No, I don’t mean metaphorically or emotionally. I’m solid as a rather squishy rock there. I mean as close to literally as you can get without being literally. My body is not the beacon of strength it once was. I have had a bad back for a while, including having a herniation, so I’m used to a little pain. And whenever I get a back flare up, I know what to expect.
But now all the sudden other parts of my body are deciding to get in on the action. Most notably, the TOP/outside of my right foot greeted me this morning with extreme pain. It hurts put much pressure on it. What’s weirdest is that I have no idea how this happened. It started to hurt last night gradually, culminating in this morning’s unpleasant greeting. Some ibuprofen helps quite a bit, but seriously?
Then, I had played my first round of disc golf on Tuesday (to prepare for this Saturday’s tournament on my home turf). It was only my second or third round since August. So right shoulder, trap, and upper back pain? Yeah, expected. But left shoulder and neck? That was a bonus.
Add to that a tweak of my back from last weekend which is still healing and a stubbed left toe from last night. Bear in mind, I have two days to prepare for a tournament in weather that MIGHT reach 40 if I’m lucky. This was supposed to be my first PDGA win. Now I’m not so sure. I think if I finish, I’ll be pretty happy.
