Day 49 - yes, a mile too far

Ow. Ow, ow, ow. Getting out of bed, inching my left leg out on to the floor, and ouch. Then the right leg onto the floor and ouch. Now I am standing, slightly crooked and back bent forward. I put one foot in front of the other and pain shoots from my calves, up through the hamstrings and through a tight muscle in my lower back.

Forward, a few more shuffled steps, to the stairs. The bathroom is upstairs, and I grab the handrail tightly, and then with both hands as I haul my stiff body up to the toilet. This is no good. Perhaps I did over do it.
A lot of stretching today, in a desperate attempt to loosen up muscles and bring back a semblance of normality. I think it might be too little, far too late.
