Well, I played hockey for the first time in almost 3 weeks last night. I played pretty good as I notched an assist and really skated very well as a forward.
I took a nice fall in front of the net when I got nudged by an opposing defenseman and now the back of my neck is as sore and stiff as hell. I knew when I took that fall that I was going to be hurting. My neck cracked and just took the wind right out of me.
Got home last night and popped a 800mg Ibrprofin and went to bed. This morning, it hasn’t improved much. With another game tonight that I don’t intend to miss, I know I am going to be pretty sore. I figure it is going to be worth playing though since it has been a while since I strapped on my goal pads.
I don’t think I stretched enough, which is why I am hurting today. Gotta make a note to stretch better today and from here on out.
