The reason I'm so hesistant to see a doc is because of my current location. The docs here tend to blow you off if you need anything minor or what they consider preventative. They'd rather wait til it breaks and try to patch it up.
BtB, there's no grind, not really an awkward feeling, no pain, and no after-effects. Best way to describe it is like maybe there are two small protrusions facing each other inside the joint, and as they pass, there's a slight catch with an audible click (not the same as cracking or popping joints, think clicky pen), and then business as usual until it passes that point again. Same spot everytime. Had it again yesterday, but not until my work sets this time. I was feeling good and didn't want to pass a chance to train OHP.
Could have sworn I post this last night, but I was pretty distracted by the end of the day.
Standing Calf Raises
The calf raises were a last minute addition. I had already returned my towel and put my hoodie on to leave, but I was walking past the machine on my way out, and I heard it taunting me with things like "Long time no see" and "Bet you can't do the whole stack!". So I did.
My Training Log
Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:
Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.
