So Lindsey has whiplash….and I appear to have pinched a nerve in my neck. I haven’t slept and can barely breath because it causes me too much pain. My dad thinks it is due to being outside in the cold during my race on Sunday. I tend to tense up when I am cold and he thinks I just over did it and now things have seized up. I managed to work through it yesterday, with tears in my eyes, but I couldn’t do it again with the added complication of no sleep.
Needless to say, I’m sick of not being able to move, breathe, sleep, run, etc. This thing needs to loosen up so that I can run in Fargo on the weekend. I am hoping that this thing finally passes in the next 24 hours.
On the plus side, this weird “injury” of sorts is giving me permission to just (painfully) do nothing–which is one small benefit of this whole not being able to move, breathe, sleep, run thing. Right now I am watching the Little Mermaid, with a heating bad on my shoulder/neck, sipping tea and typing this with one hand on my iPhone (so my apologies for grammatical errors). I am also conducting a little bit of research for some of the trips I have planned over the next several months (both work and pleasure). I have found three races to do (in Ottawa, ON; St.Paul, MN and Honolulu, HI), some neat tours in Hawaii-one for photography and one fo surfing the North Shore.
Anyway, I am going to try and make myself something to eat and maybe get some sleep after that, should my neck allow for it. Take care and happy Tuesday everyone!
