run fail this morning...gorgeous outside and snow is gonna start to melt so thought Id take Andi to the forest...the forest road leading to the fire tower road which I like to do (8miles) it was still covered in ice and my car just couldnt make the climb so we headed to lampblack..last time it snowed they had that fire road open but it was due to hunting season so the fire road had been driven on by trucks and such so there was the tire path to run in, well now that hunting season is over that road is not open to traffic so there were no tracks at all. 6 inches left of pure snowy slush...we made it out just over half mile and turned back...walked/hiked and it was a workout on the legs for sure! Now home...made a sammie and hope to get my shit together and get atleast 5-6 in town this afternoon.

dreadmill at incline at 12 for awhile then lower back started bothering me took it to 6 for awhile then just kept it at 3-4 for the remainder of the movie.

Very nervous and scardt right now....have to harden the fuck up for just 7 weeks and get thru this shoulder pain......got out of the tub and just pulling on my pants took me to my knees this evening. Maybe I made the mistake waiting till I couldnt wait any longer and have a ton of shit torn in there too...heck my other shoulder with the torn bicep and labrel tendon didnt feel this bad plus it had a bone spur and the ball and socket had a huge gap

Thursday - February 13

Well I've put off this stupid right shoulder pain for a couple years knowing what the outcome was gonna be but now can barely put a shirt on and off and cant sleep on the right side and even running it is starting to bother me so I broke down and went to the Ortho. All that was needed was an xray and it showed an enormous bone spur...he offered a shot to help with the pain but the only way to fix it is to shave it off and hope when he gets in there where I have let it go and grow for so long that I havent tore any shit around it. I will suffer it out for another 7 ish weeks as i cant go have it done now and even think I would be able to do Zion 100 the first weekend of April...but I did tell him I had a marathon 3 weeks after the 100 and 6 in 7 days 6 ish weeks later....but I always have the Buts....the 6 in 7 days have no time limit and its the entire New England states and I HAVE to do them...so even if he has to re attach anything I can speed walk those!! So I get back from Zion around midnight April 8th on the 9th i'll have the bloodwork done and then on the 10th at 6am go in for the surgery. I hate hate hate this cause shoulder surgery hurts so damn bad afterwards...I had my bicep and labrel reattached back in 05 as well as a bone spur and the ball and socket pulled back together and this is why i have been putting it off as long as I can...guess I always hope the shit will just go away. I didnt take the shot and I wouldnt take and pain meds now im questioning why i didnt go ahead and take the pain meds but i dont wanna start on them anyways...i have some strong ones in case my knee will need them for Zion so if i would start taking them now for my shoulder im afraid my body would get use to them and then if i got into too much pain at Zion and needed it it wouldnt be as effective?
