On the injured list

At work we have been shifting and moving journals for a few days and were almost done. I bent over to pick up a stack that was on the floor. As I was coming up I heard a loud pop (or at least it was loud to me!). My lower back popped and went out. I let go of the journals and tried to stand up straight. It hurt really bad!!

Since it was jeremys birthday I made an appointment to go to the chiropractor today. We got back in town about 8pm and I joked that maybe he would make a house call.

I woke up this morning and it felt better but was still sore and hurting! I went to the chiropractor and he said it was definitely inflamed and tight. He also said no running til at least Saturday but he would let me know for sure on Thursday when I go back if it would be longer.

I hate that I had just had a good run and was ready to start running 4 days a week again.

Hopefully I can run on Saturday although it won't be the 10 miler that I had planned. But I started training early incase something like this happened so it wouldn't set me back to far. I still can get in two 10's and two 12's without the 10 this weekend before the half.

  1. :( Oh no!!!!

    Well I did my first day of Bridge to 10K yesterday, and my calves hurt SO much today... SO MUCH. My left in particular. I couldn't run or jog even in place today...
    SO I played it smart...

    I am just so happy to be back into it again... (even if it isn't on the main roads yet! Ha!)

    And bummer... you can't even call it a running injury!!

  2. Ahhh Man! I hate that! My back always seems to go out when I have DETERMINED that nothing in getting in the way of my workouts. I hate that for you, but yay for thinking ahead!

  3. Yikes, sorry to hear that!! hope your back gets better soon!
