Previously I mentioned that I am doing the Couch to 5K program with my friend, Red. Well, there have been some issues. A day after the first run, Red experienced some mild lower back pain. We thought this was just the normal muscles aches from starting a new exercise program. A day after the second run, Red had severe back pain for the next few days. We have no idea what happened. Red’s running form seemed fine, she’s got decent trainers and she regularly cycles.
So we took a week off and tried again yesterday. The run went fine, but shortly after she got back home, she proceeded to vomit uncontrollably. She was fine an hour later, just tired. Today she’s doing fine and *knock on wood* doesn’t have any back pain or stomach upset whatsoever.
We’re going to continue with re-doing Week 1 of the program this week as long as there are no further problems. It seems the stomach issue was a one-off thing, but if you guys have any insight into the potential causes of the back pain, we’d be interested in hearing them.
Say that again?
My mobile (sorry, cell phone) has predictive text. I leave it on because it increases my texting speed which can be categorized as glacial at best. However, sometimes it’s more trouble than it’s worth. A recent text to my friend Geordie was meant to say “I have tea and snacks here if you want to come over.” Instead it changed ‘snacks’ to ‘smacks’. Inviting, no?
The phone also regularly types ‘ho’ in place of ‘in’. You think it’s trying to tell me something?
I watched a movie trailer today for a film called Take Me Home Tonight. Wanna guess what song was in the trailer? Here ya go.
