Down but not out!

Friday, February 10, 2012

I've been struggling with back pain from a fall I took on ice a week ago. Up to yesterday I managed some cardio most days but now I have to give my cardio workouts up for a while as the pain is worse. It's weird to sit around all day after 13 months of almost daily cardio training. It's also a struggle to eat within my target range. Hope this gets better soon.

    Oh! I'm so sorry to hear this. Rest up, recover as quick as you can so you can get back to it! It's better to rest and heal than to push and aggravate! Best to you! Karen

    Oh my goodness did you hurt yourself badly?

Its (still) a huge fear of mine, falling and really injuring myself...I often get irrationally scared.

Could you do some of the chair based exercise work outs designed for people with limited mobility?

    Ouch! Hope you are feeling better soon. Take it easy and don;' overdo. Have you gone to see a chiropractor at all?

    The ice can be so treacherous! I hope that you heal quickly. Best wishes.

    so sorry to read this. It's better to rest and heal than workout when your body says NO! I'm sure the habits you have started will not be scuppered by this setback, you are a true Sparker and exercise is in the blood!
best wishes for a full recovery
