Well, the pain of my injury has subsided to about 50% of what it was on Wednesday. I also only took two aspirin and an Ibuprofen yesterday. But I did sleep a good deal.
I got very little work done this week. I partially revised a short story, wrote a poem (When Fresh We Are) started a song, made some background notes on my novel, redesigned my business cards, did some research, read, and listened to part of two lectures (one on mathematics, one on mythology). I also made a couple of posts to my new writing blog Wyrdwend. That was it, otherwise, I was just recuperating.
I did get up this morning at about 6:30 and started my rehabilitation. I fed Sam and the cats (Alex was waiting on the west deck when I got up), went outside and did some light stretching, then took Sam for a half-mile walk (round trip – walking too far still hurts), then returned home and had some breakfast.
Then I got the wife up, cleaned my office, replaced all of the air filters in the house, and had a cup of coffee and some fresh strawberries from the farm. If I can endure it and the pain is not too bad then I plan to take no pain killers today, maybe only one aspirin before bed tonight.
The rest of the day I plan to recuperate, rehab my back and shoulder, do my chores, eat well, read, and rest.
I plan to return to my Operational Workbooks and my regular work and training schedules on Monday.
Unless the injury prevents me from my regular training exercises at which point I’ll do a light workout with some stretching.
Have a good weekend folks.
