What the hell did I do to myself NOW?!

I woke up this morning and the fronts of my thighs* were KEEEEEEELING me.  It feels like a horse kicked me in my thigh-fronts*, repeatedly.

I ... I have no explanation for this.  I have narrowed it down to two things:

1.  I did a new workout on Saturday.  But it was a LAME workout, a Jillian-lite, and after I got done I was all, like, is that all there is?  So I kind of doubt it was the workout.

2.  I did a painting (wait till you see it!) yesterday morning.  The only space I have to paint these days is on the coffee table in the living room, which involves sitting on the floor with my legs folded under me.  I was like that for approximately an hour and a half.  But, seriously?  Could sitting wrong have created this incredible pain the next day?  Guys, I can hardly walk.

Of course, there could be a thing the third, but I honestly can't think of anything else I did over the weekend that would invoke this level of pain. 

Sucks getting old, is all I have to say right now.  Thigh pain.  Bah.

*actual anatomical term.

Sitting with your legs folded under you could certainly put some strain on the muscles (it's quite a bit of stretch in that area). The best way I've figured out how to trace a phantom pain is to try to recreate it. If it hurts to get on/off the toilet, then it was from squats :) If you try sitting like you were before and it hurts, there's your answer.

Getting old(er) does suck! I'm a hot mess and I'm only 34 :(

Heck, Kate, you're a mere babe in the woods. :)

Right now it hurts worst when I go up or down stairs. And when I sit. And when I get up again. And when I roll over in bed. I'm just a big ball of groan right about now.
