I can barely walk today. I’m mostly limping, and wimpering occasionally. This is a due to a weekend of cold-induced lounging, then going for a run Tuesday night, then doing some intense conditioning on Wednesday morning. Mostly, I feel good about this pain, because it means I’m getting stronger.
And when I think about getting stronger, when I’m limping around and highly conscious of every muscle in my body, I like to imagine that my legs, under the cellulite, are turning into strong horse legs. Like, I have skinny foal legs now, and one of these days my legs are going to be huge and muscular like a big beast of a horse…but then I remember that I’m a human, and I’ll never be a centaur. This is always disappointing.
