|This isn't me, but is exactly where I got the shot.|
I also read recently on LoneSwimmer's site about "Magic Cups" Looks like a great way to be prepared to administer ice. Normally I just put it in a baggie and leave it on my shoulder, but then it just falls off. Then I hold it there and freeze my hand. This is a cool way to administer it. I'll have to go find some cups like that and get them in the freezer.
He said I should take ibuprofen while I'm training to keep the swelling under control, which I definitely plan to do. It might be in my head, but I feel it getting better already. He said I'm OK to swim over the next few days, but to take it easy and let the swelling subside before really putting more strain on it. So tonight's swim is only a mile and I'll take it easy.
Tomorrow I swim with Goody in GSL and I'll just take a really easy pace. I'm very happy that I now have a diagnosis, an immediate treatment to reverse the inflammation and a set of precautionary practices to reduce the chance of it happening again.
