Not such a good week.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

My wife went out of town this week. I figured with just my son and I hanging out, I would spend a lot of time at the gym. I was so wrong...

Due to an accident that was like something out of a Keystone Cops movie, I injured my back. Since I have a bad back (spondylolthesis), back pain is not unusual, but this has been enough to keep me on the shelf. I was doing dishes in the kitchen and the dogs were begging for leftovers. Being the big softy that I am, I put down a plate for each dog. As I turned from the sink to put something in the dishwasher, I stepped on the plate that the dog, unbeknownst to me, had pushed right up behind me. The plate slipped out, taking my leg out from under me. As I began to fall, already in a twisting motion, I realized that I was going to fall on, and likely injure, the dog. I twisted further and reached out to try to brace myself so that the dog would not bear my weight. It worked for the dog, not so much for my back...

Anyway, only ended up with one day of Jiu Jitsu and one strength training session this week. I am going to rest one more day today and see if I am able to roll lightly tomorrow.
