I did it.  I signed up for the Jones Gap Hospital Rock 9 miler in September.  Let the running painfully slow death hiking begin!

Two days of back spasms equals a crappy weekend on the couch.  Fingers crossed for a better Monday.

That's probably not the best attitude to go in with, but good luck just the same

Obviously you've never seen me run!  :d

The race is on one of the most difficult trails in SC, so I know it will be a tough hike no matter what.  It's not like I could pick an easy race for something.

I managed an easy 40 minute walk today.  No back spasms, but my back stayed tight during the walk.

I find that sometimes when I feel crappy and my back and/or other body parts hurt, I just go out and run anyway and it loosens up during the run.  And I feel much better afterward.  Barring an actual injury of course, running cures all ailments!

I did another 50 minute walk last night, followed by light stretching.  I'm still having back issues, but it's not getting any worse so I'm just going to keep plugging along.  This may well be my worst sleep injury to date.  :d

The overall plan is to spend the first month walking about 45 minutes/day every other day.  So far, so good.

30 minute hike on a moderately difficult trail.  Beautiful day.
