My aching back!
Tuesday, November 24, 2009
Why . . . why . . .? Right when I get into a regular exercise routine and am making progress, my back pain flares up. Granted, I am probably overdoing it. I am probably not stretching enough. amazing after months of dreading exercise, I am back to a place where I enjoy it, look forward to it even. I suppose I ought to be grateful that my body talks to me and gives me feedback, but it is such a bummer when the feedback is pain and soreness.
I used to be an athlete and I just crave the endorphins and the positive vibes that come from being physically active. I can't wait to be thinner and more able to move freely. There is no better motivation as far as I can tell!
Today I think I will go for a swim in an effort to keep up my streak of aerobic exercise, but let my back and achy knees have a rest.
I read a spark article today that said "no pain is gain" . . . and I guess I have to agree!
Hope everyone has a great week and wonderful Thanksgiving!
