Just had to sack second training session in past fortnight due to pain across top of my left forearm. I’ve had pain like this before believing it to be spragged muscle fibers. Given the location near to the bone and far away from the forearm muscle groups I decided it was time to engage that steller brain of mine (aka Google) as to the problem.
I came across Radial nerve impingement, pain, burning, numbness – all sounds about right. The problem is that I wouldn’t have said I was particularly cold, or was rushing my warm-up when this happened. The second time I was defiantly aware of the twang as I held a JUG! Really annoying as I need two days rest for recovery.
I guess the next step is some research into muscle balance and stretching again…
