Hope I don’t die
My injury is a punk right now. I think I pushed it too hard on that 5k on Friday.
The thing that really sucks about this type of injury at least for me, is it doesn’t hurt when I exercise. In fact it takes hours for pain & tightness to kick in. Usually at night and early first thing in the morning before I get out of bed.
I jumped on the treadmill this morning for the first time since Friday and immediately was in mild pain. I thought it might work itself out and kept going. A run just wasn’t in the cards today.
.50 mile 4:31minutes
Feeling frustrated and defeated, I came home and took the dogs for a long walk at the park. I ran into my cycling buddy and he talked me into a long (for me right now) ride tomorrow with his riding group.
Oh well I kept myself busy shopping for Mike the rest of the day.
And went to the doc for a TB test.
They made me wait for 20 minutes and I was board so took pictures. Then played Sudoku on my phone.
It wasn’t bad at all. But then again needles don’t bother me. Just yackers. But that’s another story.
I have all of my cycling gear out, Gatorade ready and Garmin charging.
