Injured today! :0(

Well today I was all hyped up and excited because I got my computer back! Been without it now for 3 days and I now realize that I am addicted to my computer and my online community of friends!

My day had a turn for the worse! I was doing my chest workout finished doing decline flys, worked my way over to the smith machine did all 5 sets of flat bench presses and even hit a personal record of 120lbs for six, and then I set up for incline presses, had 70lbs on the bar, lifted it up had no problem for three reps, then number four, and whamoo!!! A massive pain, not sure if it was a tear, a stretch, a bone going in the wrong direction or what but I couldn't move for about 5 minutes. I couldn't even lift my head up! It took everything I had to not ball my eyes out right there in the gym! I managed to get up get changed, and call my chiropractor who got me in as soon as he could. 2:30 came and he advised me that I had torn a ligament on my C7 (whatever exactly that meant), all I know is that he made it sound that the C7 was not a very good place to have out of whack! So I was adjusted and told to ice it for 15 minutes every hour. And to come back on Saturday. I was also told that if it hurts or pulls at all to stop what I am doing and ice it. So I am currently de-railed! It is a good thing I am still over 14 weeks out!

Called Tony to let him know about it too, and he said he was posting a leg workout for me tomorrow so I can rest it, and let the muscles recover!

Okay enough sob story....it is bed time! Till we meet again........
