My main hobby is surfing, I go on a 2 month trip to Indonesia each U.K. winter. Not being a young guy (I’m 55) I need to work hard for the rest of the year in order to be in any sort of shape for my trips. I kayak most days, around 4 miles up and down the canal I live on. Takes an hour or so, my boat is a fat heavy fishing type.
All was well until 2 weeks ago when I started to feel pain in my right shoulder. It’s not searing pain, more a dull ache. It doesn’t hurt when I paddle or otherwise use the shoulder, Tends to ache more when I’m resting. As a precaution I haven’t paddled for 2 weeks now but it hasn’t improved or worsened in that time.
I’m off to Indo in 4 weeks, starting to get a bit concerned about this. I’m unsure whether to continue resting, start kayaking again, or what to do really.
Does anyone know what this injury might be, what’s best to do about it?
