One of the social networks I visit has a permanent thread called “GOALS.” I’ve listed a couple good goals there over: learn how to do a BB squat, do a pull up.
This week, I think I’m going to add one that’s a bit different: Go 6 months without having a minor injury. I swear that about every 3 months or so, I have to write: I have a pain (somewhere) and must cut back/lay off/ watch my exercise. And I’m tired of it.
At the moment, I’ve got what appears to be inflammation of the cartilage in my ribcage. How’d I do it? Can’t tell you. A week ago, two hours after I’d worked out, I developed a isolated point of pain. Some motions hurt – getting up from the couch being the main one.
I’m back to taking it careful when I work out. Working completely stable to keep from challenging the area too much.
I’m sick of this.
