Today I have the kind of muscle ache that reminds me that I’m doing something right. The muscles hurt because they’re not used to being used and all of a sudden they’re being put under all kinds of stress. And they’re mad at me, but they’re also glad for it. My muscles ache and my heart is pumping again.
It’s not debilitating, or painful, it’s just a gentle reminder that they’re still there. Like, you’re suddenly once again aware that you can feel it because you haven’t for so long and you’d forgotten what it feels like.
And even though it hurts, and even though I ache, I’m going to wake up tomorrow morning and want to do it again.
Until tomorrow, I’ve not felt like that for a while.
