I have to be very careful of my back, although I've done no major injury damage. I've pulled muscles, though. Yuck! I've found that I avoid all injuries by warming up and stretching (in that order) before I do any exercise.

Destroyed my knees as a kid. Probably had a lot to do with not properly stretching. Had surgery on both before age 20 and now they are great. Other than that, mostly blisters/calluses on my feet from distance walking.

The only injuries I've had in sports was while in school and that was too many years to worry about. Exercising, I fell off my bike trying to ride it. I put those everlasting tires on it so I'll never have a flat and it makes it harder to ride. It's surprising what granite gravel will do to your knees.
Watch your thoughts; the become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
The more you gripe, the longer God lets you live!

Sprained ankles many times sometimes due to sports and other times due to clumsiness! This led to a stress fracture in one of my ankles and I had to wear a cast for a month last year. It's still not completely healed and I doubt it ever will because I refuse to not stay off my feet!

back pain if I do too much, which benches me for a few days.

"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle." -Geo
