Ryan's "Hope to compete again in 2014" log in Online Training Journals & Blogs Posted October 5, 2013 Been out of commission this past few days. On Wednesday I was working in the warehouse for a bit and out of nowhere, boom, it felt like someone stabbed me in the side. Pain has been nagging for the past 3 days now, no idea what brought it on as I was just walking back to a packing station (admittedly, with a 22 lb. bag of cat food balanced on top of my head ), a minute later, it all came on without any straining, heavy lifting, or anything else. Since then, it's pretty much constant minor to major discomfort, can't do much other than sit or walk, and even those two things can be touch-and-go for how much they hurt at times. I felt a small tweak when I was doing my squats last week, didn't give me any grief at that time, but I may have strained or torn something in that time. Basically, if feels like someone is knifing me just underneath my bottom left rib from the back side, sometimes I'm fine then it'll knock the wind out of me and I'll wince in pain. Not a fun little thing to deal with, and I'm sure I'll be sidelined for a few more days, but that's life I guess. Lifting will resume once I'm back in action!
