Actually, I was up most of the night. I hurt so bad all over that I could not sleep. I couldnt stop moving, and my dog was in bed with me so..at 2:30 in the morning I thought maybe a warm bath would help my muscles. So, I took a bath! Then, I got on the couch. I was still hurting alot. All over. Every bone, muscle, ligament, nerve, nerve cell...in my body hurt. My knees felt like they were on fire. My back was killing me. I had a huge headache from not sleeping. Even the bones in my face were hurting. It was terrible. I fianlly fell asleep though and got a few hours of sleep.
Today, walking isnt the easiest thing. Its very slow and labored. They are still very sore. I have been taking tylenol since last night. But, I still feel like I shouldnt move at all!
I really enjoyed being outside. Its something I have always wanted to do, hike. And I went, even though my body HATES me for it... but I will probably continue to go. I am hoping that maybe my body will become accustomed to it and maybe it will help me get in shape some. Plus, I want to go swimming in the river! But, for now, I am just going to have to wait cause I can barely move! Guess thats what I get...
I really just decided that the medical field is something I cant get away from. The nursing program seems like it would be good and I think it is something that I will do very well in. Most people say its hard, but I already know so much and it interests me so... I know I will do good. Becoming a traveling nurse is something I want to do because I would be able to move around and see different places, something I have always wanted. Plus, there are so many benefits to it that it seems worth it to me. It just seems like a good idea. So, right now, I am headed in that direction.
Thanks for the support! Only 2 more days for me! And graduation is Friday. That feels good to say. THIS Friday. Finally... phew... it has been a LONG journey for sure. But, Im ready!
Wow! You have a lot to look forward to. Remember to enjoy your journey as work towards your destination.
I love hiking. It is so nice to be outside. I can understand how your body reacted though. You did a lot. If that was first time out you should be really sore. If you went swimming then you did use your arms too. My point is don't let that deter you from going again. Just start out a little slower. It really is great exercise and you will build indurance.
