When I woke up this morning, it was cold in my bedroom. It was so cold, I shivered. Apparently, I shivered so hard I pulled a muscle in my back. You know those cartoons where somebody snaps a window shade and it flies up and just spins around the rod? I felt a muscle, low in the right side of my back do that as I stood beside my bed.
So, I laid back down and stared at the ceiling, thinking about all the things I didn’t want to do at work today and how nice it would be to call in sick and tell them I’m paralyzed with back pain. The last time this happened, I missed four days of work and couldn’t work out for a month.
Then I realized it’s the fourth day of #donediedecember and I just downloaded the Seven Minute Superhero Workout app last night and have one done one third of the first mission. I was annoyed.
This caused me to drag myself out of bed and onto the floor to do my morning yoga workout. Naturally, today’s workout was all lying poses that worked the lower back. Why wouldn’t it be? About halfway through the workout, I realized my back wasn’t hurting any more, so … yeah … go yoga.
It’s still twinging as I sit in my office chair but it stops when I get up and stretch, so I’m counting today as a victory over bone idleness and the forces of wimpery.
