Sore as A Gorilla

Have you heard of the Gorilla Workout?

It's this app that you can get for your phone that gives you daily exercises to do, slowly building your muscles until you are as fit as a big hairy primate.  Who wouldn't want that?

So, I downloaded it. First you're asked to be honest with the app about your current fitness level.  I'm a writer.  I've got a strong imagination but that is about it. So I started with level 1.

The first several days weren't difficult but then I got to this bad boy:
4 Rounds of:
8 Lunges
25 Squats

It didn't seem that hard really, so afterward I took a bike ride.

Today, I can't walk. Every time I have to lower myself to a chair or *gasp* the toilet, my hamstrings howl like a monkey.

For some reason I think I'll be looking like this guy for a really, really long time.


  1. I've found the workouts where you *think* you don't feel anything are often the worst ones the next day. And even worse is the day after that! Good luck :)
