got off to a late start today but late is better than never. i had to rest up for awhile to let the pain subside in my back. i want to workout but am afraid i will damage myself further. now what? i will not give up because of this injury... i will just have to figure out a way around it. i am open to any all suggestions. keep me in your prayers as someday i will have to have surgery.

    What type of back injury do you have? I can empathize with trying to exercise with a painful injury. Last week I developed tendonitis in both my knees. It's been challenging to do cardio and strength training this past week. But I've just focused on movements that won't aggravate my knees such as an ergometer (upper body cardio) and upper body strength training.

    Do you have membership at a gym? I know a few people who have had back injuries that will use a recumbent bicycle, since it places the least amount of strain on the back. And for therapeutic measure you could see about using a hot tub, or just running a hot bath at home.

    Good luck! emoticon
