So – yesterday afternoon & evening I was so sore that I could barely move without wanting to moan in pain. (Which I did frequently, trying to elicit sympathy from the architect. That mostly didn’t work.) I think it was my wussy weights workout on Saturday. Which was wussy. It wasn’t any harder than any of the previous strength training workouts that I’ve done since getting back at the weights a couple of weeks ago, and in fact, after the workout I was so disgusted with the ease of it, that I went into the computer program & upped the time I wanted to allocate to the workout AND my goals (from ‘toning’ to ‘strength building’) so that I could actually feel like I was getting something done.
Apparently just changing my goals on the computer was enough to make my muscles work harder, because DAMN! I was sore last night.
Today – I feel much better. My abs are still a little tender, and I have soreness in my triceps, shoulders & pecs. But do you know what hurts today? My left wrist. It started bothering me last night, but today it is super painful! It feels all carpal tunnel-y, which is weird, because usually if I feel carpal tunnel-y at all, it’s in my right wrist (aka the mousing wrist).
So – do you think it’s weights-related? A grievous Farmville injury? Should I go ahead & lift tonight & see if it gets better? Worse? I feel super lame skipping a workout because my wrist hurts, but I don’t want to aggravate anything. It doesn’t really hurt to type (unless my pinky gets all out of control & moves too quickly), but it hurts to roll the wrist around.
Anyways – in good news, I got an ‘A’ on my paper (and want to thank all of you who volunteered to help me with my IT answers – unfortunately, the answers have to be specific to my workplace network, since I had to commit to one network at the beginning of class. Had I known how much of a pain in the ass this was going to be, I totally would have solicited IT volunteers a month ago. BYGONES!) and am solidly into B+ territory now – and think that as long as I stay on top of everything, I could possibly end up with my class ‘A’ as well. This week’s discussion involves the advantages & disadvantages of circuit switching vs. packet switching. Scintillating, no? The good news is I think I actually understand the discussion topic! I have five more weeks of this class left, including one more crazy discussion (about the internets! yay!) and two papers to go. I think the class probably won’t kill me – and them I’m on to better things! Like Creating Business Solutions! and Search Marketing!
