This morning started great. Yesterdays run let me know I was back and ready to get more serious.
I planned on the Strider 7-mile run this evening, so I decided to complete my weight training first. The mid-body weight training went well until the last rep, of the last set. I twisted or did something different that threw my back OUT. I went to the floor and not much else has improved since then. I've iced my lower back, sat in cold water, stretched, and taken enough ibuprofren to kill a small dog. Nothing is working. I'm having trouble walking much less entertaining any thoughts of training. I'm going to take some "left-over" muscle relaxers, retire early, and wish for the best.
It's weird how fast things have changed. Earlier, I was thinking of how to compose my exciting post where I was going to announce my lack of injury.
The only good news today: I stayed on course with the diet. Keith helped me set up an "Under 3000 Calorie" counter. Thanks a bunch for the script Keith! Its located at the bottom of the sidebar. Check it out and tell what you think.
