Well, I’ve been wanting tattoos of stars for a while, and I had worked out a design I wanted a few days ago. I wasn’t going to get them till next week, but when I walked past Lucky Monkey Tattoo Parlor, I decided to walk in and get them. Dan did these, Sam did my 候.
Of course, the stars are red for port (“port wine is red”), and green for starboard.

Aaarrrgghh! I have tendinitis, and some carpal tunnel syndrome. I haven't been able to type for more than 20 minutes at a time, and my fingers, thumb, and wrist are sore and/or tingly almost constantly. Of course, this is the week that I was supposed to get a bunch of work done for the "face-to-face" meeting with the other Pulsar Group people in Milwaukee. I did see the doc just over a week ago, and he recommended rest; he also prescribed 600mg (that's 3 non-prescription strength pills) 3 to 4 times a day. So far, no discernible improvement, and it actually seems a bit worse. I haven't really done any work for the last 10 days or so, but the rest hasn't done much to alleviate the pain.
So, what else is new? I just started working out again. Mostly my same routine from last year (that I began on one of my 3-week long stays at Hanford). My stamina is a bit down, but not as much as I thought. I'm doing intervals (2:40 fast, low resistance, low slope; 2:40 slow, high resistance, max slope) on the elliptical machine. I'm doing 20 minutes, but my pace isn't up to my old level. I've lost a lot of flexibility in the inner thigh, so I'm not scrimping on my 30 minute stretch session.
I'm trying to ease into the Pilates mat exercises, as well. That's going much slower as my abs are extremely out of shape without dance classes. The last component of my workout is the resistance training on the Nautilus machines. I've lost quite a bit of ground, there, too. I've got my work cut out for me. Especially if I want to lose the extra centimeters around my waist so I don't look ridiculous in my bondage gear for Mina's party.
