|It is football season right?|
Magic, pure magic. I am not 100% cured and will probably not be running at all the next few days but I feel better. With a recommendation to return in a few days and orders to ice every hour I should be better soon. I have never been to the chiropractor but it seems to be offering me some relief.
Kim mentioned (amazing blogger and runner-go check her out) that her fuel belt hurt her back and that got me thinking that the reason I probably hurt my back is because I had filled my hydration pack up all the way due to the many miles which I had never done before. It was a bit heavier than I am used to and that may have done the trick. Or maybe it was the weight lifting, yoga, other miles run that week, or the weird cough/sneeze thing I had done a half hour earlier...with the back it is hard to tell.
Back pain or no back pain it is taper time anyway so if you need me I will be using tapering as an excuse to stuff my face and nap a lot.
How do you taper?
