Weak Muscles? Not Happy!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

I have been going to physical therapy for my lower back. I asked the pt about why it hurts when I walk a lot. I really want to start a running program. Anyways, she told me it is because the muscles are weak. Why, never thought I would have weak muscles. I told her I walk a lot and she said that I should still continue walking, but when I start to have pain to stop and keep building up. I feel so old! And I am not!!! I have a young mind and heart - but my body is old! That completely sucks! So I am not happy with being told that and will really make sure I do muscle strengthening more often!
So if you don't work your muscles = you may wind up like me!

Work those muscles people! Keep them strong!

    I am a runner and I still have weak muscles. My back muscles have been overcompensating because my ab muscles are too weak. I have started working with a personal trainer at my gym so I have a targeted workout plan to address the issue. Good news is that our bodies get strong quickly so you'll be feeling better (and stronger) in no time.

    It'll be okay - think how great your back will feel when the muscles are stronger! We're both older than we were yesterday, but younger today than tomorrow, right?
