|Yep, they fed him...|
Today I headed for the outlet mall in Vacaville intending to walk another 7-8, but called it quits at 3, because my back just would not cooperate. What stated with a minor ache whipped itself into searing pain that enveloped my entire lower back and started wrapping around my sides to my front and Motrin wasn't helping, so I decided to stop before it hurt too much to drive home.
I have no idea what it is. This doesn't feel like my typical back pain, where I can feel the grinding in my spine at L4 and L5; this is muscle pain, and I can't figure it out. My shoes aren't worn out, I haven't been carrying anything I normally don't. I'm not sure if my posture is different or not, but I better figure it out fast.
Still, I'm not worried about the Avon walk. It's two days; even if my back hurts, I can handle two days. I will whine and DKM might want to fit me with cement shoes and shove me into the bay halfway through the first day, but I can gut it out.
I'd like to figure it out before then, though.
(80% of the answer is probably lose weight, you moron, because I am carrying more than I was even in Atlanta last October, but still..)
Back or not, I'm looking forward to checking the Avon out and seeing how much I like it.
