Argh. A lot of football throwing over the weekend really screwed up my shoulder. Heavy and far throwing, after not throwing a football for almost a year. Not advisable.

Ok so decided to keep my "Cardio" workouts on here as well. Not really cardio...just trying to get the heart pumping (but not hardcore or anything). This will explain what I mean-
Aug 21st- around 30 min bike ride at a lesiurely pace
Today- Around 1 hr walk at the park, with some sprints done at the end for good measure.
