well this isn’t going to be easy

5 Jun

bad news at the chiro today — muscle in my shoulder isn’t doing what the doc wants it to and he casually mentioned that he thinks the muscle might be torn. which an MRI could confirm but $$$. i also have a neuroma in my right foot. which an MRI could confirm but $$$. he taped my shoulder and shrugged, told me to ice my foot and come back friday.

i’m not very happy. 

in other news it’s day 24 — i’ll let you know full AdvoCare 24 day challenge results tomorrow. don’t get too excited – they are going to be small. i have maybe 10 lbs to lose/convert to muscle so this is going to be a process. i know, i have a hard life. evidently i’m going to have to get a new job if i keep falling apart like this.

which i am in the process of doing – have i mentioned that i have 2 master’s degrees + 30 graduate hours in philosophy? well, it’s true. so i’m applying as an adjunct around town. there’s a few community colleges hiring. cross your fingers.

what else? oh, yea, workouts 🙂

tuesday was odd – had a guy show up in crocs so we did not go run. i did a random 30 sec on/10 sec off circuit a few rounds plus the 10 min amrap at the beginning. it was just odd. coupled with the whole is my class too easy problem . . . anyway – thursday. i *think* it’s supposed to rain/i have sharp nails in my foot so we’re going to run inside (and i might even skip that part)
