Achy Breaky Back

I did something really awful to my back. Don't know what and don't know when... only that on Tuesday morning I realized, "Hmmmm, it feels a little tight back there." Two hours later I was walking like Quasimodo and I haven't been the same since. I have some kind of muscle spasm going on in my lower back. You should watch me try to put on a pair of socks. I am quite the bundle of misery.

This also means I have not run in 5 days. Unless I wake up tomorrow with a miraculous recovery, I doubt I'll be running anytime soon. {I} {AM} {MAD}!!!! I have been training for 5 months for this dad-blame half marathon. I have felt great until now. The half marathon is in 16 days and I will probably be out of shape again by the time it rolls around.

To be honest, that's the least of my problems right now. Have you noticed how many tasks around the house require you to bend over? Laundry. Dishes. Tying the laces of your 4-year-old's shoes. Spitting toothpaste into the sink. My lower back screeches in agony whenever I attempt the slightest curvature of the spine. Eee gads.

Of course, I'm not as bad off as Heather. She broke her elbow {ROLLERSKATING}.

Enough said.

Ha. At least I know what caused my injury, Miss Lady!

I hope you feel better TOMORROW and get back to training! Soon you can run all the way to GA, right?

ughhh... back problems. Thankfully I haven't encountered them but I know people who have. I hope the recovery is quick and you get feeling better.
