Nothing to See Here



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.

Yeeeep I've experienced that before! Not fun. Also not fun being lectured and knowing they're right, boo!

Not to revel in your misfortune, but the image of someone celebrating after a sneeze is one I can't stop laughing at.
