Sure, I'm not getting younger but the fact remains that I have almost never been in good physical shape and thus while trying to get into better shape I need to learn to limit what I am doing until I build up to the proper tolerances and whatnot. I over do things and push myself harder than I should and as a result I get aches and pains that are above normal or ordinary.
Case in point, with the whole moving adventure that happened recently. I wanted to make sure that it all got done as quickly as possible so that I didn't have to drag it out. There were points where I didn't have the help that I required and so I did what any self respecting man would do and said "fuck it, I can do this myself."
Problem is that I really couldn't and needed to wait for help. There was one piece of furniture in particular that had moving parts and based on the way I was holding it and the way that it slammed down upon my wrist and sent a horrendous pain through my arm I honestly thought I broke it. However it was just a bruise/sprain/something painful without the bone fragmenting. I could barely use it for 3-4 days and even after that it hurt to put pressure on it.
On top of that there were things I moved by myself where I ended up having to rest most of the weight on my shoulder and of course I chose my bad one. So that brought me back to feeling almost like I did when I tore my Rotator Cuff a few years back.
The end result of all of that was not being able to do my exercises, specifically push-ups, for about 2 weeks. Now I'm trying to get back into the routine and it's basically like starting all over again, only slightly stronger.
The last few days I have done a minor amount of push-ups but have forgotten to document them on my little tab up there but hopefully that will change in the near future. Today I was able to rattle off 15 of them and felt good about that but we will see how I feel tomorrow.
I also did a plank for the first time today and lasted a whole 30 seconds. WOOOO, I suck.
Whatever. I'm trying and not giving up after a period of inactivity like I would have previously.
However, Now I'm going to put some food in my belly and then watch more of The Walking Dead Season 2. I might throw in a little exercise between episodes.
