    A soak with epsom salts makes some difference. Warmups and cooldowns (which I used to just view as a waste of time) and doing stretching on a regular basis also seems to help.

    I'm back! I went to the gym and did my B lifting schedule, and went for the long walk (~45-60 minutes). I almost died only once, too! It all happened when I came across this Steep, Muddy Hill of Curious Irresistibility. Because it was a hill of curious irresistibility, I had to get my George Mallory on and climb that sucker! I almost made it to the top too, when I got careless with my next to last step and slid. And kept on sliding. Then slid a bit more. I'm sad, because it wasn't recorded and I have missed my chance to be on America's Funniest Videos.

    Anyway, my workout summary thus far during the competition:
    Times Stalked by Crazy Gym Chicks: 1
    Times Almost Getting Lost and Starving to Death in an Arboretum: 1
    Times Almost Killed by Steep, Muddy Hills of Curious Irresistibility: 1

    I'm doing GREAT!!

    im gonna pass on the competition but i have quite a few exercise goals, yall gotta keep me honest!

    ideal schedule is 540A to 800A monday-saturday but lately i have been sleeping in instead also, i want to do rock climbing gym every sunday and start swimming again after work MWF once i find a pool around where i live. stress from work has set me back a bit but i am starting to get a handle on that so hopefully i can pick up the pace!
    Welcome to the thread! Good luck making your goals.

    540A, though? That's early! If you figure out something to motivate yourself to wake up that early, please share it! I'd love to do a morning gym routine, as it's the only time of the day I can guarantee to have to myself. It would require a 445 wakeup time though, and I can't swing that right now.

    How do you know how much of the weight is just you being fat and how much is because you have a large frame?
    Good job. Pilates are pretty effective - you should start noticing a difference from those.

    Grayscale offered good advice. It's actually pretty expensive to get accurate body fat measurements. A scale with a body fat % analyzer is the easiest solution, but it's only really good for measuring increase/decrease - they are quite inaccurate.

    You can also go with something like this: Amazon.com: FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Management System with FREE Composition Tracker Body Fat Tracking Software: Health & Personal Care

    Although you'll have to learn how to properly use it to do any good, and it's kind of tricky.

    I'll do something else slower and more gentle on my own, but disappointed with that one.
    Aw... I'm sorry about your ankle. I hope it heals quickly for you so you can get back into the game.

    Well, keep in mind the first week is going to be baaaad. The soreness gets more manageable after that.

    However, cooling down by walking or other slow paced activity is really important. Also, really stretching after a workout helps.

    The next day, you can also do a light exercise to warm up and then stretch again. I've never tried salts like Fidelia suggested, but a warm bath can be really soothing. Not that a straight male such as myself has ever taken a warm bath, mind you.

    Well, perhaps I exaggerated just the tiniest of bits. I talked about it earlier in the thread.

    You make a very compelling argument. I will need to manufacture more crazy stalker chick stories before this is over.
