Fever, chills, sore throat, can't swallow.... the whole che-bang.
I haven't been sick in quite a while and it stinks. I am missing two practices - the first of our next Masters session -- that I have
been waiting more than a month for. Blech!
In the meantime I will need a kayaker for P2P July 25th. I have a few leads but nothing solid. I really want someone who has swum or kayaked before OR at least knows Portland Harbor currents. If you have a good idea please let me know!
My left shoulder has also been hurting a bit again. It really didn't hurt the whole season until about mid December, which I took as a sign that I was stronger. However I think the combined toll of increased intensity and yardage at the end of December along with a lot of report writing has caused a flare up. Interestingly with my efforts to tweak my stroke ala Karlyn Pipes-Neilsen, the pain has switched to the back part of my shoulder suggesting I am indeed engaging my back muscles more, but that they also are weak!
I should haul my sick heinie out of bed and do a few shoulder exercises I suppose.... wishing better health for everyone else out there!
