injured Absolutely Nothing

No workout here—not today, not yesterday, nor the day before.

Damn shoulder. Totally zoinked it.

So it's all RICE and Advil. Mmmmmm NSAIDs.

If anyone has brilliant shoulder therapy exercises or workout subs to recommend, I'm totally receptive. I figured I'd rest it completely for 3-4 days, then start doing non-shoulder stuff and rotator cuff exercises with the bands.

Sheeeeeit.

    Ugh, wrists are no fun. If it swells up like a cantaloupe, get that sucker x-rayed.

    I'm on the injured train, too, but a knee. Waiting until it's 100%. I've learned the hard way. There's always legs only stuff.

    Sorry about the injury. What's the nature of the injury? Would mobility stuff like working with lacrosse ball help? do you ever look at mobilitywod.com?

    Dan, you're funny, and you're absolutely right there's a lot I could be doing.

    Ceridwen, sucks about the knee. How far off are you from feeling ready to go?

    Mimi, I've never seen http://mobilitywod.com before—brilliant. I'll check it out.

    This might be a little too honest, but when I can't work out, I totally lose all motivation to do anything right—like eat right, etc. It's like a pity party. Weak shit. I'm guessing a lot of us are like that, though.

    I feel for you. I wiped out running yesterday, borked my wrist, and ruined any chance of a decent Crossfit workout this morning.

    I'm RICE'N too, but on my ankle instead. I think the plan to ease back in to resistance-based workouts is a good plan. Stick with no-shoulder impact for as long as you can - better to wait for zero pain than give yourself a preset schedule.
