Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

I am about to enter the office to get my gear, so I can travel an hour north to test a pour. With my luck, this pour will be continuing at 1200. On the plus side, because there's no one awake to listen to the radio, all the stations are actually playing music. Which...is... (falsetto) awesoooome!

I'm pretty sure I did them right, but I'm a beginner so I don't know. They were Romanian deadlifts using dumbbells, so they should be pretty idiot-proof, but one never knows.

Yeah you probably did them right, it's just a really stressful lift.

I just hope this is "my back is torn up because I did them right and now it'll get stronger" and not "I fucked up somehow and threw out my back as a result." I think it's the former, but the pain is very similar.

But it's supposed to be hamstring exercise, so I dunno.

A little pain is supposed to happen in working out (especially about two days after the fact). A lot of pain immediately, though? That's not usually normal.

...I'd say take it easy. Especially in concerns to the lower back. You jack that up, it will never quite heal right.

Did you just do a standing lift or did you bring them up to chest or above as well? and did you do it in a smooth controlled motion or was it more of a quick jerk upwards all at once?

Smooth motion, standing lift. I think I did it right, I just used more weight than normal and am horrendously out of shape. I think I'm good, is what I'm saying. :thumbsup:

That might be it: I'm starting weight training, too, and I'm having to get used to using lesser weights until I'm comfortable with the motions and movements. I'd say stick with a comfortable (rather than stressful) weight until you know that you have a handle on the body mechanics of lifting (the muscle memory, etc.) before you start pushing yourself for more weight.

:facepalm: It seems that all the sudden I felt overwhelmed for just trying to order 6 1-gallon bottles of water, as the woman at the other end quoted price arrangements and when a discount is reached... My bloody brain can't sort it out I had to let someone sub for me.

I must be getting... No, fuck, I'm an old fart already. It also makes me angry that I'm being used as a middleman to do their bidding.

So....I've been extremely depressed lately. Which is hard for me to admit because I dont get depressed. But I am....to the point that I've literally inverted into myself. All I do is read all day. It's the only thing that keeps me from evaluating how much my life sucks right now. Even anime, which used to be my escape, holds no joy for me. It's pretty bleak right now. I'm trying to pull myself together but it's hard as hell.

This finding yourself shit sucks ass :raincloud:

^
I can sympathize.

I had a random depressive episode on Thursday that came out of nowhere while I was listening to music in my room. It was probably brought on by stress/anxiety and I'm still suffering from the aftershocks a few days later. It's easily the worst I've had in almost two years. My advice is too just try and turn the introspective part of your brain off for a while. Watch TV, websurf, play videogames, do some work, anything that doesn't get you in that contemplative mood for a while because from my experience that's when it sneaks up on you. Stick with something light and fun. Unless it's a major depressive episode, it should get better after a few days.

Yeah. I'm trying. Music helps a little but depending on what I'm listening to my mind starts going in circles again. Amazon has been raping my pockets recently and you can only read so much. I don't want to get sick of it.

It's pay day this coming weekend so maybe I'll get out of the house. Free my mind a little...

I went through a major depression just recently, chronicled earlier in this thread. Easily the worst in my life, and I still feel it waiting at the edge ready to be re-triggered at the slightest provocation. But, I shit you not, as bizarre as this might sound, it ended when Super Smash Brothers for 3DS was released. Now that's not to say it was the cure, the real cure was finally taking steps to improve the situation that was causing the depression in the first place -- but it was that nudge that changed my mental momentum, changing a chore (going into the city on a regular basis to meet people and make connections) into a comfortable habit. It changed uphill to at least flat ground. I felt like I had meaning in my life again.

This isn't advice, just a story. I have no idea what the moral of it is.
