Back Injury and No Running

I don’t know what I did or how it happened, but I woke up with severe back pain the middle of my back on Tuesday. I woke up early to run Wednesday morning, but my back was stiff and still feeling very painful, so I decided against it. This morning, the pain is greatly reduced, but still sore. I think I will wait another day or two before I go back out to do my push ups and run.

I hate it. I really want to get out there, but I have to take care of this old body or it won’t be in good enough shape to take care of me. So, I will sit it out for today and tomorrow. Unless I decide it doesn’t hurt this afternoon, in which case I’ll go against my better judgment and get a run in. We’ll see.
