In the past week
my shoulders and shoulderblades feel extremely tired and stiff after I run. It’s like my arms are too heavy. Is that a normal thing? It gets better pretty fast after I sit down for a bit, but it’s pretty uncomfortable for a bit and makes me feel more tired than I am.
Good strategy. Do you feel that you’re getting enough? YOu could get a light box/bright light therapy lamp too if you’re worried you’re still not getting enough. It’s not the same, but it will top you up.
