So I decided over the weekend to take several days off, because my joints were starting to hurt, as opposed to the usual muscle pain. Thought I might have been overdoing it. I went to Kitty Hawk, NC (The Outer Banks) yesterday to hang out with some friends from work, one of which has a cottage there for the week. I woke up this morning with pain on the anterior of my forearm, and the muscle over top of the radius, proximal to my wrist is swollen and painful. I have no f'n idea what this is from. Still hurts right now, and I'm slightly worried that it's broken, although I have NO idea how or why it could have happened. Hopefully just a muscle strain, since I dug a 5 ft deep hole yesterday in the sand.
We do strange things under the influence.
Today while at the beach, I played catch with the ocean. If you've never done this, I urge you to try it.
I threw a ball into the surf and sprinted to where it would wash back up onto the sand, then threw it again. I did this until the ocean apparently didn't want to play anymore and kept the ball.
Then I did 33 alcohol-fueled burpees in the surf. The water was cold as shit. I think 58 degrees is what the official report was. The cold water, plus pushing up off the sand, and the tide trying to pull me out, made this very difficult. Fun though
So now I'm back home in VA with a pretty bad sunburn, and an arm that hurts like fuck.
