I'm very frustrated right now because as I had been going to the gym daily and was just starting to feel like a younger me again, last Monday during a sprint I felt twinge in my back. I have never had any type of back injury before so this was something new to me and I quit my run hoping it was just the result of the wrong movement and could just relax. WRONG! It tightened up something fierce that night and I was literally unable move much the next two days even after going to my doctor and getting some work done on it. I was diagnosed with a severe back strain and still a week later have not been cleared to lift or run. I can walk and have been but as active as I usually am with athletics and such it does not feel like is doing much. I haven't gained any weight but have been watching closely what I eat, however, I am frustrated because the doc can't give me a date when I will be able to get back into my routine. Hopefully this set back doesn't last too much longer and none of you have something like this before our Christmas goal.
