that’s me. damaged 😦
i managed to have my first work out related injury yesterday, and i gotta tell you…it’s not pleasant.
i raced home after work to fit in a work out before meeting up with a friend for dinner. it was her birthday yesterday and i was excited to see her and spend part of her day with her!
Anyways i had quite the day at work yesterday. the kind of day that i would punch a mere stranger if i thought it would make me feel better…but i thought…meh, save it for the work out.
I was totally pumped for this work out. I was giving it my all…all my aggression just melting away. with every kick and punch and funky dance move…i was feeling better.
until something wonky happened in my shoulder.
i dunno what the hell it was or how to even begin explaining it.
i felt this slight burn…and all of a sudden my shoulder felt like it was an elastic band that quickly lost all it’s elasticity.
it hurt…it burned…but not enough to make me stop my work out. I remember thinking…work through the pain bee.
And so i did. i finished the work out…showered, got dressed and picked up my bff for some bday goodness.
at this point…i was in pain.
but it doesn’t feel like my muscle is in that much pain…more so my shoulder bone. it feels bruised…and my skin is all patchy red. weird.
I got home and couldn’t remember what you did for a pulled muscle..which is totally what i am assuming i have. do you apply hot then cold or just cold or just heat?? So i just applied heat.
I had a craptastic sleep.
Last night i was debating whether i should work out tonight. this morning…the answer is a big fat no. no no no.
Maybe i will go out for a long walk tonight…so i don’t feel like i haven’t done anything…of course..minus the dog.
And as if that wasn’t bad enough….at 5am i found myself sitting up in bed yelping away in pain…apparently my body thought it would be hilarious to give me a charlie horse…you know…just for fun.
this is the second time in my life i have had one. the first one was about a year ago…at the exact same time. 5 am.
Crawling out of bed this morning…all hunched over…gimpy leg in tow…
i just had to laugh. this was totally the universes way of evening things out. it had to be. life was just too amazingly awesome as of late. something had to come along and piss me off.
ahhh it’s a bee’s life.
on to other news…a few of you have asked for the address to my personal blog. just send me an email. it is currently going under some major renos….but it will only be a few days me thinks.
have a good one kids…hope your night was better than mine and your day even better!
