All banged up

What a day.

This afternoon I was in the weight room attempting to do this...



...and I ended up in the training room looking like this...



One dislocated shoulder later, here I am sitting around taking my painkillers. Last week I was out of commission due to the lower half of my body, so it only makes sense that this week I even it out. What fun is it having a healthy body? The shoulder is back in its proper place now but it does ache an awful lot so I suppose I'll just spend the next day or two figuring out exactly what movements require shoulder strength. Next week I'm praying for just a stubbed toe...something minor.

I'm so sorry. I can't really say much else. Hang in there. dp

Sorry to hear about the boo-boo. Hopefully, you'll be back in the swing of the things real soon. I dislocated my elbow before, so I feel your pain. The best thing to do is rest your shoulder and pop plenty of painkillers for a day or two.

Were you doing a snatch? I can power clean like 260-270 lbs, but for some reason I can't master the technique on the snatch. I definitely can see how it would be easy to dislocate a shoulder doing them.

Hope you feel better and are able to resume training real soon!

Ms. Glenn,
While I know it won’t help, I kinda like that slightly angry-pouty look in the photo. Very … uh …whatever.
But, wow, ya don’t got to hurt yourself to get it!
Seriously, be careful. You know how many people hurt themselves with improper lifting techniques (or for guys, using too much weight; ego reasons)?
Hope you heal fast.
Run Hard! (And lift appropriately)

Please do yourself a favor. See a sports doc who specializes in shoulder injuries. Do everything he/she suggests. If it's physical therapy--go and don't miss a session. A friend had the same injury a few years before I had the same injury. He did not listen to his doctor. As a result the shoulder is unstable and he's lost a lot of mobility due to scar tissue. I had surgery and was faithful to the therapy. Today I have full range of motion. The shoulder is stable and I'm stronger than before the injury. Please follow the doc's advice. GOOD LUCK!

Sorry, babe.

Get well soon!

You know I couldn't help but laugh at this blog, that picture was hilarious.

Didn't anonymous leave that exact same comment when you hurt your knee? It sounded really familiar.

Awwww, Briiii- I feel so bad for you... I've been with you during a lot of tough times and I think that's the saddest face I've ever seen you make.
On a seperate note, kudos to you for still managing to keep your sense of humor while putting this post together. As bad as I felt (and feel) I couldn't help but laugh when I scrolled down from the first picture... knowing you I have a feeling that was intentional.
Love you!!

I feel your pain Brianna! I have hurt myself a few times doing power snatches. If I decided to do them now....I use light weight. When I saw your picture I thought you lost your arm! I hope you recover quickly.
