    I use to wake up with a tight back and just general soreness all around. I went for a full body massage and the difference is amazing. It was a deep muscle massage where they really lean into you but afterwards I was in heaven. Just curious what others might do to treat themselves.

    I have 2 of my route girlfriends working together massage my back using exotic scented oils!
    While on my break, of course.

    Is that an abbreviation for porn? Tylenol prn?

    PRN is a medical term for "as needed".

    I like having some sweet young thing walk up and down my back wearing 10 inch spiked heals. Mrs. Rod likes to have a group of sweaty muscular young guys fan her and feed her peeled grapes.

    I will sometimes drink a lot of beer until I feel better. Also, Celebrex is a wonder drug for my aching joints.

    I find lots of stretching and exercise is all that is necessary. And of course, eating well. Can understand those that have major health issues that need therapists and pharmaceuticals, but generally those things can be avoided.

    I joined a gym in mid-Febuary and I have worked out every other day without fail. Its a program called "crossfit" where you have a different workout every time so you never get bored. It is very structured, there is a guy there that leads the excercises and yells at me when I start slacking. I need that, I dont want to think, I just want to be told what to do. It emphasizes cardio and core fitness, its very fast-paced with lots of reps at low weights.

    This is what my cross-ft looks like. First I'm cross, then I throw a fit ......

    Tae Kwon Do 2 to 3 times per week for cardio and flexibility. Full body (well almost) deep tissue massage every 2 weeks. Lots of motrin and tramadol while actually on the package car. Stretching religiously before work and 10 to 20 minutes half way through the day. All this and I have found my groove to make it through the week as a somewhat upper middle aged UPSer!
