Pushing 40

Yeah, yeah, aging brings aches and pains. But the last few weeks have been unreasonable in these things cropping up:

In August, I developed tennis elbow. Then I was on vacation, which helped (less typing), but I seem to have picked up a case of piriformis syndrome from my mom (I mean, maybe I got it from her genetically, but the joke here is I never had problems with my hip before but after visiting home while she was struggling with it, it cropped up for me), and recently I've developed some Achilles' tendon issue that might be related to the low-level plantar fasciitis I've had for years.

I suspect all of the lower body stuff is related to each other, but I'm still not fond of the cascade of small issues emerging in a cluster. Let's have this be it until I'm approaching 50, shall we?
