Fastest Pace Yet

My lower back is all sortsa out-of-whack.  I have to see my Chiro two times a month.   I missed my regular appointment two weeks ago.   Bad news.   Very Very Bad News.  Now I am behind and paying for it.  And speaking of paying for it, WHY do Chiro’s have to be so damn expensive?!   I calculated what they make an hour based off my monthly rate and the 5 minutes they spend with me.  All I can say is, they aren’t hurting for money.  =/

Anyway, back to my point.

Sitting down sucks.  Hello compressed spine. 

Bending over sucks.  Squat baby, squat.

Laying down sucks.  Sleeping on an ice pack helps, but rolling over?   That’s a whole other story.

Standing feels ok.  But only after about 2 minutes of being hunched over and slowly but surely straightening out. 

Running.  Ya, I can hear your scolding comments now.  But, I went running.  I told you, standing feels just fine once I am up!

And ya know what is even more weird?   I had one of my best averages.   What the What?

 

I averaged an 8:52 mile pace for 4.5 miles. 

My normal happy place is 9:30.

This makes no sense to me.  None.  

I guess the fresh fall air in my lungs combined with the warm sun and open trail just made my body happy.

Did I do more harm to my back?  I don’t think so.  Felt fine the rest of the day as long as I was up and moving.   The second I sat down though, forget about it.   Pain.  Just sharp throbbing pain.  Nothing new.

Back to chiro tomorrow.  I’ve got a full class load to teach this week.  Ain’t NOBODY got time for a broken back.

Until then I’ll stick to this suggestion – but I’ll take Vodka, thanks.

Cheers.

  1. back not hurting, but hubby’s is! He has been going three days per week… he is a mess! so I read this to him and he can relate! he did about 2 minutes of yoga with me this morning and said it felt better, now sitting here watching the Broncos…its hurting him again! I think I should become his chiro, if they make that kinda money!!!
