Anyone else do this?

I woke up yesterday morning, and the left side, in the bottom of my back felt…crunchy.

I know that’s a really weird way to describe it, but it felt like I crunched something between lifting and between teaching a class the day before.  I played with the idea of still going out with some of the girls  from  Lululemon for our Wednesday workout, but by the time I went home and took two Advils, it was pretty clear that it was just not going to happen.  I was exhausted, and the slightest bit of tension on my lower back was killing.

And then the irrationally anxious part of me started to rear its rude, ugly head.

//What if I’m really injured?

//What if I never run again?

//What if I magically, in the time where I don’t work out today, start drinking Cokes, eating Twinkies, and generally stop caring about my health.

And then the rational (ish) side of me kicks in.  You pulled a muscle in your back lifting.  It happens.  Take a day off.  And reassess in the morning.

Am I the only one who gets weird like this? 

One thought on “Anyone else do this?

  1. Every time I hurt myself, I wonder if this will be the thing that ends my sport ability – I had a bout with plantar fasciitis last year that had me limping and I had to crab walk down the steps. I remember wondering, “is this the thing that’s going to make me walk with a cane forever?” You’re not weird. You’re just like me, but then, I’m weird. So I guess I didn’t help 🙂
    Btw. I enjoy the occasional Twinkie-like treat.
