I did something crazy bad to my shoulder while working out yesterday. I'm not quite sure what happened, but I have a feeling that my time on the elliptical machine -- when I was holding on to the moving handles and every time I pulled them back toward me it was like I was winding up to throw a shot put -- had something to do with it. I didn't really feel anything until I'd gotten off the machine and gone over to the drinking fountain to fill up my water bottle and, reaching down, heard (and felt) something in my neck/shoulder area go pop. An explosion of blue-black pain smacked my back teeth. My entire left side seized up and for a split second I was worried I might pass out. Whatever it was passed, though, and I made it out to my car okay. I think I just overdid it.

I went out after work looking for one of those electric heating pads, but they're all too expensive (like, $30 or $40). I ended up buying some one-time-use heat patches instead. The box came with a special warning: "DO NOT APPLY HEAT PATCH TO GENITALS OR EYE AREA." I sometimes regret not going to law school because you know there was a civil case that set that precedent, and I would have loved to have been a part of it.

Yoga tomorrow morning, if I wake up in time.
