The only thing worse than having to do physio exercises is not being able to do them…
The current thinking is that the running, MTB and physio exercises have been a bit too much and I need a rest.
Looking back over my ever expanding ‘shoulder pain log’ in an attempt to understand the current trend, I noticed that the pain never went away. I thought I had a good period where I was able to climb with little pain. The best that I ever got was a 2-3 (on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being the worst) interspersed with periods of severe pain… so much for finding comfort from the past.
I don’t mind climbing with pain – I would rather climb and be in pain than not climb. It’s more the dull aching / throbbing feeling that I get afterwards just sitting on the couch that bothers me.
I miss climbing. I miss not being in pain.
I still don’t feel up for a challenge.
