Thursday ruck

Missed getting this blog post in on time but here it is. pretty unremarkable except for my neck is still an issue.
I think the key thing is do not ruck then hone right after. Looking down after 1-2 hours  rucking with the weight on my shoulders was too much.
I did just an hour yesterday with 45 lbs and honed a bit too and have been paying for it all last night and today

Got a chiropractic adjustment this afternoon; that should show you how bad it was. My last adjustment was in 2009 I think :) The occiput was out, the same clunk I felt last sunday. Chiro put it back in but it was a big move.
It might take awhile to calm down muscularly but it's back in the right place. Square plumb and neutral sometimes takes more than a roller or lacrosse ball provide.
Like I always say, when you need a chiropractor or a surgeon, nothing else will do.
And today I did.
I'd forgotten how much force goes into old school chiropractic! It's freakin' violent. But when the bones won't move that's what it takes.
Now to relax everything :)

I'll tell you this though. I have not missed the pain and it ain't coming back for good!
