First, the MRI came up mostly clean which is partially good but partially annoying because now we are almost back to square one. There is one disc that is slightly protruding and possibly irritating the nerve... but he didn't seem really convinced that it was the source of all of my symptoms since it was so slight. He suggested I try 4-6 weeks of physical therapy to see if it helps correct it at all and alleviate the symptoms and we will take it from there. If we rule that out I'm not sure what the next step is. Maybe checking my shoulder?
So the other thing that has come up was brought up to me at the gym yesterday. Apparently my gym is rounding up a "team" to do the Tough Mudder course in October. The trainer that is rallying the troops asked me if I wanted to run it with them. I checked it out and it actually seems like a lot of fun. He swore to me that it wouldn't be like running 10 miles (which scares the shit out of me!) because of all of the obstacles. I actually really want to do it but I'm concerned that I won't be able to do a bunch of the obstacles (and it's ok if you skip some, they just want you to do your best) because of the weakness in my shoulder. On the other hand, I'd have 5 months to train for it. I'm completely torn!
Check out this video if you want to know more about it:
My favorite part is the girl that said "I'm really mad that you talked me into this." LOL that's hilarious and probably exactly what I'll be saying if I do it.
What do you guys think? Is 5 months enough time to train for this so I don't die? Those electric wires looks like they SUCK!
OK I'll stop rambling. That's what is happening in my life. Food tomorrow, I promise. My boss is out of town so we are going to close up a bit early so I'm going to run to the gym for bonus cardio which is pretty awesome :)
Have a great night everyone!
