Yesterday I did some shoulder massage by applying pressure using a tennis ball.
I think however, I may have done more damage than good as my shoulder blade is really painful and now it hurts when I lift my arm above shoulder level, or try to pick things up.
It’s likely to be the result of a combination of factors really. I think I may have also aggravated my shoulder on Sunday at work.. It’s my right shoulder, which is difficult not to use.
My concern is that if I Immobilise my arm It may seize up .
Finding the right balance between rest and exercise is quite difficult.
I’m trying to stay positive about this.
My swim is in a few weeks. Obviously I’m feeling a bit anxious about being fit to do it.
Worrying won’t help. My best chance of doing the swim now is if I rest.
At the moment my body is saying no. Mentally I need to believe that i can still do it, that it’s still possible.
Hopefully I will recover in time.
Must stretch and eat well.
