I've had to give in temporarily to the injury couch. An old injury has flared up bigtime (torn shoulder tendon) and my lovely NHS physio said (despite my pleading puppy dog eyes) that it would be best not to do anything that jolts the shoulder (and that includes running, despite my following Laura's instructions to hold shoulders down and back). I'm seeing her again in a week. Ice, ibuprofen and painkillers now on the menu. (You mean I have to use the ice on my shoulder, not in a glass? There's a novelty).
Meanwhile, lovely people, if anyone has a magic wand for tendon repair please can I borrow it?! Ideas on a postcard.. or just click below as usual. Heeeeeelp!
