My Week 2
I started out with the worst lower back pain I have had in quite some time. This was after my 6 mile run last weekend.
It sucked. Like. SUCKED. I started doing these back stretches every hour where I get on my belly and arch my back while lifting my head to the sky.
Yes. It looked exactly like you are imagining.
I did this in my office. At the pool. On the street. Everywhere.
Sunday I rode the bike. Monday rest. Tuesday 3 miles. Wednesday rest (should have been 3 miles) Thursday rest (should have been 3 miles) I wanted to give my back 2 solid days of rest. Friday I rode the stationary bike for 30 minutes and prayed that my rest days would not come back to bite me today.
After my 7 mile run this morning I must say, I think I chose wisely. My back held up the entire run and I felt great all 7 miles. Here was the run…
