Shingles

I'm looking at my 3 week anniversary of contracting shingles, which has been painful, uncomfortable, and ultimately a little disabling with respect to my training. The right side of my torso has been extremely sensitive to touch (and to any movement from my clothes, etc.) and my stomach and back muscles have started to contract as a result of me constantly clenching up. Sore back, painful stomach, painkiller haze, and too much wine to assist my sleep, and as a result I'm back out of training after being on pace for a 140 mile January... Done with this!

  2. Thanks Molly! Hopefully soon, in the meantime since I'm not running I've taken up the urg (sp?) trying to match the times of my daughter and her teammates at LG rowing ;)
