I'm out guys. Down and bloody out! Did some "gentle" stretches yesterday morning and managed to pull a muscle in my back. I wasn't going crazy or anything, just finished my sesh, got up to walk to the shower and then realised that my lower back felt like it had a bag of cement attached to it. PAINFUL OR WHAT?!!! Whew! So spent the day eating neurofen sandwiches and putting a hot pack down my strides (at the back obvs). By bedtime last night it had eased and today I can even walk! YEaahhhhhh!!!
So it's still tender and Mr Physio is due tomorrow afternoon to examine my right leg. So I'm gonna get my money's worth when I see him. The thought of actually running at the moment is a non starter owing to my own stupidity.
So the moral of this story is - if you stretch and you're over 50, go bloody easy!
Thanks for reading.
