Two steps forward

One step back! Uggh, I swear I am so injury prone. Or maybe I am just so in tune with my body that I know when to dial it back. On Friday, my back started acting up. The old injury from December of 2011 a lower lumbar injury. Basically, it feels like my left hip is all out of whack but it is my lower back.

I am not giving up on my running/walking streak. I am just modifying it, which works because I have a crazy week. My goal will continue to be 1 mile a day, if I feel good after I will do 20-30 minutes on the spin bike. I know that does not aggravate my back that much. 

Why is this week crazy! Wednesday my baby, my first baby girl turns 7! It feels like yesterday I was holding her in my arms. We are going to Great Wolf and plan to have us much fun as we can. Then once we are recovered from that birthday fun, my baby baby girl turns 1 on Saturday! Now, how did that happen. I was just pregnant and complaining about round ligament pain right.

With all the birthday's coming up today I need to wrap presents, some  how! These girls are into everything and I get no privacy when they are wake. Think I can get the 7 year old to take a nap?

How do you deal with injury? Are you a person who pushes through or rests up?
If I was training for something I would probably push through. Since, I am taking it easy getting back into things I am voting for resting.


  1. I have shin splints right now in my left leg....I have never had those before and talk about annoying! I have been biking more lately and loving it. 16 miles this AM~done!

  2. I fractured my foot last year doing Zumba, and hopped back on the exercise train a little too soon after my injury. Now I am much more careful about giving myself a break! :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your girls :)
