...until I tried to do upper body work. Couldn't lift worth a darn. Couldn't figure out why. I knew I was sore, but I've learned that the best way to work out soreness is to work out again. But not this time. It just made things worse, and later that day I was having trouble just raising my arms above my shoulder.
A day or two later, I noticed a bruise on my forearm, caused by banging my arm on a rail Wednesday when I slipped going down some stairs. I'd caught myself before I went down completely but I'd known I'd hit my arm.
A few minutes later the whole situation clicks into place.
I'd injured my shoulder as well on Wednesday, and then tried to lift weights on it on Thursday.
Someday I'll figure out which pain to pay attention to and which to ignore!
