Have any of you ever hurt yourself while spinning?

I managed to pull a muscle in my arm from drafting for three solid hours, lol. 

I know there has to be some good stories out there!

Oooh I have a combination injury.  I just started working out again last month and went and did resistance on my legs and then cardio as well.  I was fine the next day, no soreness, so I spun up a BUNCH of yarn, about 8 ounces worth.  The next day my right leg (single treadle wheel) hurt so bad that I had to lay on the couch with a heating pad on it.  I was in agony all day.  It was horrible.

I make sure to take a day off now after I do training on my legs.  LOL!

LOL, this thread is so funny. I spent one afternoon picking and teasing some wool. My forearms were killing me! Cheesy

If I don't pay attention, my foot slides in between the spokes of the wheel when I spin.  I keep checking my toes to make sure it won't happen, but sometimes...  Grin

My injuries mainly come from batting my Evil Bad Cat away from the wheel.   Her claws are SHARP!  Cheesy

I have no idea what you're talking about, so here's me with some yarn on my head.

Try prying two kittens away from mounds of wool and fleece.  They like to chew on anything wool (don't ask me why...) and I've got some battle scars from disconnecting them from it.  Ah, kittens.

Ouch!  I didn't even think about that happening. 

I second (third?) the kitty injuries.  Mine is obsessed with the leather straps on the footmantreddle join point thingy, and to have to constantly move him out of the way to keep him from getting smacked in the face by various wheel parts.  Needless to say, he didnt like it.

And then there was a time I found 2oz of very carefully prepared merino strewn all over the apartment in tattered little balls...

I spent 4 (yes FOUR) hours hand carding when I first got my hand cards and I could barely move the next day my back was on fire!

I have a new one to add.  LOL!  I got a drum carder and used it a ton on the first day I got it and haven't been able to use it since.  My wrist hurts so bad when I move it.  That isn't a muscle you use much.  LOL!

Mine are mostly just sore feet and knees, but this morning my little girl reached out to touch the pretty green fiber as it spun around on the bobbin and got her fingers whacked by the flyer
