Pain in the neck..

I got a crick in my neck last week that would not go away. It hurts to look either right or left. It sucked at work because I'm constantly moving. I looked like Frankenstein having to turn my whole body just to look around.

I have an appointment next week with a local guy that does Chinese massages. I have never had one before, but my friends rave about this guy. They say he is a miracle worker. For $40 an hour he better be good!!!
Even though my neck didn't hurt while I was running, it did hurt to look to my left and right. Trying to look for on coming traffic became a challenge. So I decided to take a few days off to help it heal up. 4 days to be exact. I can't remember the last time I took 4 days off from running. My neck feels a lot better today, but it's still a bit achy. I ended running 5 miles today. I also bought 2 new pillows. I think my old ones where part of my problem.


I got my HeadSweats hat that I won from the Detroit Runner's Giveaway. I can't wait to wear it on a cold day!!
 Here it is in Black

Reversible in blue

I've worn a winter hat just a handful of times this winter. And only during morning runs. It just hasn't been cold enough to wear one. Dec. 2nd tomorrow and it's going to be in the 50's.... unreal. I have my winter beard growing too. I'm about to shave it soon if it stays warm. It's getting itchy!

I plan on not running tomorrow. I have somethings to do during my lunch time so I wont have the time. I'm planning a long run on Saturday. Hopefully 10+ if all goes well. It will be a early morning run so it should be cold enough to wear my new hat!

Hope you guys have had a great week. Weekend is almost here!

That creak can be a worrying sign. At least you've gone to the health professionals immediately, which is what anyone of us should do, should we be faced by the same problem. Better hand that situation out to the professionals for them to mend with their expertise and be resolved by the necessary therapies. Hope everything's better now!
