Eek, am I sore.
Friday was the day I increased most of the weights in my workout by 10 lbs., because I'd hit the upper limit on the lower weight settings. So that put me a little sorer than a normal workout. Saturday was a party in which I spent 4 hours in constant field battle with no breaks other than several short and quick gupls of water. Sunday was the last day of the Michigan Rennaissance Festival, in which I walked around all day on my already sore muscles. Thus, today, I'm having trouble moving. Seriously, I wasn't sure this morning I'd be able to get my pants on due to the pain in my back and legs reaching down to pull 'em up.
And you know what? I love it. Thrashing your body makes you feel so much more alive than sitting around doing nothing all day on a computer. Getting out and doing something is so much more fun than just sitting there. Sure, I'm in pain; that pain just means I spent my weekend well. ;-)
Festival was productive. Spent most of it sitting around talking to friends. Also picked up some items I've been wanting at last-day prices. Got a new ring (finally) for my left hand (a nice silver piece of celtic knots), a very small potion bottle necklace (useful for the LARP), and some leather armor for the upper torso (which I look quite sharp in). All in all, I spent <$400. ($290 for the armor, $40 for bracers, $30 for the ring, $12 for potion bottle, $17 for entrace fee, adds up to $389. If you add food and drink that might push it over $400, I guess.)
In any event, next weekend is the LARP again (finally), so I'm planning on having fun. I have a couple friends I'm making newbies of by bringing them out, hopefully they enjoy the experience. I'd like them to come out this event as their first versus the next, as the next it will be a lot colder, and it'll also be Halloween, meaning the big bad undead type monsters will be out, and those can be... painful. Nothing quite like a lich walking through town laying death spells on everyone in sight. Ah, the memories...
I didn't get crap down with AweMUD or my contract jobs this weekend. As I said above, I was having way too much fun doing physical activity sorts of things.
The fatigue I have right now tho from the combination of my recent insomnia and my exertions over the last several days is making it rather hard to get any work done now, though. Seriously considering heading home. Although, I suppose, I might get more work done if I stopped writing in the blog and just got to work... ;-)
