I'm sure all of this aching means I got a good workout

Okay, get on your knees. Now, raise one arm and stick it out at your side, like its a wing. Now, move it in a plane from your head to your knees and back, kind of like you're making snow angel wings. Don't move your shoulderblade, just move the shoulder, and try to keep the arm in that plane. After ten repetitions, put your arm in front of you, and lift the opposite leg so that it's pointing behind you. Hold that position for a minute.

Not too hard, huh? I found the arm work does get tiring after a while.

Now, put your arm out straight again, and just move it up a little bit, so that you're keeping your shoulderblade very still and only moving your arm a little bit in the socket. It's a very small movement.

Yep. Shoulder stability. That's why I feel like little gnomes were kicking me all last night. I think once the knots fade away, my back will probably feel a lot better than it has been - all of the coughing created huge knots in my rhomboids - but man, I feel tight today.

Otherwise, I did NOTHING last night - nothing, nothing, nothing. I took the bus home from the Y and made some food and then just dinked the night away, at home by myself. In some ways, it reminds me of why I keep a blog - so that my days don't just all disappear down the drain like nothing.

26° out. Brr. Off to work then.
