    I have played tennis twice this week, combining this with shoe box rearranging at work and somehow I hurt like a very hurty thing.

    My back is all knotty and my right hand and wrist hurt (in a tennis related or shoe box related manner....)

    So why do we bother? it hurts and it makes me hungry so I eat more anyway!


    Forgot to mention I beat Elin (Twigglet) both times....yesterday was 9-7, 6-2 :cool: yey!

    Aww no poor caroline!! I soooo can understand what you mean with the whole shoebox thing! I used to work in a shoe shop and shoes are really rather heavy!

    I hope you feel at least less painful when you read this anway!
    take care

    Exercise is good Caz... Just by stopping all chocolate, changing from sugar to Canderel [sp] and resuming playing squash, I have lost 8lb in 3 weeks...

    Like I always say: Eat Right, Live Healthy, Exercise - Die anyway. ;) :D :D :D

    Kidding. Good for you. The pain is there to remind you you're still alive.

    If you're sore after sport (which you shouldn't be if you warm up and and warm down properly) then I can recommend the following.

    Go to the body shop and but a small bottle of essence of oil of lavender.

    Run a hot bath, (or warm or tepid depending on the weather ;) ) and put 6 drops of the essence under the running tap.

    Indulge yourself, and make it a deep bath that you can submerge all but your head.

    Soak for one hour.

    You'll feel fine the following morning.

    Cost - £3.50 for the essence of oil of lavender - £0.26 for the water in the bath - being able to play cricket/tennis/football/Eton wall game on consecutive days when desired - priceless!

    Sounds like a man in true touch with his feminine side if you ask me! :roll:

    I'm off to my exercise class soon. A sort of Extreme Pilates. The instructor is a sadist and I feel fantastic afterwards. Bit like banging your head against a brick wall. It's great when it stops...

    No I don't really know why I do it. It obviously fills some kind of void in my life. Maybe I was a flagellati in a previous existence...

    My son managed to hurt his back a few weeks back (playing tennis was part of his too!).

    He literally hobbled to the GP, who performed a chiropractry (no, I don't know how to spell it!) procedure on him - put his hands behind his head and then sort of lifted him by his arms. Noises of cracking from his back. He walked out almost normally and has been absolutely fine since! Definately a magic cure.

    If it doesn't clear up quickly, it might be worth a visit...

    Ouch! well you no my stance on excerise Caz, you just shouldn't do anything that takes effort :D

    But then again i'm not surprised you've hurt your shoulder, I remember how tedious (and at times strenuous) rearranging an entire stock of shoe boxs was :eek:

    Coming from a man who'll need more than essence of Lavender Oil to get his teeth fixed. :mad:

    Wow, I'm impressed! I haven't had chocolate since....monday! But more importantly I haven't had a drink since Sunday, which is good for me - I was in the habit of drinking something everyday.

    As for exercise, I know it'is good for you.... I just wish it didn't hurt or make me hot and sweaty!

    I have been ordered by the doc and physio to do exercise, if I stop being active my lower spine gets extreamly painful and siezes up :( no chiropracty for me though it makes things worse in my case.

    Exercise is therefore good :) it doesnt take long for the body to adjust, and the aches and pains just vanish! Trust me ;-)

    Watch out if you haven't done serious exercise for a while though! A bit like anything else ... slow, controlled planning is needed. I used to cycle a great deal which made someone think I could still be useful sprinting. Went through all the stretching, warm-ups, circuit training etc. at a club only to pull both hamstrings on my first speed-trial! (... I wasn't told that one of the guys was in the UK sprint squad though :mad: ).
