This post is mostly for me, to help me remember why taking a month off is *such* a bad idea.
You are sore all over. Quads, arms, calves, feet, all complaining. Don't take that much time off again Hoodie. This is your reminder of how much it sucks. You are slow moving, stairs hurt, and brushing your hair highlighted tight muscles you didn't know existed. The cat knows you are being a big baby, she's cuddling you, trying to make you feel better with her purrs (Orx and Crake, anyone?). So, don't get that lazy again. It sucks working your way back.
