Every day I’m shufflin’ and more proof that I’ve lost my damn mind

Every day I’m shufflin’ …which is why I fall on my ass and go BOOM!

Not BOOM! like YEAH! AWESOME! but BOOM! as in HOLY F* THAT HURTS!!!

Just to be clear.

Aikido didn’t go so well last night. Again. Peeps – this is a thing that actually might kill me.  So far, in 6 weeks, I’ve managed to jam up both shoulders, jam my wrist, and get my big toe bent back painfully.  Last night, I decided to try and move a little faster in some of the roll practice – apparently forgetting everything I ever learned about it in the process. Peeps, I swear – the unpleasant crunching sound that came from my shoulder sounded like it called me dumbass! I swear it did!

And that was my good shoulder. Which isn’t so good right now. OUCH!!  This one’s gonna take a few days or 10 to get back to good.  *sigh*

And OH MY GOD! DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO GET A SPORTS BRA OFF WHEN YOU CAN’T REALLY MOVE ONE ARM A WHOLE LOT?

It’s hard. It involves grimacing. But you power through because the only thought worse than the pain is the thought that you’re about to have to call your husband to come help you get your sports bra off. No man should have to witness such a process.  *sigh*

HOWEVER – this whole fact that I can’t move my left arm so great didn’t stop me from registering for Run the Bluegrass this morning.  Early registration opened today and the race is capped on size limit. I wanted in and BAM! Registration done. So what if I can’t move my arm, I can run 13.1 miles – right?  Okay, the race is next Spring and I’m pretty sure the shoulder will be okay by then, but still – nothing like a humiliating painful injury to make you go register for an endurance race. What? Sure, why not.

In fact, I’m pretty sure I might be able to knock out some mileage later today – if I can figure out how to get a sports bra on without using my arms…
