So, let’s start by describing what position I’m in.
After a speed workout on Tuesday, and teaching two classes, I woke up on Wednesday not really being able to move my neck around a whole lot. I tried turning it right, then left. Not a whole lot going on. Up and down? Same thing. And I knew I had like two meetings at work. Kinda felt like Miranda…
When she managed to pull her neck during marathon training, and Aiden had to come peel her off the floor. [Side note: still a little upset about the way things ended with Aiden the first time because the second time those two got together and got engaged was just painful to watch.]
But I digress. My neck was not at all feeling well, I’m not sure what I did to it, and with two meetings scheduled that day, I really couldn’t not go into work. Double negative. But you get it. So I popped three Aleve, and went on my way.
By the time I’d made it through my second meeting, the pain was starting to come up through my head, so I went home and alternated putting this heated rice bag thing on my neck with this neck massager thingie my mom very thoughtfully got me for Christmas a few years ago. It came in handy with my first marathon because I was having a lot of trouble with my pirformis, and I would just wedge the massager onto my big ass. This time, it’s actually on my neck where it’s supposed to be. Ahhh!
One year with the Coco.
About a year ago, I took a huge leap of faith, and adopted a little dog, sight unseen, because I was told her owner was going to take her to the pound.
The night we got her, she jumped up on the end of the bed, and I woke up periodically that night to make sure she was still there. She was thin, her hair was patchy, and I don’t know that she was getting the love that she needed. But she fit right in with our family, and really has brought us so much joy. I’ve convinced myself that Coco is immortal and she’s done little to correct me. I love that. Here’s to many, many more happy memories with the Coke-monster!
