pull up injury that can't be felt?

So I got what seems, to me, to be an odd issue.

I had about a year off from my local Crossfit (money reasons). The first workout I did when getting back into it was:


"08/29/2014

Rest 5-10 minutes between all events

50 pullups for time

3 min max distance yolk carry (+100/+0)

3 min max distance prowler push (+90/+50)

3 min AMRAP:
log clean and jerk, 100/50
The log is new to most of us, so use a weight you are comfortable with
with"

Before this workout, I could do 12-14 dead hang pull up anytime I walked up to a bar. Somehow (maybe cause it was a crossfit date), I was able to do 24 before I dropped from the bar during this workout. I had a huge amount of soreness in my arms for almost two weeks after. I didn't do anymore workouts for that time cause of how bad it was. Now I haven't been sore for weeks. But, I struggle to do two dead hang pull ups now. Am I still recovering or what is happening cause it's really bothering me?

So you haven't done a workout in a year, and your first time back you jump in to full wod mode with that workout above, and go for 24 pullups? Is that right?

That's pretty much correct. My job is physical so it keeps me in a little bit of shape.

DOMS. Look it up. You messed yourself up pretty good too it looks like. The effects can last up to a week in my experience.

Yeah, force production is inhibited when a muscle is dealing with DOMS. How much depends on how much damage is still prevalent.

You really buggered yourself there though the only time I've heard of DOMS over a week is Rhabdo.

I guess it could be DOMS. I just never witnessed it for more than a few days. Like I said, I don't actually feel anything negative, the numbers are just way down. Then again, it took me almost two weeks to be able to straighten my arms like normal. Before that, it was if I was doing tricep push downs to straighten my arms (if I could stand the pain from the soreness). Also, notice the date of the workout 08/29/2014

When you take time off, you will not be as strong, or fast, or etc as you were when you come back. Period. Took my about 6 months to be able to deadlift my old max after a 2 year break.

Two weeks sounds like a very long time for DOMS symptoms and have never dealt with Rhabdo personally but I would definitely have a doctor look into it. You may be saying your work keeps you fit but you're using those muscles in a totally different way then when you workout.
