I was hoping I wouldn’t have to write this post. Monday night I pulled a muscle in my back going for a muscle up. It was one of those things that hurt right away, then didn’t (adrenaline kicked in), but as time went on it really started to hurt. Doing a side bend test shows I have very little mobility going to my right side. I have to very strategically get in and out of bed. I’m not a fan of taking muscle relaxers, as evidenced by the almost full bottle I have left over from a prescription over a year ago, but I took one to help me sleep. It didn’t help very much as I woke up a lot during the night from pain.
Luckily my desk at home is setup as a standing workstation, so I am able to get work done from home. I’m hoping that with the proper rest, icing, and mobilization that this won’t be a long lasting injury. Oh, another milestone, I just sneezed without pain for the first time.
Oh well, water under the bridge now. On to the next one.
