Unbelievable! Where did April go?! Crazy! 😀
So I officially joined the Metro Women’s Soccer League as a competitive soccer player over 30 😀 And I am also now a member of a team. Whoohoo! My super cool neighbour is a member of that team and she asked me if I wanted to join too. Of course I said “yes” right away. I had my first competitive game on Thursday last week. So so cool! I have so much to learn but the experience is amazing.
So today was supposed to be my second game with the team, however, I couldn’t play. The other day I took the kids to the park and I pushed them on the swings… nothing extraordinary really…. We came back home and my back, shoulder and whole arm were in pain. I couldn’t lift my arm it was so painful. I could feel that there was a knot on my upper back and I knew that probably I pulled something when we were in the park. I didn’t have any other explanation. I don’t have to describe the disappointment I felt. I knew I wouldn’t be able to play 😦 Six Tylenols later… I am still in pain and don’t know what else to do. I spoke to a friend of mine who is a registered massage therapist and her opinion was to book a massage but to also kind of wait it out. Keep taking the Tylenol, etc. 😦
So I can run 15k, do bootcamps, play a whole 90-min soccer game and other than the usual soreness… nothing. I push my kids on the swings and bam! I’m out of commission for a third day now 😦 How does that happen?!
To top if off, I can’t even knit! The yarn and needles feel like they are 20 lbs heavy on my right arm. 😦 It hurts to crochet too. 😦
Ok I’m done complaining 😀 On the bright side, I have been going to bed on time because I can’t knit until 2 am and it feel like i am catching up on my sleep which makes a huge difference these days. 🙂
