The blog has been dormant lately... which is related to my lack of activity this last month. I took a break from running for about a month as i have been struggling with some back pain issues. After 3 out of 4 weeks of air travel at the end of March, different beds and crammed airplanes.. my back got mad at me... and reminded me how precious having a healthy back is.
I have been doing prednisone, lots of chiro visits, as many massages as my wallet can afford without my husband cutting up my credit card in front of me and stretching. I reminded myself over and over that patience is a virtue and knew i had to take it easy. Instead of my usual routine where it was bad for a week and then slowly got better.. this one lingered on.. I had moments of big concern if i would ever feel back to normal..
would i be able to sit on the toilet without winching and having a tear
or two from the pain the angle created.... for about a week, i honestly
Thankfully, it is getting better.. slowly.... and i would say i am about 90% back to normal. I have a busy race schedule.. esp in june with two tri-cations coming up so i am taking it easy. Been swimming a lot and biking more than i normally do, so there are positives to the obvious negative. One day at a time.. grateful that my back is recovering and I am able to do what I can do. Here's to 2014 Race Season!
