So, after this 10km run on Wednesday I seem to have done some damage to myself, not the kind of damage that NORMAL runners do to themselves (like pull a muscle in their legs, thighs) no not Justine, Justine has damaged her shoulders and neck…. I can only assume that this is because when I run I look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
That being said I can barely move my shoulder/neck situation is so utterly screwed up – I have no idea what to do and I haven’t been running because it is just TOO sore!
I have however come to the conclusion that the reason I have such a sore shoulder/neck situation however is due to the worlds worse stitch I had for 30mins while running through the streets of JHB on Wed – For a newby runner these things are all well, new to me you see, I knew about stitches but the last one I probably got was back in 1993. I did not know however, how terribly painful they could be, and this is why I ran bent up like the Hunchback of Notre Dame for 30mins through Hillbrow and PROBABLY damaged myself (Hopefully not seriously and it’ll correct itself)
Runners out there, help a girl out? I dunno what to do other than pump myself full of muscle relaxers or just embrace the pain?
