Ouch. Crud.

OK, so we let my rogue muscle or whatever heal for a good week and a half. And during today's workout, the plan was to get back to some sit-ups and push-ups. I gave it a gentle test yesterday, and first thing this afternoon, and all seemed good.

When the time came, I sat down, and knocked out 20 situps. Easy-peasy. So I turned around to try for some pushups.

By the time I hit 10, it felt like someone was sticking a knife in my gut. I struggled to get 15, and couldn't do more.

10 minutes later (it was another circuit like yesterday, only with leg exercises instead of arms) and I couldn't even do 3 sit-ups without pain. And no pushups. BUT... I could do crunches. And I could do push-ups on my knees, no problem at ALL. And I could do one "oblique" exercise, but not another.

As I said before, "Not good."

I have an appointment with the doc for Thursday morning. I hope he's got a magic pill, because I'm really really starting to fear that this might be more serious than just a pulled muscle.

Sigh.
