A pain in the back

After all my work not to get injured post half marathon… you guessed it… my aching back.

I’m not sure what the problem is, but I was in so much pain last night, it was hard to sleep.  Strangely, while I run the pain goes away and then by the next day it seems to get worse.

So, I am taking more time off to recuperate, per my Lovely Wife’s advice and see if I can’t nip it in the bud.  Yesterday was the first “normal” weekday in forever that I didn’t run or walk.  I’m not to happy about it, but I really don’t want to make things worse.

On the bright side, my weight is lower then it has been in 10 months.  ACV is the only thing I can attribute it to.  In fact I eat poorly last weekend, so by Monday I weighed 189 lbs.  Today I weighed below 185.

Now if I can just stop getting hurt after my races, I’ll be fine!!!

  1. I am so bummed and sorry to hear this. Welcome to the injured crowd. It has been almost 2 weeks without running here and I can’t quite see the end of the tunnel. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!

  2. Hope it gets better very soon! Have you tried some maintenance stretches and exercises for your back? I’m sure you have, but just feeling concerned so thought I’d ask. My Pauly has a bad back and he has a regular (what he calls) ‘tune up’ from the Osteo to keep everything ok. On the most part it works really well.
