I feel terrible

I didn't quite realize how out of shape I was, until I was in crippling pain, crouched at the shallow end of the pool, wincing as my left calf muscle turned into a rock. As it turns out, the Charley Horse was the least of my worries.

This morning my entire upper body was set in stone. I'm amazed at how people's tolerance of pain is different. In any other circumstance I wouldn't hesitate to simply crawl into bed and die, but because I know this pain is ultimately good for me I am filled with an intriguing sense of achievement; even if this sense of achievement is somewhat soured by suddenly being unable to reach anything above chest level.
