Ack! I just threw my back out big time, about half an hour ago. I hope it's just a torn muscle instead of something nasty like discs.
I know exactly when I did it - Catherine was having a little behavior problem and I was carrying her to her room for some time for quiet solitary reflection. She was kicking and screaming a little in the attempt to divert my attention.
Then >twang< I felt something give out in the middle of my back, fairly painfully. Ouch!! It's possible might have said a few bad words as I set Catherine and her flailing arms and legs down rather precipitously.
I suppose it's good that my back waited until now when the girls are big enough to climb up on most things themselves if they need to! Plus we have a prescription in the cabinet which I may potentially abuse tonight to get a good night's sleep. Don't tell anyone.
And I was just emailing my training buddies today about the two coming half marathons we're doing together. I'm glad now that the first one is not for another six weeks! This training week may be as light as last week if my back doesn't recover quickly.
