Back At It

March 26, 2009

Well my back pain has persisted this week although not without some relief.  I saw the doctor yesterday who has referred me to a chiropractor because I have a joint out of place in my upper back.  In the meantime, the anti-inflammatories have taken away most of the pain and swelling so I am feeling much more functional in the world.  I took yesterday off but got back in the pool tonight with no discomfort whatsoever.  I even cranked out the set of 6 x 200 fly with no pain, so things are looking up!

Still no running and cycling but I’d rather take it slow than make things worse, so I’m gritting my teeth and dealing with it.  Only nine days until GB arrives thus beginning my two week break from work and two weeks with my better half!  It has already been six weeks since we saw each other, so this next week will make our longest period of separation thus far.  Needless to say we are counting down the days!

    6 X 200 fly. You are a stud. Seriously. Not from this planet – 🙂 NICE JOB! Hooray that GB is arriving – SO HAPPY for you! I bet that will be better than 1200 fly! 🙂

    Glad to hear your back pain has subsided!! 6×200 fly is so, so not even in the realm of possibility for me. Very impressive! 🙂 Have fun with GB – 2 weeks will seem like heaven after all your time apart! 🙂
