Baby-ing my shoulder/neck

Still not 100% (I’d say about 70%), so I am going on the eliptical rider this evening before heading to school. 40 mins worth of cardio should be good and if the shoulder gives me too much trouble, then I’ll just dangle the arms useless by my side and give my legs an extra hard workout. Problem solved! 😉

No-go today?

I woke up this morning (which in itself is a very good thing!) with a very sore right shoulder/neck. I have pains shooting from my shoulder to my shoulder blade up my neck. Not all the time, but I can feel the knot in the muscle that travels from my shoulder to the neck, putting a kink into everything. I am thinking I must have slept wrong and agitated something. I am going to stop tonight and get some heating pads and try a hot/cold treatment at home. (Hard to do that at work lol)

I am suppose to run 3 miles today, but I’ll switch it with tomorrorw’s rest day.

Edit: Did not run in the evening. Did not get home until ~ 8pm and my shoulder is still sore.
