My shoulder has been feeling pretty good lately. I was thinking that it was time to start getting back to the gym, even if I was only doing my physical therapy exercises there. I figured I’d get some motivation, and I could start at least doing warm-ups and doing a few exercises at a very light weight to see how my shoulder would handle it.
We’ve also been having some weird weather lately. It got up into the 60s (F) last week. In January! People were out in shorts and t-shirts! I figured I would take advantage of the nice weather and take Bentley out for a run. The weather was lovely, I was feeling good, Bentley was thrilled to be going for a run. Perfect, right?
I’m not sure what happened. One second, we’re running along smoothly. The next… all I remember is hearing Bentley yelp, me tripping over him and landing HARD with most of my weight right on the tip of my elbow.
It hurt. A lot. And the way I landed, jarred my whole arm up into my shoulder. Luckily(?) I landed on my “good” arm, so I didn’t damage the shoulder I had surgery on. Of course, now I have *two* bad shoulders.
Also, in the TMI and gore category, even a week later, it’s still bleeding sometimes. It’s right on the point of my elbow, so if I bend my arm all the way the would breaks open, and it’s right on that part of the elbow I would normally rest on an armrest, so it keeps getting bumped against those and the edge of my desk at work.
So it’s a bit of a set-back. Been having to take some Aleve to dull the pain enough to sleep a couple times. But I’m hoping it’s just a really bad bump and that it’ll be back to normal soon!
