Not happy

Janathon day 13

Thirteen might be unlucky for some. It certainly was unlucky for my planned run tonight. I ended up getting home late, having been to see the medical profession after work. That didn’t make me feel much better. I’ve had a stiff neck & unhappy shoulder for about a month now. Initially I thought I’d slept funny, but when it didn’t go away, I figured that t probably wasn’t as simple as that. Seems that while the problem is more in my shoulder and upper arm, the origin is in my neck. “Wear and Tear” was the verdict. Lovely. That sounds to me like old age kicking in. Humph. Not happy (1)

I did debate still going out for a urn, but it was very dark, the temperature had dropped significantly in the afternoon and it was raining with a hint of sleet, so I’m, afraid the cold and the dark put me off heading out for a run. That and the head cold that’s been on the brew all day. At the moment it’s a headache and sore throat, but it has that threatening aspect. Sounds like another cold on the way. Humph. Not happy (2).

Despite of that double humph, I didn’t just throw in the towel. Instead of curling up on the sofa with a box of chocolates and crap TV, which I was highly tempted by, I did at least do something. A good 30 minutes on the Wii was followed by the challenge exercise for the day. 115 squats, 19 pressups and 56 situps mean that I don’t feel like I’ve shirked the exercise and can report another day of Janathon done. Doesn’t mean I’m happy though. 😦
