So remember last year when I popped my sternum, and took myself out of commission for a few days? Wait, you don’t remember?
Yeah, I totally did that again this week. Not stretching this time, just picking up a dumbbell off the floor at the gym. Felt a pop, decided to work through the rest of my routine, and now I’m paying for it. Ooo the sweet fiery burn of chest pain, and the knowledge that there is nothing I can do to fix it, just take it easy for a few days and let it figure itself out.
Lesson learned? Pay attention, even when doing simple things at the gym. Stupid me.
