I hope to feel better by the end of the work day, the forecast is 75 degrees and sunny!! I want to do my long country mile loop.
I have strained my lower back. Before I ran yesterday, I tilled up three garden beds. I have raised garden beds, about one feet tall. So I had to haul my front end roto tiller into the bed, till, then haul it back out again. I am very strong, but did have to strain to do this. I didn’t really feel it until the evening.
Postscript: Well it was a beautiful day for running. Too bad I ran about twenty stops. Ow ow ow ow ow ow. Each step was a jarring pain.
I didn’t even work out at the gym, because most of my workout involves my core and that’s what is hurting!
I am not too bummed about this. It should heal up in a day or two, I will lay off all activity. This was actually the same way I ended up with my chronic hamstring injury from years ago, hauling that damn rototiller up a step.
It looks this will be a Saturday run at Mohican! Woohoo!!! I was all set to go run a quickie at Wheeling, a 20K road race, but Tom wants to come over and run the blue-red-green sections, and I think Josh may be coming north, so it looks like a Mo Run!
