First, I ran 3 miles today without any back troubles.....YEAH!!! It feels great to be out there running again. I ran very cautiously and slowly, as memories of the pain I had are still very fresh. But...I did it! I am a much happier person when I am running. When I got home I had a slight ache, so I took some Motrin and did some ice and rested and it was quickly gone.
I have blogged before about my love of Rascal Flatts' song "Unstoppable" and applied it to my running. Well....they just released an Olympic version of the song with some changed lyrics and it ROCKS!!!
