As you all know I do crossfit. As of about 3 weeks ago my body started to tell me it was taking to much of a beating. I did not listen....whats new?Anyhow. I've been doing the ice on ice on deal. Today I was like " come on Jen you're a crossfiter....ice like a CF'er!" So I went into the back yard and busted up some snow and ice. Put it in a bucket and filled the bathtub with cold water. Take a deep breath! In I go! I was yelling so loud the dogs ran off to hide! Four full body dips at about 15 seconds each. Then I would hang my whole arm in for as long as I could. Taking turns between arms and then legs. Can I do it again tomorrow? We will see. It was hella cold! Why buy ice when I have a whole back yard full of it. I can take the leaves and grass out of the tub when it's empty!!LOLOL!

whoa sorry bout the injuries! i've been thru a bunch (knee, shldr, back, neck, butt) and the toughest part for people like us is just taking some time off! of course i never took the time off, i just adjusted the wkouts around the injury. also, i trusted my own intuition about my body and didnt listen to some advice from quack doctors who didnt even workout themselves (take these drugs and dont exercise at all)....

That sounds miserable. Have you tried windmills? My understanding is that one of the problems with the shoulder is that it gets relatively little oxygen, which is why injuries seem to nag on so long there.

Low impact PT-style stretchy exercises always help me too. Are you sure you don't need to see a doctor about this? This thing seems to be have been pestering you for a while now.

Mike, I talk to an Ortho Pod that I'm friends with and was very discouraged with her answer..."I can give you a shot for the pain" She is a specialist of women and sports injuries. What a let down! Anyway I will be looking in to getting some PT as soon as I can get a referral.

Shot for the pain? Yeesh, hopefully there's not a tear.
