So last week I told you how I was starting my new workout program. That went pretty well until Saturday. I had to take my kids to get fitted for their marching band uniforms (more on that later) so I woke up knowing my time was limited. I jumped on my treadmill for some sprints. I figured I'd hurry up and get sweaty for 20 or 30 minutes. A little bit of running is better than no running at all, right?
So I got about 10 minutes into my workout and suddenly my mid-back went into spasm. I couldn't hit the stop button fast enough. I stepped off the treadmill and spent a little time being horizontal on my yoga mat which had been rolled out nearby.
I was really bummed because prior to the sudden back pain I was feeling great! My legs felt strong and I had just thought I might bump up the speed on the next sprint interval! Ugh... it's fine, really. I'll just lie down instead. Whatever.
I have forced myself to take it easy this weekend. I think my back is feeling better. But I'm going to give it another couple of days before I run again.
But I'm gonna lift tomorrow...
