I know, where is leg 22? Trust me, I will explain. Just not now. I am a bit tired. This short run was hurt. With my back acting up just over a month ago, and still causing some issues, and the rear tire developing an air bubble just under the tread, I have not been riding consistently. But than, like me and blogging, consistency is a rare thing.
Now, about my back: seems that there has been a pinch slowly developing to which I was not quite paying attention. I was wondering why the back of my upper arm would get what felt like a tearing sensation. Now, of course, I know. It came to a head after I went fishing with my girlfriend down in Rochester, Minnesota.
Her parents live on a lake that use to be an old sandstone quarry. We use their boat and a trolling motor to get around. Well, I was using my right hand to steer the motor. It meant reaching behind me and twisting my back and neck. On top of that, there was the casting. The colluded in causing serious discomfort the next day. So much so that my right index finger became numb.
I have been going to the chiropractor, and have seen major improvement. The numbness no longer hinders my ability to handle pens or do typing. A few more sessions and I hope to have the numbness gone.
Now, though, my lower back is pissed at me. I do not blame it. I should have waiting a few more minutes before sitting down to create this post. But it is a muscle that is bitching me out, not my spine. It will, of course, get over it soon enough. I figure a good shower should do the trick. So, hopefully, I will let you know about Leg 22 later today.
