Well, sometimes getting started again can be a challenge. I visited my physical therapist today because my lower-right back has been hurting as well as my left hamstring, and they seem to be connected. If I try to stretch my left hamstring even a tiny bit it just kills my lower right back. I mean I can’t even begin to stretch my hamstring, it’s that bad.
My therapist was actually a bit stumped by it because he said what I’m experiencing sounds like joint pain, except that in the specific spot where I have the pain there is no joint. His diagnosis was a bit more thorough than that, but the long and short of it is that I can’t run for four weeks, and when I start again I’m supposed to take it super easy. In the meantime he wrote me a prescription to go to the gym and start riding a stationary recumbent bike, do some easy breaststroke swimming, and take a yoga class. No weights, and no twisting. Just easy does it.
So I’ll be signing up today or tomorrow at the Lifetime Fitness in South Jordan. Anybody know of any special deals I can get there? I would go to 24-Hour Fitness since they’re a lot cheaper and I’m not picky, but I had such a horrible time with their cancellation policy the last time.
