So, naturally my husband and I had really kicked up the workouts, the clean eating and then BAM! I did something awful to my back. It could have been some intense, interval workouts I had been doing, or something as simple as laying out by the pool-since I was in a lounge float throwing the football with my son and husband for hours the other day ??
Two days ago, I started feeling pain in my leg and tightness in my back...
and now I'm practically crawling everywhere I go :-(
I've tried to pin-point exactly where I went wrong, but not sure I even know. I took the dog for a short walk this morning and could barely make it back to the house. I've been alternating ice and heat(was suggested to me) and it seems to offer very temporary relief, but for the most part...I'm struggling.
We have three days of football practice this week and while I'm so excited to watch this boy play,
I am attempting to walk with my friend tomorrow morning, so we'll see if that helps or makes it worse! I can't stand not being able to exercise...SO I'll do the best I can and if things don't get better soon, I guess I'll be seeing my doctor! I have to attempt a great walk in the morning, if not I feel helpless not being able to run, spin or do a great cross training workout...argh!!!!
How do YOU deal with injuries?
Do you push through them or give your body rest when rest is needed?
