Now that I have made my declaration to not over train I thought it was only fair for me to share my list, yes list, of injuries that I have since that post.
First there is the phantom pain in the abdomen that I have spoken of before. Pretty sure that was appendicitis but after realizing that my appendix is on the other side I will officially call it ab pain. After 2 days of hurting I was sure that I was one of those random people who had organs on wrong side and that my appendix was just traveling around in my abdominal cavity. Guess not. It is feeling a bit better than it was and is only hurting during really extreme workouts and certain movements, so pretty sure its just a strained muscle.
Wednesday I began to have a new pain, new to me completely. My Achilles tendon has been giving me some pain. It hurts pretty much all of the time. This is only day 3 of the pain and I have been looking at information about this tendon online. Self diagnosis.....that is never dangerous. Most everything I have read says that an increase in mileage often causes this kind of pain, and it is really likely in women, between the ages of 18-30. Man, I was just a poster child for this injury.
Then there is the shoulder catch that has flared back up. I guess this is what I get for making fun of my workout buddy for so many nights about her shoulder hurting. She kept telling me it hurt when she ran, well there are lots of things that hurt when you run and a shoulder is not one of them.....(eating crow and no longer making fun!)
I am a firm believer in the 7 day pain strategy. If it hurts for more than 7 days then I will go to the doctor. If I went every time something hurt I would be paying a fortune in medical bills for soreness. I am a little over dramatic when it comes to pain and I'm always scared that if I go to the doctor they are going to put me in a cast or on crutches and then I don't know what I would do. Right now I'm looking forward to ice and Alieve and bed. That cures more than doctors sometimes.
Anyway, that is my list of ailments right now, just give me 5 minutes and I'm sure I can come up with something else that hurts.
