FUCK it all

Well great. Just GREAT. Fine and dandy. Saturday, my first work out back in Seattle, my first workout with John and Melanie and all the Calpians, I go and fuck up my wrist. Like ROYALLY fuck it up. Not just "Ow this kind of hurts." I mean like go to the ER in agony type fuck-up. Just great. Goodbye nationals.

Started out nice enough.

I was rocking the cleans up until that fucking 75. Mentally I just wasn't there. Went under it too late, caught it out front, forced my wrist all the way back, heard a bunch of cracking and popping, and the rest was history. Couldn't move it more than 5 degrees either way. I just completely broke down after that because I knew it was bad. It never hurt like this the last time I fucked it up, and the fact it hurt this bad ... well I knew it was bad. So I had a major cry-session for like an hour. Then I squatted.

Hi Rizzo,
this is Andrew from the Crossift forum. Thanks for helping me with my questions, I hope you don't mind if I poke around your blog for training ideas and other useful weightlifting info. As someone who just started O-lifting there is a lot of valuable information. And that totally sucks about your wrists. I have been having crazy wrist pain, and REALLY crazy pain in the first knuckle of my index fingers since I started lifting. Also numbness in my thumbs every morning when I wake up. The snatch be a harsh mistress...

(ps - I'm not sure if a blog entry that has expletives in block caps in the heading qualifies as wfs. I opened it in front of a sensitive family member and got burned.)

Shit happens, what was the outcome of your wrist. Keep an open mind, ice the shit of it, take some anti inflam's, you'll be ok.

Have a good Holiday
