August 27, 2005 Working out this week didn't work out.
I occasionally throw out my neck at the gym, typically, when I make the mistake of arching my neck while doing some form of bench exercise.
Monday was one of those mistakes.
I proceeded to compound the injury on Wednesday because making a mistake just once isn’t satisfying enough.
A visit to the activator looses everything back up but while I have most of my range of motion back immediately it takes a week or so for the pain to subside.
Friday I did legs for the first time in four months, including a harder set of lunges than I’ve ever done before. So my gluts, hamstrings and quads are all making me pay for neglecting them.
My neck is screwed up so I can’t look around properly when driving, nor can I sit in an upright chair comfortably. And my butt and upper legs are all torn up so I can barely walk, stairs become a ordeal and sitting down becomes a long term commitment.
I’ll spend this weekend finding comfortable positions and staying in them for extended periods of time.
