Murphy's Law at work?
So, how did I pull a muscle? I don’t know. It could’ve been a combination of things that I did. I’d started running up and down my stairs repeatedly in order to prepare my legs for inclined hiking AFTER the cramp episodes began. That probably made the pulled muscle worse. I also wore heels two days in a row to work which probably made everything worse, too. Not to mention I did the Ab ripper from P90x which requires elevating your legs off the ground. But the initial pull? I really don’t know.
My Mini Me’s prescription was, “No more exercises, mom! Cuz then you can’t hike!” lol It’s funny, but not so much. I have 3 to 4 days to heal before we hit Yosemite’s trails. Lesson learned. Do not try to “exercise” before a major physical function. I’ll pick up "exercising" after we return.
Let’s just say I’m grunting and groaning like an old lady limping down the halls at work. I rubbed some Theragesic on my calf and my Mini Me said, “Smells like grandma.” Good times. Did I go see a doctor? Nope. Just crossing my fingers for now.
