I've been doing a lot of basic training for a while, and I've been doing a lot of reading, but I tried something I shouldn't have and f#cked up big time. Then I think I pretty much made it worse. Basically here's what's happened.
Some kid was doing filming, and so I thought I'd try something that was a bit of a push. Unfortunately it ended up being more than a bit of a push. I tried to Kong two trashcans pushed together. The trashcans are about 4 feet tall and four feet across. I'm a confident guy, so I went at it full speed. Big mistake. I slammed into hard concrete big time. I didn't feel good, but I got back up and was able to keep my head straight. When I hit the ground, I heard a weird sound in my right ear which I fell on, like I lost my hearing for a second. My jaw was really sore, and I didn't realize it then, but I think I really f#cked up my wrist. I went on and did some running around in some Parking Garages with a friend a little later. We didn't do a lot, just f#cking around-no good training. Yet when I went to a gym again that night (oh god, is this a sign that I'm over pushing it?) I didn't even want to try anything because my wrist was hurting so bad. This was all yesterday. Today I iced it, then put some heat on it, then wrapped it up, and have kept it wrapped all day. It still hurts a bit, but it doesn't feel horrible. I have little aches and pains all over my body, and a few scrapes and bruises.
I realized I was over doing pretty much everything, so I let myself take the next few days off, and I said I'd basically not work out at all, not run, not even walk fast until at least Saturday, and then evaluate the situation from there. Do you guys think this is a good course of action?
