Volunteered at the Georgian Triangle Humane Society fundraising event in Collingwood as part of the Caron Shepley Paws for Cause team, alongside Martin Rydlo, Sean Bechtel and Barrie Shepley. There were runners and walkers, with and without dogs, brilliant sunshine, a beer garden and more than $155,000 raised for the Humane Society.

Now that my shoulder is 80-90% better, it was time for a test. Although I don't think of myself as doing a lot of upper body exercise, shoulders are rather important for almost everything I do - paddling, biking, strength training, running, yoga and the rowing machine. A few evenings ago, I wore a sling because it hurt too much if my arm was hanging down while I sat or walked. So I didn't want to push it today and I started back at the easiest level - a brisk hike around Palgrave West with AdventureDog. Glad I went; the forest is gorgeous right now and my shoulder was cooperative.

My left shoulder has been achy over the past week for some reason - maybe because I sleep on that side? Or because I landed on my left side in the bike fall early last week, even though it didn't seem like my arm was involved? Or three very bumpy bike rides in a week? Whatever it is, it flared up massively right before dinner last night and I could barely find a comfortable position to sit. I wouldn't be able to ride a bike today. I can barely even dress myself. I think it's a little better than it was 12 hours ago because it's possible to find positions where it doesn't hurt.

It reminds me of the severe shoulder pain I had right before UTMB 2014 when I thought I would have to drop out of the race. That was probably caused by heaving a heavy duffel bag on and off my shoulder multiple times during our travels. I've done nothing like that lately.
