Where has the time gone!? 4 days until the Spartan Super??
Last week I mentioned that my back was bugging me and I was trying to let it rest. Well, apparently I didn’t.
I really, really tried. It was feeling a lot better but I was not content with sitting still and so I worked it a little harder than I should have. Chalk it up to me being stubborn or the fact that I’ve dealt with the discomfort of a crooked back for so long – I tend to just keep moooooving along.
It’s probably from Sunday’s workout – 2 tabatas. 1 focusing on cardio and plyometrics, the other on strength. I think doing the renegade rows with heavy bells was not the best choice. But now I have to deal with the consequences of that.
Lots of heat on & off, stretching, sitting straight, no lifting… Only good thing to come of it us is back rubs from my husband.
Since I got that KT tape for my knee last week, I’m trying it out on my back too. I asked my chiropractor on Monday for some tips on how to apply it (since KT tape doesn’t really have a video for scoliosis pain, just general lower back or wherever). She recommended I pull the muscle up and out. So Canon and I are trying different methods of taping it on, what the best anchor point is, best tension, best route for the tape….
Hopefully by Saturday morning we find the sweet spot! I think today’s taping is better than yesterdays.. We’re definitely getting closer to getting it supported. Until Saturday, I’m going to really take it slow – especially since Canon threatened to pull me from the race if I’m in pain. So now I really gotta keep it together!
Wish me luck!
