Ouch, owee, oooh, I had an accident
Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Yesterday I tried to do an unassisted pullup on the assisted pullup machine. I folded the food rest platform out of the way and it was in front of the machine on the little wall that forms the structure of the machine.
Then I proceeded to pull myself up, unassisted. My body swung forward and both knees banged the metal front wall on the machine. I did my best to hold the inner scream of pain. I never grunt or make noise when I workout, as I don't like that kind of attention.
Next step: go find some to ice my knees. Within 15 minutes, I had plum sized bumps on both knees.
Today, probably due to the ice, the lumps on my knees are down in size, but still hurt. I am not deterred and will try again to do a pullup, but not on that machine.
