My goodness gracious. What a crazy week. I know a busy week for me is a good thing and this week has topped the cake as far as busy goes but its been a good one too.
I have not been able to workout hardly at all this week. I ran on Monday, twice actually, but all week long my neck and back pain was so bad that I could hardly move much less run or workout. I was pretty sure that my neck pain was never going to get better, my neck, chest, back and arm were hurting and the night before my doctors appointment I got so torn up that I was having a heart attack that I could not get settled down. I was up most of the night and I finally got out of bed and got ready for my appt. I was not having a heart attack and I officially have sympathy for people who talk about having a panic attack and go to the ER cause they think they are having a heart attack.
My doc appointment went fine. The doc was not my favorite person in the world, I really thought we were going to fight at one point but he did give me some relief. I will not be going back to him. He said I was all tied up in a knot, could be stress, who knows, but he basically gave me an adjustment and muscle relaxers and I feel like a whole new person. I am not allowed to do anything strenuous for 3 days and I will gladly take 3 more days off it will make this pain go away forever. I think I am going to start going to the chiro more frequently so I don't run into this problem ever again.
My other small victory for the week that I must share. It is fair week in my town which means lots of very bad for you food and I have done great. Ok, I cant really take all the credit for it because I have worked every night this week until 10 o'clock so there was not a lot of fair time but I have done lunch there a few days and not once have I overdone it. The only real fair food that I want to eat is a Footlong fresh made corn dog and I might indulge in that when I go tomorrow night.
As of Monday if all goes to plan I will be able to run again and be in no pain.
