a couple of weeks ago or so i experienced a lower back injury and for two days could barely make it out of bed... normally this would doom me to my old ways, but i've been working through it and started back on the trail this morning. i can't remember who posted to try walking/running on the dirt next to the trail, but it has worked!
a chiropractor told me to cool my jets on running until my back was better. he said he was proud of my "gumption" but that my core was just too weak to go full guns... My goal right now for the next week is to do my core training exercises as assigned and walk 1 mile every day. I will heal and I WILL RUN!!!
What advice do you guys have to share for us "runners" that are healing through injuries?
