.

  4. Excellent decision (to avoid from now on!) When I was out with my husband the other day we passed by a gym and I said, “I would NEVER work out at a place called BRUTE’S gym.” He said, “Well, you’re not their clientèle.” Yeah, no kidding!

  7. Sitting here, in front of the tv, with the lap top on my lap, my socks on and p.j.s, the Boot Camp class sounds kinda fun. I’m sure I’d hate it immediately while I did it, though. I hope your hind quarters feel better. That massage with the stick sounds like fun though.

  8. I was just thinking how great it is that I can go to the gym vicariously through you when I got to the “pop”! Oh no! I hope it’s better today.

  9. Oh my goodness! I’m bummed to hear about your injury (though from your most recent post it sounds like you’re getting better, fortunately), but I am SO EXCITED to see a link to “The Stick”! I had completely forgotten about how awesome the stick is for muscles and massaging. I haven’t used one in years, but I’m totally ordering one right now. Thanks so much for helping point me toward something that will surely revolutionize my workouts… or at least my recovery. 🙂
