After getting off to a great start, the past couple days have been difficult for me in the fitness department. My hip, low back and neck have been more painful than other days recently. My hip was bothering me so badly that it was causing me to limp which I am sure put additional strain on my low back and through me out of sorts. Today I finally got in to my chiropractor. It was obvious and he confirmed that my whole spine was out of alignment from my neck all the way down to my tailbone. The adjustment itself was painful and although I am walking better, my neck is really tight and sore. I took a couple Aleve right before going in for the adjustment and was hopeful that I would be feeling better enough to go walking, but my neck is still very tight and painful. I really need to get back out walking, so I will let my tense and tight neck hopefully relax more tonight, take something more before I go to bed and commit to going for a walk early in the morning ..... I really do enjoy my walks!!!
