We may just have a solution to the shoulder pain problem.
As previously mentioned, I picked up a new and far lighter cane yesterday. I used it for the rest of the day, and the difference was astounding.
I was going to take some painkillers before going to bed, but decided not to. I hit the sack around 11 and fell asleep quickly.
I woke up a few times, but not in any real discomfort. I woke up again around 6:30am and because I had the car share car until 9, I thought I should get up and use it. But I could have easily gone back to bed for a couple more hours of restful sleep.
The shoulder was much improved.
So... I got up, grabbed my stuff and ran out the door to enjoy the last few hours of vehicular freedom.
First stop was Continental Coffee for a double americano misto.
Then off to Kits Beach for a stroll before the tourists and lululemon crowd took over. It was incredibly peaceful:

Which I did.
So, for 24 hours of having a car on demand including gas, insurance and taxes, the total cost was $56. That included 242km of driving! And, because I gassed up during the 24 hours (their gas card), I was rewarded with 20 free minutes off my next rental.
I love Car2Go!
It's now midday Sunday. I'm restless but don't feel like working. I think I'll go get some sushi. And make some Blerk™.
Oh, and the shoulder? Still feels pretty good, despite the typing.
I managed to get some work done. And I walked to the Japanese grocery store. And I walked to the regular grocery store.
After that, I kicked my feet up. The shoulder started to flare, so I popped a Naproxen.
Exercise: Beach walk (30 mins), Grocery shopping (3km), 30 flights of stairs, physio.
