I wasn’t kidding when I shared about the bra that threatens to dislocate my shoulder post workout.
Last Saturday, I wore it because it was my last clean sports bra…
When I went to take my shower…OMGoodness, I can't get this off. call it a draw-back to being a single mom perhaps… There I am with the darn thing halfway off, or me halfway out, but I can't get it above my shoulders. I thought I might have to call my 11 year old daughter: “Honey, help Mommy out of her bra.” But she's just entered that super private stage and I thought the image I saw in the mirror might scar her so I took a deep breath, contemplated my situation and inched the damn thing off. Left side up and inch, right side up an inch. Repeat till I was free. As I did so, I knew there would be a muscle somewhere in my back that would protest in a day or so.
And it did.
Maybe I should have cut myself out of it?
My BF came over Sunday and tried to get my back to chill out. Lectured me about how I need to stretch more.
I threw the offending bra away on Monday while folding laundry.
I wasn’t able to sneeze for four whole days. Seriously. I would start to sneeze and the muscle just next to my left shoulder blade said “Oh, no you don’t B*$@#. I WILL put you on the floor.” and the sneeze just wouldn’t finish.
I rejoiced on Thursday when I sneezed during Bell Choir.
Ran yesterday and my angry muscle told me it was still holding a grudge but not so much that I wasn’t able to run for 30 minutes along the Ft. Ebey Bluff trail. Well, not so much run as hike/jog and a whopping 2 miles. UGH, I am so impatient to get back to where I was four years ago!
So this week was not so good for the running because… back issue excuses and I’m just not as BA as some of you. Also, I need to stretch more.
Pressing forward, next week will be better.
A few pics from the trail run because it was a perfectly beautiful day to be running in a nearly empty state park.
