This is all happening because I don't know how to prep for running and stretch afterwards or for how long.
I am a fitness idiot. Now I pay in pain. Oh my aging, aching body.
I'm going to gym tonight and using the elliptical. My friend.

The remaining wines M&M collected in CA.Bearing witness.And then the Juicer. But, that's a story for another day.
So, I thought, hm, let me go running again. But, longer. And, on a treadmill. Sure, that will help.
How far? 1.5 miles. Pushed myself? Yep.
Wise? Not really. Now that I know it really just meant more pain by a factor of 10.
So, I spent about 40min massaging my quads because if I nearly fell down the stairs this morning en route to meet Ann (pre gym)... then would I now make it down from the top of this building without a smashed nose, jaw and/or skull?
(I keep thinking about that one time when I joined the crew team for AM exercise... up and down those stairs... a bajillion times... and then I could not traverse the stairs in my dorm for days. It was horrifying.)
Maybe the massage worked. Maybe cleaning the apartment worked also. I snoozed on the couch while thinking. When I woke and stood, no Extra pain. Good sign, right?
Hey... maybe it wasn't such a bad idea after all. Well, the jury is out until tomorrow morning after 8 hours of inactivity overnight.
I just really want to know what the running hype is. Can you fault me for being eager?

We didn't get to eat at Sticky Lips (what a name!) and instead patroned Dinosaur BBQ (not the original in Syracuse, but 2nd location in Rochester, or The Roc, according to the friendly TSA guy taking our check in baggage from Jet Blue).
But, this is really how our stay in The Roc or Ro-cha-cha began. In the restroom, upon arrival, bearing witness to ourselves after a 2+ hr delay on the tarmac at JFK.
The Highland Diner fare... amazing mac n cheese... no milk pitcher, just cream pre rationed. You can see what we think about that.
And then we hit Jo-Ann Fabrics in Henrietta. Wowsers. Even Jason got excited over crafts! That's right bitches!! *clink* To kicking Mark's ass in billiards!

I picked up Edyta and took bqueue-fdr-hrd-gwb-46 and picked up Amy. A record 30 minute ride!
And so, we arrived earlier than expected, parked on the street ($0.25/hr for parking - this is magnificent) .
At chez Amy, I offered up a little whine/cramp-whine/whine while waiting for 11am to tick tock... *time marching*...
Then as elevenohclock-struck we went for grub at Nam San in Palisades Park, NJ. I needed to eat kalbi-jim being low on iron this week.
Edyta went the safe route with gopdol bibimbob and Amy had budechige. ~sorry, no pics of food~
Dudes!!! This all cost me $14.75!!! Sad for Rag Shop, euphoric for me. But, the day did not begin there....
