"I did something stupid about a month ago." That's exactly what I said to my chiropractor as I explained how I injured my shoulder. Do any of you know Menards it's like Home Depot. Anyway I was moving huge rolls of remnant carpets trying to find a deal and a good color. I suddenly felt a tweak in my shoulder. Like most people I ignored it. When it still hurt the next day I iced, stretched and ran. I went on like this for a month until it got so bad this Tuesday I couldn't breath without pain. Dumb.
So this week I've iced every hour, visited the chiropractor twice, and tried to rest as much as possible. Which has meant no running. It's made me a little depressed. I'm 5 weeks away from my race. This needs to get better. I'm praying it does.
On the upside I got this email yesterday
One race at a time though. So for now I'll keep icing and resting and trying not to go loony toons while waiting to run.
