Tree Skeleton - Shelf Road, Colorado (Summer 2001)


Last night I played 2 games of soccer after not having played for nearly a year, and I feel like this tree now. I've got a bad case of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It can be felt throughout my entire body, including my thenar and hypothenar muscles (just kidding, but you still have to look up thenar and hypothenar). I expect that it will continue to get worse overnight, and I don't know if I'll be able to move in the morning. Hopefully, I'll be more conditioned for next Thursday's round of games.

lol..no bit of wisdom here. Only the next time i play basketball, i wont be able to just say that i am tired, i'll probably be using the line " i have got a bad case of delayed onset muscle soreness" and yes! i do have to look up thenar and hypothenar muscles. I didnt even know i had these muscles!

Did you happen to climb at Shelf Road when you took this pic? Check it out:

The pic is great. I did my bi-weekly training in the climbing gym last night. My muscle soreness was immediate, not delayed. So I guess I had IOMS!

I spent 2 months working in Colorado Springs, so I was able to make it down to Shelf Road several of the weekends I was there. It's a pretty phenomenal climbing spot. I didn't see any of the bouldering there though, as that was before I got into bouldering.

I like this picture. Nice one. I've got a case of sprained ankle, from running 2 miles yesterday, and Peter kept tripping, so I said dude, you trip too much. (We were running on the biology trail). Then like 20 seconds later, I take a bad step, and hear a loud pop, and think I might have broken my ankle, but luckily I have good reflexes when I turn my ankle, and it's just a slight sprain instead of something like Matt usually gets.

Did you get an x-ray?

no, it's not even discolored, just slightly in pain and puffy.
