In the middle of the night Sunday into Monday, we got a bit of snow. It wasn't much but given the 10 day forecast, we knew this was going to be the last chance to get out in the snow.
The Mr was quite happy to get to it.
Technically, there wasn't enough of a base for snowshoeing as demonstrated by the grass peeking through but when the winter is as crappy as this one has been for snow lovers, you do what you have to.
So off we went.
If you're reading this part, it means the Mr didn't mind my sharing that he took a bit of a tumble. Twenty seconds after I told him to watch it in this one area that is notorious for ruts, I saw him lose his balance. Before I could get to him, he went down hard on his right hip and right shoulder. You know, the shoulder he's been rehabbing for like 6 months? We wrapped it up after another lap and left after a good burn....
He burned over 1100 calories. Thankfully nothing was broken on him but the shoulder was in bad shape. Within a few hours he was at the chiro's office getting spider monkey'd (adjusted) and lasered. The doc told him to baby it for the next 48 hours so no strength training this week and he goes back Friday to get lasered again and reevaluated. In between visits, he'll be icing and using the ultra sound on it to speed the healing. I felt bad because just the night before, he had finally worked back up to 40 pound weights. I swear something always happens when he gets to that point.
Then he wanted to go see The Force Awakens one more time in the theater. Since he asked me for the 40th time to go, I agreed. About an hour into the film and five minutes into Han Solo's appearance, the power went out. I had to go to the bathroom and feeling my way in the dark was interesting. I came back through and we said we'd give it 10 more minutes. They came in and said they'd give rainchecks for free movies and about five minutes later the lights came back on so we knew the movie wasn't far behind. Ten minutes later we were back in business and I saw the whole thing. I'm not going to get into what I didn't like because I don't need the SW army hate. I will say I really liked the two new leads.
Dinner was spaghetti squash and chicken. Then the Mr got to icing the shoulder and we caught up on the DVR. It will be interesting to see if we can walk today. We did a good stretch session after playing in the snow but we could feel the lower back, hips and IT bands really tightening up as the night progressed.
Have you gotten a chance to play in the snow this season?
