Note to self

Dear Self,

I have absolutely no idea what you did to INJURE YOUR ARM but I wish I knew, so I could tell you not to do it again. Oh well, be careful.

Love,
Me

That’s right. Somehow I managed to jack up my left arm.

Yesterday, I did a brutal 10 minutes on the stairmaster and then headed into the weight room to repeat last Friday’s killer arms session.

Honestly, I felt great afterwards and even now, with the exception of my left arm, I’m not very sore like I was Friday-Monday the last time!

Basically, this part of my arm hurts.

Arm

I don’t know how I did it because it didn’t start bothering me until 9:00 last night while I was sitting on the couch watching TV reading blogs on the laptop. It came on pretty suddenly too, not like that delayed onset soreness you get sometimes.

I think it’s the wrist because it hurts to bend it forward or backward or put weight on it, pick something up with it, etc. But the pain shoots down sometimes all the way to the elbow. It’s uncomfortable no matter where I rest my arm. Not excruciating, just uncomfortable.

Anyway, self-diagnosis over!

So, obviously no weight lifting for me for a while. I’m hoping it’s just minor and I can take a couple days off, ice it, and be good by next week.

Looks like it’s cardio time!
