It is a bit bizarre to have gone from all these wild high mileage high instensity workout training posts to this very minimal running rundown each week now, but here it is for what it's worth :) I am most certainly in a down time/recover/repair phase, and it is important. But I am also most certainly excited to hopefully get out of this phase soon!
I had a bit too much action for the shoulder this week, tweaked something bad and have a pinched nerve or something in the neck, pain scale was 10 friday night, I am taking naproxen and using tiger balm. Ouch! I stopped massaging it/stretching because it seemed to irritate it more. I saw my therapist thursday for massage, but I think it was just too much for the shoulder this week between cleaning, boxing, moving stuff, PT exercises, and then helping clean out office storage at the office Friday AM plus driving to Michigan on top of that. I have been resting as best as I can for the weekend and not doing anything strenuous. It is feeling better, but not 100%. My lower back/hip flexor/hip are also still a little inflamed from all the driving/sitting.
The measly totals :)
3 runs, about 20 miles total and did PT on M, T, W, TH, FRI. Massage thursday night.
A bit of dancing Thursday night!
I really am enjoying the PT, but may have been a bit too focused on always keeping my core engaged, trying to ease back into it a little slower this round after the shoulder nonsense! Sometimes it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks ;) But I am getting there!
