Almost there...

Wednesday, April 01, 2009


So I saw this video posted on BoingBoing last night, and I've been getting that little ache in my elbow lately that warns me I'm mousing too much.

I waited til this afternoon to go find the video again and try it.

He started describing the first stretch and I followed along. I got to the bit where he has his thumbs tucked into the fist and rolls the fists downwards and my left wrist said, "Wha-ha-ha-ha!!! What is that?!?!" I held the stretch for a few seconds and let it go. There was tension on the right wrist, but nothing like the sharp pain on the left.

The rest of the stretches are good too. I'll be doing these several times a day til things stop feeling so... angry. I hadn't even realized how bad it was til that moment. That little ache? It's got a big angry bully standing behind it. Time to placate the bully and take better care of my body.


  • If there's a sharp pain, that you should not be doing that stretch. Soreness ok, sharp pain bad. I'd rest that for a bit.
