Jog Bra Angst, #2

This is not a picture of me. We can pretend this is pony tail lady, if you'd like.

I've been running quite a bit this week. Amazing, but true. My legs were sore for a few days, since getting back into the regular routine always surprises them. I never warn them ahead of time, I just do it.

The first day of surprise running, they're fine. The second day, they start grumbling. The third day, they rebel against walking up stairs. After that, they calm down, since they know I usually don't go more than four days in a row.

So that's my legs, and I'm used to their antics. I was surprised, however, when my left shoulder started acting up. I don't really use my shoulder much when I run, but it was so sore a few nights this week that I couldn't even sleep on my left side. I almost took some Advil one night. I didn't, but I thought about it.

It's not like I've been lifting weights or going to bootcamp, or anything. I've just been going on my regular 3 mile loop in the neighborhood, with my arms relaxed at my side. I don't recall any loud waving or arm thrashing. No dog yanks, either.

Huh. Weird.

Then one morning I figured it out. I've been straining my shoulder joints when I take off my jog bra after the run. The jog bra that's still a bit too small. The one that's buried at the bottom of my drawer, and only used when I'm low on laundry.

You know how you cross your arms, grab the sides of the bra, lift and uncross at the top with the bra over your head? Well, if you don't know, now you do.

I'm just assuming everyone does it that way. I haven't actually done a survey. But anyway, when your bra's too tight and sweaty, you can strain your shoulder joints by doing this, apparently.

Ouch.

Hi Fawn, welcome to Chubby Mommy Running Club! I see you have a blog about running too...although since you throw out phrases like "Dirty Half," which is marathon talk, I'm thinking you must be a bit more accomplished than me. I will read your blog for running inspiration! So glad you're here.

I bought an Iphone from someone and when i press the circular button at the bottom, even when i have my simcard in, it asks me to connect my iphone to iTunes. I dont have internet on my phone plan and i want to keep my phone plan the same price. How can i unlock the Iphone without activating it or connecting it to iTunes?
