This month hasn’t been the worst ever, but it has been trying. I came down with the flu-like-crud on December 1st. This rendered my attempts to train futile. I think I’ve logged a single, solitary run this month. It took 3 weeks to recover. I had hoped that during this time my shoulder would recover. I injured it back at the end of October, and I’m not really sure HOW. Sadly it did not improve.
I went to the doctor today and the good news is that the x-rays and examination did not prove to be remarkable. The bad news is that it still hurts! The doc gave me a cortisone shot along with prescriptions for an anti-inflammatory and physical therapy. I start the medication today and will go to PT on Monday. Hopefully this course of action will yield results where my previous plan of limiting use did not. My next IM is not that far out in the future!
