Probably off the rest of the week

ORN: Zero, nada, zip.

This back pain has really stuck around longer than I had hoped. While ice and stretching are helping, it is still painful, to the point this morning where it hurt to simply walk right after I got up. Today, ibuprofin helped noticibly and it is better tonight. In fact the back is much better, but the right thigh remains painful.

I'm thinking I'll just lay off the rest of the week and see how it feels this weekend. My schedule calls for a key week this week, culminating in a 16 miler on Saturday. Don't think so. If I can get this sorted out and pick up again next week, I'll be OK.

All of this injury stuff is a wonderful teacher. Patience. The good with the bad. Particularly poingiant the last couple of days as the weather has been dry and sunny and in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Wow. And I can only watch it.

Good for the character development! Persevere...yeah, that's the ticket.

Sigh. This sounds all too familiar!! I'm sorry that it's your turn to learn the lessons...hopefully you'll quickly breeze right through to the final exam.

Keep listening to your body and persevere!
