Word to the wise, never go full on Elvis before stretching first!

Today I was trying to make the long daytime job a little more interesting. So, I decided, or maybe was coerced, to perform karaoke to Elvis’ Jailhouse Rock. I performed with gusto and finished with a karate kick to make any Elvis impersonator proud. Later, when I went to my karate class, I noticed a twinge of pain in the lower musculature of my back. I was trying to figure out why. I didn’t remember doing anything, as far as heavy lifting anyway. Then I remembered the whole Elvis thing! If only I had stretched first, things would have been less painful!

Oh well, I did complete my karate class tonight and feel okay, at least with a little ibuprofen to help. I guess I know now why Elvis was the king.
