So... I injured my upper back (either Lat or Serratus) the other day doing one-arm rows and now I'm starting to get extremely aggravated sitting around waiting to get back to training. I'm a Pharmacy/pre-med student so I'm conscious of proper healing and not willing to rush anything. But... I'm SO BORED.
Training is how I relieve my school and other stresses. Right now the injury is annoying enough that I can't take 100% deep breaths so even hard cardio is out. I'm basically limited to slightly painful uphill walking or moderately painful elliptical. I suppose I could ride a bike but I'd rather not set foot in that part of the gym.
What do you all do to alleviate boredom and "nontraining anxiety" when you're injured??

I live in Vancouver, BC so it's virtually never nice out here. I'm going to try to go to the gym for about an hour each day to do some uphill treadmill walking or elliptical to keep moving. I have an iPad so I can do some studying while keeping at least some level of fitness!

I thought it was totally fine as there was no pain the rest of the day or next day... but such is the benefit of delayed onset muscle soreness I guess. Then last night I reinjured it by training when I felt 100% - but the Dr. told me today not to feel bad about that as I could have just as easily reinjured it turning around too fast or lifting my backpack.
Anyway... it hurts like a biatch but it's on the mend. One thing is for sure - I have a lot more respect for the 1-arm row and proper technique!
