Five Miles That Did Not Happen
I wanted to be writing about a glorious 5 miler that I completed this evening. I was going to be a great run, I just knew it. But it didn't happen.
Because I have an ailment of a 70 year old woman. I did something to my neck and I can not turn my head. I seriously look like Frankenstein. So rather than strapping on the running shoes, I was strapped to my chiropractor's table. I spent an hour of bone cracking fun in her office.
I have been dealing with a bad muscle knot in my shoulder blade for about 6 weeks. I just figured I slept on it funny and it would work itself out. It has been gradually getting worse and today everything went into a spasm which resulted in me not being able to move.
I definitely feel a lot better after my visit with the miracle worker but I am still in a lot of pain. I hope by my next visit later this week, I should be feeling good. I do not want to miss any more runs now that I am getting up there with mileage with the long runs.
Two steps forward, one back. At least it is nothing too serious to keep me out of the game.
