I have been practicing Pavel's power Galloping ALOT recently, and aside from doing normal "slow" practice where I do everything perfectly while I gradually increase the tempo, I have started using the Speed trainer feature in GP5.

I am practicing this one section over and over, and each time the section repeats it gets bumped up 1-2 BPM. And during during this I start making small mistakes cuz I start to push myself real hard around the 85 BPM area. Anyway, my practice sessions it usually repeats about 15 times, and after this my left wrist (fretting hand) feels a little uncomfortable, I wouldnt really call it pain, but its pretty uncomfortable.... almost painful I would say. And the discomfort goes away pretty quickly (I usually stop playing after I do this workout) and after I stop playing, it goes away in about 5-10 minutes.

Anyway. Is this a problem? should I stop playing the moment I feel that discomfort? Could I just ignore this?

Sorry for making this explanation a little lengthy.
