My Relief for Back Pain
So, I mentioned on Friday, that my back was killing me. I had hurt it during my days as a gymnast, and since then I have tweaked it every so often. Well I injured it a couple of weeks ago at the lake water skiing. Well on Thursday, I did it again at Gymboree (boy it's a tough place). I couldn't arch my back at all. Well, I had planned to go for another long run on Saturday and didn't want to miss out on it, since I rarely get to, so I decided to go, but take it slow. Adam and Hope ended up going with me, so it made it easy for me to take it easy. Well 8 miles later, my back felt 50% better. I guess it was the heat and the blood running through my body to loosen everything up that helped my back. Today, it feels 80% better. I am wondering if my back is still very stiff now, and maybe some yoga would help me out. I really don't have time for yoga on top of running, and taking care of Hope, but maybe even if I can do some moves every other night to keep it loose will help. I used to take a Power Yoga class before I got married and loved it, but now, I just can't leave little Hope. I know that is probably not right, but I hate to be selfish right now. But now I know when my back is killing me, go for a long easy run. Works for me!
