Pardon this blog as it’s all over the place. This past weekend started with a bang and ended in pain.
Saturday morning I woke up bright and early to attend and help set up for the Team in Training Fall 2013 Kick Off. When I joined TNT for the last spring season I didn’t attend that Kick Off so this was my first time. Even having been a participant for almost half a year I couldn’t help but be inspired by the stories, the excitement and the opportunity to save a life.
After the long and busy week I had all I wanted was to relax and enjoy some frozen yogurt in the hot weather. I started my no sweets/treats during the weekdays last week and to say it was tough is an understatement. I swear everywhere I turned there was some delicious treat that was starring at me. I refrained and it made my Saturday afternoon treat even sweeter. I plan on continuing to do this. Sweets will only be eaten on the weekends and special occasions.
Sunday I started the day with some coffee in bed and then went on a planned 8 mile run. 8 miles didn’t happen because it was so darn hot outside. I ran out of water 5 miles in and it made the last two pretty painful. I got home stretched like it was my job and then decided it was time to take a shower.
The shower is where the pain came in. Every year or two I have lower back pain. It usually pops up from some simple action and then proceeds to bother me for a week. Well shaving my legs seemed to be the trigger this time. Last time it was putting a toilet seat cover down.
So as I type this I’m sitting on the couch, working from home because I tried to go the office and my desk chair was killing me. Fun times are going to be had this week I’m sure.
