Shoulders Suck

I feel so far removed from this morning’s training session, because the rest of my day was a series of appointments and a lot of driving around. It is after 5PM and only now am I actually able to “sit” and relax and process parts of my day. Today’s training wasn’t bad, yet I wasn’t truly myself. My left shoulder has been bothering me, and I’m not thrilled about it. Actually, there’s also been some discomfort around the left elbow, although that hasn’t been as noticeable as the shoulder. While the shoulder didn’t seem to impact training much this morning, it doesn’t feel right and there is enough of that not quite right feeling to make some movements and actions uncomfortable, which makes for a frustrated girl.

The shoulder made for an uncomfortable sleep last night, and I wholly expect a repeat scenario tonight. So frustrating. My shoulders had been feeling good for so long…
