Bear with me for a minute here. I'm going to rant.
Sunday morning as I sat at the kitchen table eating perfectly cooked sunny-side up eggs, something unwound in my back. Like a spring un-sproinging itself, I could feel things slowly go south. Despite immediately going to lie down and get the pressure off it was too late. It was done. Welcome to spasm ville!
I'm a little bitter, especially as yesterday was supposed to be a ski day for me and my son. It was sunny out too. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I think I've been doing everything right...a simple routine of exercises and stretches every morning to keep things strong. No bike rides since Halloween and even when I go skiing, I've been playing conservatively and mostly just turning, in powder. No moguls and I avoid choppy snow like the plague.
So, where do I go from here? Well, I finally broke down and picked up an inversion table. While none of my medical professionals have suggested one, everyone I know who has serious back pain issues who has gotten one has benefited. Right now, I'll do almost anything to make this better. Just when I was getting used to not being in pain when I drove places...seriously!
Its not all dire. I should be getting my new camera today. That way I will be able to shoot some HD video of me in the inversion table. Oooohhhh - that's sure to get the sponsors flocking to me! I predict a sharp increase in traffic on this site too!! I am also finally taking my AST Level 1 course this weekend at Mt. Cain. Hopefully I can keep up. Its too late to cancel it now...
