If it makes you feel better, I destroyed my back with a TheraCane last night. I was so excited that my friend had one that I played with it for a while, and this morning had a hard time sitting up and everything! I even called in sick to work... I get ART tomorrow, so we'll see if that makes it better or worse.

I gotta get a Theracane - but I need to work on the mullet first. I'm just not Billy Ray Cyrus enough yet.

Allison - I also make kick-butt espresso, even if I do say so myself. So I got all the bases covered. The home gym is the best. I like to get good coaching and enjoy working out with like-minded folks, but there's something great about having your own place that's open anytime you want it and there's no one there to mess with your chi (well ,my neighbor's crazy barking dog can be a little distracting). A real bar and good bumpers, five good pieces of plywood and some slabs of rubber and you have a great place to destroy all connective tissue and freak out your neighbors (could be why the dog barks so much). Plus, no embarrassment when you pull a bad lift and loose it.

Default Ice and the foam Roller

As of the last month or so I've hit a wall. My two new friends are the foam roller and ice. Now that's not to say I've not been friends all along. Just a little closer right now.
First my shoulder is kinda messes up. It's the front part of my shoulder. It seems like bicipital tendonitis. I was doing good for a while with it. I was unable to do jumping pullups because this cause acute pain (front closest to my arm pit. It felt better as long as I stayed away from hanging or swinging).
Then I lost my mind and did a bunch of snatches. Now my the affected area is my tri, bicep and deltiod. All the way down into my elbow. My mood sucks since I'm going to a cert in about a month. AAAGh!
OK, then we have the IT band and patella tendonitis. I've been rolling and icing. As much as possible. Taking my fish oil, resting and eating pretty well. In the mean time I'm losing ground and going to a CF cert...aaaagh. I feel a bit more on top of the patella tendons deal. It's all very frustrating.
