stuck in new york and the rain's coming down

Well, I learned last night that I can deadlift three sets of 140 pounds, which made me feel pretty good about myself. (My squat is nowhere near there yet. Someday, I hope it will be.)

Today, I learned that in my shoulders and neck, I have trapezius muscles, deltoids, and this little dude called the erector scapulus. And I also learned that they have ways of making their opinions known.

Picture Binkley saying calmly, "'Ben-Gay,' Please."

After I've had a day of, say moving furniture around, or mulching the flower beds, I've find it helps to take a couple of acetaminophen or ibuprofen before bed as a preemptive strike against soreness. Does seem to take the edge off, at least for me -- a friend who cleans houses in between occupants told me about it. My personal favorite, though, is a nice long soak in a tub of lavender scented bubble bath, with or without soft music.
