Well damn. I went to the gym Monday and Tuesday this week. I prefer riding but life was busy and the gym was all I had time for. Tuesday I incorporated some leg work in. Doing squats, with relatively light weight, I tweaked my lower back. Tuesday night and Wednesday morning were rough but some Advil and stretching really seems to help so I haven't gone in. It's not great but it's getting better. I planned on riding bike Tuesday and Wednesday but I canceled that. While I was bummed I wasn't too distraught missing riding in crazy winds.
Tonight we head down to Jen's folks house so we can jump on a plane to Florida by 6 on Friday. Missing all week riding does have me wishing I did send my bike down but some "off" time should do me well. The next test will be if I can carry suitcases through the airport without falling over!
