For Sale: One latissimus dorsi, right side. Apparently used to the point of exhaustion… and oh, yes: currently in need of work.
Some people are constantly pulling muscles, but I don’t. So that odd sensation Sunday morning while pulling the back door closed just didn’t register as something to be concerned about.
Then the spasms started. And the pain. Holy hell, I couldn’t even breathe without pain. Ice packs, heat, stretches, Advil, nothing really helped all that much. I learned that it’s a big muscle and governs a lot of movements. Who knew?
Yesterday afternoon I got on the treadmill for a couple of miles. Felt pretty good about three quarters of the way in, but after cooling off things were back to hellish. Just have to keep working it.
No real point to this other than bitch. Hey, my dog is stoic, I’m not.
