oh, the universe

So yesterday, I wondered aloud what I would do if I had no injuries to complain about.  This is why you shouldn't taunt the universe.


Today, Friday, was to be a rest day.  I was pretty tight in the legs when I woke up this morning after my PT beating yesterday, so I decided to go to the gym to stretch, do a little bit of core and my PT exercises, and then sit in the hot tub and stretch some more.  I was doing the bicycle sit-ups when all of a sudden, my upper back locked.  Between my shoulder blades.  I laid back down, then stood up and gently tried to stretch out a bit, and nothing.  It's a solid mass of tightness and pain.  When I breathe deeply, my lungs expanding is pressing into the place that hurts.  I tried some gentle stretching in all directions, and it just brought more pain.


So I made my way to my car, and drove home, and then sat in the driveway for 20 minutes letting the seat warmers roast my back.  When I stopped crying, I came inside, took 4 advil, and got into a hot shower, where I stood under the water until the hot ran out.  And now I'm back in bed, laying on top of the electric blanket because I can't find my heating pad, cursing the day I decided to get off my fat ass again.


I talked to my PT, and they are able to squeeze me in at the end of the day, but I don't know if this is a "stay off it for a couple of days" or "your spring racing season is totally fucked" kind of thing.  Fingers crossed for the first.

  1. Maybe this is because of the whole horoscope hoopla? I don't know how it would be connected, but I really can't think of another reason.
