Shoulder ping…dang it…

Ok, in Friday’s swim, I pinged my right shoulder; I could feel it when it happened.

It isn’t bad but it did make me use a LOT of caution today.

Pull ups: 5 sets of 10, done SLOWLY. Wow…that increased the good burn too.
rotator cuff: did the pulley (3 sets), dumbbells (3 sets) and “shrug presses” (3 sets)
bench press: 10 x 135, 4 x 185 (careful), 7 x 170 (careful); I did not push myself
inline press: 10 x 135 (slow)
standing dumbbell military press: 3 sets of 10 x 40
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50 each arm
core: headstand (distracted…had to focus), planks: 2 minute front, 30 seconds each side.

I was drenched with sweat afterward; keeping the movements slower and more controlled helped. And my shoulder didn’t hurt.

Swim: felt it a bit.
500: alt 25 free, 25 back (felt the free just a bit)
500: alt 25 drill, 25 swim (fins); 4 were front, 4 were side, 1 was sfs.
That’s it for today.

Such it is with me as an older guy; a bit of hypochondria now can save a month long forced lay-off later. 🙂
