Ship’s Log–February 11th, 2015


I had planned on doing two classes tonight. Ten minutes until the second class, while I was doing push ups, I felt an electric shock go down my arm and through my pinky, and then my finger started going all tingley. While it wasn’t the sort of thing that required immediately stopping class, I mentioned it to the head instructor, and he sent me over to my chiropractor next door immediately, since they were open during class but wouldn’t be in again until Friday.

Apparently, my neck, shoulders and upper back were a hot mess, which I guess makes sense given that I let people try to rip my arm out of the sickest several nights a week. The doctor worked on my for a good 30 minutes putting things back in order and doing that chiropractic voodoo to make all the accumulated aches and pains release. I missed my class, but I hope that I’ll be in better shape for tomorrow’s.
