health stuffs

Shoulder status; still healing. It's mostly ok, but still gets sore in the mornings. I'm going to start slowly working it next week, at half weight.

Spider bites; healing well.

General Health; cruddy - I picked up con cooties at TBR, so I'm fighting off a cold. I also seem to be exceptioanlly infection prone right now; I had a small scratch on my hand that got all nasty overnight. It's cleaned out and healing as well, but normally, I don't think it would have gotten infected. I suspect tiredness and stress are to blame.

I also finally found a reference to explain my sensitivity to stimulants: this place mentions that people with thyroid problems often report sensitivity to things like caffeine and pseudoephedrine, which matches my experience, and explains why I used to be able to drink coffee.

My exercise schedule has gone down the toilet; I haven't exercised since early last week, and probably won't be able to again until some time next week. The jujutsu class has ended without me having had a chance to talk to the instructor, which I feel guilty about. I wanted to at least tell him why I'd skipped most of the course.

When you re-introduce workouts to your shoulder, keep in mind that the most important thing is the range of motion in your shoulder. Make sure that, whatever exercises you're doing, you cover the full range you want your shoulder to have (or as close to it as you can manage without pain). If this means performing some exercises at one-third or one-quarter normal weight for the moment, then so be it.

Stretching is also important in this, naturally.

A lot of people, in trying to get themselves back to "normal" performance will end up limiting their range of motion, which sucks -- particularly for martial arts and the like.

As for the jujutsu instructor -- don't worry. So long as you're at the same gym, I'm sure you'll get an opportunity to speak with him eventually.
