You never know how much you need all of your muscles until something gives out. After a 10 year hiatus, I decided to go with my husband to practice golf as it is a very good source of exercise. Unfortunately, I over powered one of my shots and threw my back out. The whole time hubby kept telling me I was either standing wrong or was standing up when I swung. Well I ended up paying the price because I wasn't listening. This is just a reminder to me that no matter what, you need to pay attention to your body. Listen when someone is trying to let you know something is not right from what they can see. Don't try to over do something, especially if your body isn't use to those movements anymore. Now, I have to take it easy this week but I know I can do my exercise, even limited. It's all in will power. I WILL do it, I WILL follow through, I WILL succeed, I WILL keep going!!!

    Oh my, back troubles are no fun. Hubby suffers from lower back pain, and last year because of over doing, he missed 9 weeks of golf. Now that was torture for him. This is different, because he has all winter been doing core strengthening exercises. Knock on wood, so far all goes well for him. Hope you get better soon. When you back heals, think about strengthening your core. Spark has some excellent back exercises on here, something else I would check out.
