A couple of days ago, I pushed my body a bit over the edge with some hard workouts and now i can't walk. I figured this out when i tried to sit down on the toilet to pee in the middle of the night. Midway through lowering my ass, i realized that the quads were not willing to support my weight, and i plopped hard onto the ceramic rim! Trying to get off the toilet was just as enjoyable. I had to hold onto the edge of the toilet seat so i could spring myself off the toilet. Elegant.
Walking down the stairs from bedroom to kitchen was just as rediculous. It's so bizarre to be an elite athlete who can't walk - and NO crashes to blame on it, just sore muscles.
Even though the soreness is a bit of a hassle, it does feel really good to be sore from exercise! It makes me feel like I actually worked out.
On another note, my Ahrens Team Bike is coming along! It is totally custom made to fit my freaky "Olive Oil" body. As soon as it is fully built, I'll post a photo. Their bikes will be on display at the Vanderkitten Booth at Interbike. I hear that VDK is doing a Flemish Theme party at their booth. If you stop by, let me know how it was and do have some beer and chocolate for me!
