things are working out...

I had a great workout today - my back pain was almost non-existent, and I ran faster and biked further* than ever. Did some stuff with free weights - not scary at all, not like I thought. You want scary - check out some of the tattooed guys in the weight room. We're talking arms with the circumference of oak trees, but harder. I tend to stay in the cardio room! ;-)

As I showered, remarking how little pain I felt compared to the last time I was in the locker room doing such, I realized exactly why I'd screwed up my back! You will probably laugh.

See, there's this girl I know - I left a message on her voice mail, and to riff on her statement that she was bad with her phone, I sang the following into the mouthpiece:

I could be yours pretty baby
Yours and yours alone
But let me tell you honey
You're bad with your phone
Bad with your phone

It must have been a hit, because the next thing I knew I got a Facebook message saying that she wanted to hang out the next day. I think I raised my arms and shouted "YESSSSSS!" and pumped my fists and danced around my room and somewhere in there I probably moved in a way I shouldn't have. The pain didn't hit me until I woke up the next morning.

Anyway, as far as that particular girl goes, well, you can't win 'em all - and if you can, sometimes not right away**. ;-)

* - Since I was on a stationary bike, I think the metaphorical "further" is highly appropriate.

** - Not that I'm an advocate of living in false hope. There's a fine line between simply leaving things open and waiting desperately!
