I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos! And I have the absolute best wife in the world. And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!
AM- an hour on the bike. Yawn. Ribs are improving but still painful, especially when I sneeze or try to lift something heavy with my right arm.

i bruised a rib or two in a river-tubing-gone-wrong episode back in 2013.
i recall that the pain got worse after 3-4 days. initially my only discomfort was a sharp pain every time i breathed in (which made running annoying). then that subsided and it turned into a deep ache that was more constant, and really sharp if i did something bad like turn abruptly, move in my sleep, sneeze (ahhh!), etc. the hardest thing was getting in and out of my car.
i think this lasted another 3-4 days and then everything subsided a lot and i was running and moving fine again in just over a week. random sharp pains continued for about a month, but only with the wrong movements like abruptly twisting my torso (sorry, frisbee).
i understand severity is different for everyone though, so i hope this doesn't linger too long for you and hope it feels better soon.
