So I talked to one of the physicians I work with about my forearm/hand swelling issue, and he confirmed my suspicions of chronic exertional compartment syndrome. Soooo no upper body, heavy grippy activity for 2ish weeks. Great. I was fully planning on ignoring this medical advice, but when I told Paul that I was planning on doing the rowing/pull up/thruster WOD today, he laughed at me and told me otherwise. So I did the Fitness Tester today....and got a massage...and whined....BUT DID NOT CRY. I feel generally ok about this, I'll share my thoughts later.
