Massage and a couple of days rest did the trick with the shoulder. Total 1600m in the pool this morning, including a huge (for me) 150m non-stop. I could only swim 25m 6 weeks ago. I'm made up with the progress. Shows what a little coaching can do. Wish I'd done this years ago.
Well I've joined the injury club unfortunately. Had to skip swimming tonight, feels like a trapped nerve or muscle spasm around my shoulder blade or something. Might have been a hard run I did last night. Luckily got a sports massage first thing tomorrow so that should sort it out.
Swimming progressing well. With and without fins. Got a great coach who doesn't overload me with things to work on. "One thing at a time, get that right and we'll move on and build on it"
Looking forward to it now in June, rather than being terrified.
