In praise of sore knees. And hamstrings.

And, what the heck? Let's praise painful toes while we're at it.


I'll tell you why. Because it seems that I have some kind of creepy power wherein I praise something and then -- poof! -- it goes away.

For example, remember how I've praised Exercise TV and all their great yoga programs? Yeah. So much for that. Exercise TV is now defunct. Defunct! As in, gone. No longer.

And Sportskool? I wrote about how much I liked their running programs and, you guessed it, they are out of the line-up. Sportskool is at least still on, but not the running programs. What gives?

To top it off, my new medical practice -- the one that I found after a really crummy experience with my last one -- announced that as of 3/1/12, they are no longer accepting my health insurance. Oy vey!

The way I see it, I should be able to shake my little aches and pains simply by praising them right here on the good ol' Internet.

And so I shall.

Give it up for Left Knee! Knee, you rock. Thanks for hurting on and off for the last month. You've made almost every run a challenge and that's cool. What's life without a whole bunch of challenges, right?

Cheers to Left Hamstring! You pretty much rock, too. It's terrific how you give me that twinge of pain on every uphill. Forces me to slow down. Thanks.

Next up? Right Toes! I know you guys are a little late to this party but I have to praise you for feeling so sore during any and all walking and/or running activity. I appreciate that. I have no idea why you guys are so sore but, yup, you're doing a good job at it!

Yeah! Way to go aches and pains! Keep up the good work!

(But I have to admit, if you go the way of Exercise TV, I might not miss you quite as much as I miss those perfectly coiffed and overly enthusiastic instructors. Just gotta be honest.)

Think it will work? Let's hope. In the meantime, do you miss Exercise TV?

Have a great week, everyone!

I went through the same thing last spring with Exercise TV disappearing from my cable network, and then I remembered that they had the website. You should be able to still watch at least some of your workout videos online at Exercisetv.tv. Hope that helps!!!

Leah, I tried that but their web site doesn't work either!! They have a message up that says they are having problems and hope to fix it soon but that the web site will down as of 12/22. :-((

This is so funny. I sure hope your knees and toes don't notice the sarcasm.

Darlene said...

Hooray for aches and pain and their reality check. Nope, never watch TV.

Marlene said...

Oh, that is too bad!

I hope your little trick works to get rid of your sore spots!!

Melissa said...

When did Exercise TV go away? I worked out to one of their Yoga Videos Friday night!

Amanda said...

Then I'll praise my sore knees (aka Runner's Knee). And I'll praise my sore ankle! Poof!!

Felice Devine said...

Melissa -- not sure. I tried to watch it on Sat and it was gone.

Amanda -- Hope it works!! Ha!

Becca said...

Good luck!
