Special Hell

The good news:

I rode my bike to the office this am. 17 minutes. (At 715Am, not much traffic.)
Parked the bike in the office and went across the street to 24 Hour Fitness, where I did push-ups, crunches, core-work, weights etc.


I seem to have triggered a muscle spasm in the right side of my neck. The weird thing is that I think it happened while I was walking up the stairs to the locker room. I was FINE on the bicycle, but while I was going up stairs, I grabbed the bannister to steady myself and I could FEEL something go weird.

By the time I was in the locker room, my range of motion felt off and I was in a certain amount of discomfort while working out, which I'd stay graduated to pain by the time I got to the office.

I took ibuprofen, but it didn't help much. I have some Flexeril at home and I'm hoping that will work. I'll also use a massager and maybe soak in hot water. I'm on a roll both with food and exercise and I don't want to lose it now.
