Hoping to get some feedback because this is the first time this has happened. I err on the side of more sensitivity to my body than less so it’s quite possible I am overreacting here. The problem is that I’ve read up a bunch of stuff on Rhabdo, and now like any time you start reading about some disease, it’s all too easy to start seeing the symptoms everywhere.
My schedule for the last three days has followed the mainsite:
Monday - Light weights/strength work + Helen
Tuesday - Medium weights/strength work including KB swings + Omar
Wednesday - Crossfit warmup including 45GHD situps + Weighted pullups
This was the first time I have done any GHD situps since about five months ago (I used to use them in every single warmup and never had a problem).
Today (Thursday) this morning I woke up with quite a bit of soreness in my abs. This slowly got worse and worse over the course of the morning until a point where I could hardly stand and even lying down was painful. This was pretty bad, probably the worst soreness I’ve had after a workout before (although not by much).
I noticed my pee was darker than usual, certainly not coca-cola coloured but definitely not white either, more like a darkish yellow.
I looked over my previous three days of workouts and realised there had been a LOT of eccentric ab work - Helen’s KB swings, further KB swings and planks on Tuesday, then GHD AND weighted pullups on Wednesday. This has got me worried, especially as it has been such a long time since I last did GHDs.
Now, after eating lunch and drinking a buttload of water most of the ab pain has gone away completely.
My question is: what should I be doing? Are there any clear and obvious warning signs I should be looking out for?
Bear in mind I am currently in Chile and checking myself into the hospital will be expensive and involve a tricky language barrier. If I have to, I’ll do it but it’s not a zero-cost option.
