The good news is that the Chiro was finally able to coral that piece of scar tissue and made me scream like a little girl. However, he did loosen it up a lot and it is about 70% resolved which is a LOT better than I have been at for a long time. Which meant that my run on Friday was one of my better ones in quite a while.
The bad news is that at Tuesday’s Quarry Road Trail 5K, I ate dirt and wrenched my back pretty good. It was sore on Wednesday, felt a little better Thursday and hardly bothered at all on Friday. However, on Saturday, after I ran with Bennie, it hurt like a son of b$%$#. I didn’t get to do a lot else that day, because of how much discomfort I was in.
Surprisingly, when I woke up this morning, it felt pretty good and when I ran with Bennie, I tried something different. I didn’t put his leash on my belt. It worked, no pain, so his constant tugging, pulling and then tugging some more must have aggravated whatever I did on Tuesday, just enough to make it painful. I was able to run a couple of miles afterwards without any issues, so it seems that I am back on track for running again.
Finally, it really feels as though I am making headway towards running comfortably again, it has been awhile.
