After yesterday's successful (read: pain-free) stair session I thought about going for a run outside but then thought better and opted for indoors figuring it would be pretty hard for me to roll my ankle on the treadmill... Luckily I was right.
But all was not well. I warmed up for five minutes and the upped the tempo just a bit and right when I did I got a sharp pain in my lower back! Crap. I was able to run through it and by the end it was almost totally gone but what is going on? Perhaps I have been favoring certain muscles after my injury or perhaps I am just super tight (I am super tight) and so this is a manifestation of that? Glad it was not any worse.
At lunch I got down to the IMA for 30 solid minutes of stretching. It felt great (read: it was really hard). Need to work more of that in for sure.
Looks like my weight on Monday was not an anomaly. Rats.
