No, not in the bedroom, at the gym!! It was only 3 drips (yes, I counted), but that's the first sweat-dripping workout I've had in <i>weeks</i>, not counting the ones in the pool where you can't tell.<br><br>
Anyway, I did 30 min of weights, then a few easy squats and 15 min on the stationary bike. I started off with a nice light resistance, then backed off. Several times. But I did it. Even managed to break a sweat, though I never did have to breathe hard. Lady on the bike next to me probably thought I was nuts. I made sure to flex and massage my knee several times so everyone would realize I'm coming back from an injury. <img alt="blush.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif"> Can't have them thinking that was an actual workout, you know.<br><br>
Baby steps.

I LOVE that sweaty drippy feeling!<br>
But, Only when working out.<br>
I HATE that sweaty drippy feeling when I'm at work or church or somewhere in non workout clothes.

Yep. These are very slow, very controlled, and somewhat shallow. Less than a 90 degree bend. Minimal weight (like 20 pounds max).

Glad you're back, Bannon!<br><br>
Haha... had to do this once, after hitting my knee pretty bad in a ski fall, went back to the treadmill, people on both sides were looking at me wondering why it's so hard for me at no even 6mph... so I had to pretend I'm limping every few minutes, to show them I was injured.

<b>Jane Curtin</b> : This past Thursday was the great American Smoke Out, a day that everyone in America was encouraged to stop smoking cigarettes for a 24 hour period. Here to comment further is Update Health correspondant, Roseanne Rosannadanna.<br><br><b>Roseanne Rosannadanna</b> : Thanks, alot, Jane. A guy from Forlayden, New Jersey writes in and says, "Dear Roseanne Rosannadanna, Last Thursday I quit smoking. Now I'm depressed, my face broke out, I'm nauseous, I'm constipated, my cheeks swell, my gums are bleeding, my sinuses are clogged, I got heart burn, and I got gas. What should I do?"<br><br>
Well, you sound like a reeeeal attractive guy. You belong in New Jersey.<br><br>
But I know exactly what you're going through, cause once, I, Roseanne Rosannadanna quit smoking. To get back in shape, I had to join one of those fancy shmancy health clubs. You know, the ones where it's really expensive to join but it's worth it because you get to see alot of people that you don't know naked. Like some people got them bulgy, bulgy thighs, the ones that get chafed just 'cause they're always scraping together. And there's other people there that got them funny bellybuttons. Like some go in, and some go out, some are like a ball, or curl around, or it's like a little knob on it like a door. Some people even got little pieces of their sweater still in it. Some of them even look like a little shell or a clam or something you don't know what they are. But personally, I, Roseanne Rosanndanna, don't like to walk around with no clothes on in front of other people. Not that I don't have a great body, but why should I waste it on a bunch of fat ladies in a health club? Anyway, they got this thing there that's a little room that's hot inside and you go in there to sweat like a pig. So I go in there, but before I sit down, I put this clean towel on the bench 'cause there's alot of people been there and you don't know where they been. But who do you think is sitting next to me but Dr. Joyce Brothers. That very smart pixie lady who thinks she knows everything. But what this nude psycologist didn't know was that she had this little, teeny, tiny ball of sweat right here, hanging off the tip of her nose. It was just hanging there! It wouldn't fall off! Like if she turned her head, it wouldn't fall off. If she stood up it didn't fall off, if she stretched it wouldn't come off, and when she picked little pieces of her sweater out of her bellybutton it wouldn't fall off. That little sweat ball just wouldn't fall off. So I yelled at her, I said, "Hey, Doctor! Flick that sweat ball off your nose! What are you trying to do, make me sick?"<br><br><b>Jane Curtin</b> : Excuse me, what do health clubs, sweat, and steam baths have to do with cigarettes?<br><br><b>Roseanne Rosannadanna</b> : Well, Jane, it just goes to show you. It's always something. If it's not one thing, it's another. Either you smoke or you have a sweat ball hanging off your nose. It's just like a song we used to sing on Thanksgiving when I was a little girl. Everybody would come over to my house all dressed up pretty and everything, and my mother would make the turkey with stuffing and for dessert, we'd have the traditional Banana Rosannadanna cake. Before we ate, we'd bow our heads, bow your head, Jane, come on, bow your head. Bow it. BOW YOUR HEAD!! And we'd all sing: 'We gather together to ask the lord's blessing. Please love down upon the Rosannadanna folks. Bring peace to our fathers, good health to our mothers, and please don't make me sweat like Dr. Joyce Brothers.'<br><br><img alt="" src="http://www.gildasclubsouthjersey.org/images/jpegs/gr-rr.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>

QN and Bannon are gym attention whores. LOL...kinda like my kids at school who make their injuries waaaaaaaay more "hurtful looking" than they really are.<br><br>
"I have a paper cut...I need to go to the clinic and get stitches..."<br><br>
For some reason this reminds me of my first year teaching. A kid got a bean stuck up his nose.

Hey <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"> I didn't say I did it all the time. Just that I have done it before -- on my first run back from an injury.<br>
I won't have to do it when I come back from pregnancy though. I'll have a newborn baby with me in a stroller so everyone knows <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">

You should start practicing now. Put a duck in the stroller and away you go.
