Good shoulder pain…
May 12, 2014
Both of my shoulders hurt, but it’s DOMS not joint pain. Or maybe the DOMS is overwhelming the usual joint pain….
Rope climbs on Saturday. When I first did rope climbs in CrossFit I would do them legless. Not because I’m a beast, but because I’m totally uncoordinated. I could not figure out how to work arms and legs together.
Now I get how to work the rope with my legs. (Hint: don’t wrap the rope around your dominant leg). But I still don’t get the “push with your legs don’t pull with your arms thing.” I mean – I “get it” – logically. It’s not all there physically.
Though my legs helped a lot on Saturday I still did too much pulling with my arms, and my shoulders are reminding me of this. Maybe I should have tried for a shoulder rub yesterday. After all, I’m hurting. Then again, asking my wife to rub “my” shoulders on Mother’s Day would not have been the wisest of questions…
and I have a nice sunburn to cope with too.
‘sposed to hit 98° on Wednesday. Woohoo!
