....which is what my osteopath will say today at 12.30 when l stumble in.
It's been 9 days since the 'dinner accident' where l pulled a tray from the oven and tweaked something, deeply somewhere in the lower back, and it's my first non running injury, but injury all the same.
I will see her rather than a physio, she dealt with it years ago and to her credit her charges haven't followed the inflation. I'm hoping to get it fixed as l simply need to run soon, it's terrible to simply faff around twiddling my thumbs and feasting on painkillers.
What l do doesn't help my lower back, and my body shape and height makes me susceptible to such problems. I failed to stretch as much as l should have done recently and it shows.
It goes to show the importance of stretching and strengthening exercises during rest days, do not skip them. I did. Maybe that's not the reason for this injury but it may well be.
Wish me luck, that lady will stretch me like a chewing gum...
