in early may, while visiting my (now) ex-boyfriend, i woke up with excrutiating shoulder pain. the pain was near my shoulder blade as well as along my collar bone. i took some motrin and within 4 or 5 days the pain had subsided. i figured i had slept on it wrong or something.
in the middle of june, i woke up with that same pain. this time i decided to see a doctor since i was in my own town and she told me all three of my shoulder muscles were severely inflamed. told me to take some motrin, gave me some pain medication for nighttime so i could sleep, and sent me on my way. i took the meds for a few days but felt better and started Power 90. by day 4, i was in pain again. so i took some time off but knew i wanted to complete Power 90 before i leave for indianapolis at the end of october. i am now having the same pain yet again. when i started Power 90 this time i had 93 days to complete the 90 day program (if i want to get it done before i go, which i do) and now i’m worried that’s not going to happen.
this was obviously just a personal goal for me, if i don’t complete it before i go it is not the end of the world. i guess i’m just worried about this pain because it keeps coming back and i’m also extremely bummed it decided to act up right at the beginning of H4H. i will have to listen to my body and adjust my goals accordingly, if necessary.
right now i just feel like such a failure already and week one isn’t even over yet.
