Shot in the back

478629005_XS[1]Since my long bear crawl on Saturday I have had two instances where I had what I assume were back spasms, right around my left shoulder blade.  The first time was Sunday when I was simply stretching both arms overhead.  This morning it happened again when I was bending down to reach for something.    Both times it felt like I was stabbed in the area, taking my breath away and making it hard to breathe for a short duration.  For the next few minutes I walked around with my left arm tucked in until the pain got milder.

The pain this morning was super intense, bad enough that I thought going to the gym might be out of the question.  Although I could still feel a dull ache in the region it didn’t stop from doing much at the gym including chin ups, dips, along with other bicep/tricep weighted work.  For now I will just assume it is a byproduct of doing bear crawls at nearly 48 years old.
