Ever have one of those weekends that things just don’t seem to go right? My team lost, my apartment is barely breaking 60 degrees fahrenheit, and the first thing I did on my birthday was sit up in and bed and listen to a loud crack as my neck decided it didn’t want to do anything for a few days. A minor muscle strain, probably from my short weight workout and hour long run in the rain the day before, it definately means at least a week off from lifting, probably more.

I have enough pictures taken to last the rest of the month for the animated exercise descriptions, but I may have to revisit variations on previous exercises if I am not able to get back in for another photo session. Hopefully I will be able to maintain the one a week pace.

On a bright note, I do have a new type of stretching to research and eventually write about on here.

The moral of this story (somehow) is that you should go see your doctor if you hear a loud crack and your neck experiences some sharp pains. Luckily, my doctor’s office has a sports med team upstairs that they can send down so that I don’t have to pay the specialist copay or waste time getting a referral. Don’t ask how that became the moral; just take my word for it.
