Sometime last week I started feeling a dull pain on my right side in what felt to be just beneath where my rib cage ends.  At my age aches and pains all over my body are pretty common place and I attributed it to something I pulled doing something at the gym.  Since that time the pain has remained, not really changing much in intensity but pretty much always present.  My “it will go away” timer will probably expire if it is still with me next week at this time, requiring me to get an opinion on it.  Although certain movements can cause a slight change in the feeling for the most part I have been able to carry on with my normal gym activities which is odd if it was muscular.

My Tacoma blew it’s water pump over the weekend so I got dropped off at work by my girlfriend.  My gym is too far away to reasonably walk to it over my lunch hour so I luckily was able to hitch a ride with my bench press buddy who works in the same government complex.  We did the dumbbell variety of chest press today followed by pull overs.  We burned out our chest at the end by getting 50 push ups as quickly as we could.  It took me a set of 35 followed by 15 to get there.
