|My Wrist. Who knew this position could be so painful?|
Starting in January I was trying to get more pushups & planks in as well. I noticed my right wrist would occasionally hurt so instead of straight arm planks I changed it to forearm planks & dropped the pushups from the plan. In yoga I was feeling the pain as well. An occasional twinge during plank, chaturanga & downward dog.
I took about 3 weeks off from these activities due to my trip. During my first yoga practice after the time off the pain was even worse. I was confused since I hadn't done anything to aggravate it that I was aware of. Yesterday's yoga practice was horrible. The pain got to the point I couldn't put any pressure on it. I have no idea what happened. Not sure how to proceed with treatment since rest seemed to make it worse. I am thinking it may be a trip back to my ART practitioner.
Although it doesn't bother me when I swim, bike or run, yoga is the plan to keep the rest of me healthy. The good thing with yoga is there are a million & one modifications to poses. In the meantime, I will switch to weights to get my upper body workout.
Week 2 of SBBC was marginally better than the first week. The biggest problem these days is that I cannot seem to get enough sleep. For me there are 3 possible reasons why - sick, depressed or allergies. Looking at the calendar, not to mention the weather channel, it is most likely the later. Oh well - I know from experience I should be all good by end of April.
