I found myself by the side of the basketball court last Wednesday grabbing my lower left chest, and feeling all that pain.

It was a mid air collision with who I thought was an opponent when it turned out it was a team mate. Next thing I knew his elbow hit my rib ---hard.

Last Saturday morning I tried to run but it was too painful that I only lasted a little over 3km. It was a bad run.

Until today (Tuesday) I can still feel the pain so I guess it's still sore from that impact. Nursing it with Salonpas and Ibuprofen is not helping.

Hopefully this thing heals over time, especially before my April 21st duathlon.



  1. Oh man, I know exactly how you feel. Last Dec I fell on ice and hit my rib cage. I couldn't run for about 2 weeks because of breathing. But it will heal man. Stay off the court man. lol. Geeeez! After about a week, I remember I could jog really slow though. Just take a steady dosage of ibuprofen. hang in there.

  2. Thanks Kenley! It seems that this thing is not healing for almost a week now. Perhaps I'm not taking the meds regularly. I'll go see a doctor today and hopefully it just needs the right prescription. I hope it's just all muscle and not fractured bone. :(
