Running shoulders

Now… I don’t run. I sprint, but I don’t “run”. In addition to the boringness involved in running… I’m not much of an endurance type of person. I excell at explosiveness, perhaps because that’s the way I train… but I don’t feel the need to be a runner.

That’s not really my point tho. Besides that the impact of running tends to bother my knees if done for too long (hence the real reason why I don’t “run”), I’m finding that when doing my intervals, come the third one, my shoulders are hurting from the jostling. This, in my opinion, is not good.

This makes it a bit more difficult to actually get in the sprints (at least the 7mph medium run I have been doing on the treadmill for my “sprints”) for my workout. I don’t mind it on any other level. I’m very happy that 7mph isn’t terribly taxing and I’ll be upping it for my cardio days (tuesday & thursday), as I thought I would be more deconditioned than that. But… this is terribly painful to do more than 2 sprints. And 2 is simply not enough.

sigh

If it’s not one thing, it’s another.

I’m not letting this stop me, hopefully some asprin or advil will help and make it no longer an issue, but if not I’ll see what the doc says when I go next.

I’m just finding it frustrating.

On the bright side (or perhaps not, depends, I suppose)… I’m not getting any DOMS from workouts. Since usually (in the past) I’ve only ever had the problem for the first couple workouts, this I’m taking as a good thing. It means I’ve gotten around to a decent enough schedule that I’m constantly “starting out” and feeling it.

Where the hell is that advil, anyway?
