OK. The pattern usually goes something like this:
- I injure my back doing something stupid, like Karate.
- The osteopath cracks it back into position.
- Yoga keeps my back flexible, strong and happy.
- Everything goes well for a few months.
- Goto 1.
Wow. That’s the first time I’ve used a goto statement since I was a kid programming on a ZX81 🙂
Anyway, on Friday one of the girls at Karate asked me if my back was OK. She said I wasn’t moving well and thought my back might have gone out again. Everything felt good so I thought nothing more of it.
Next day, bang. My back felt nasty. Added to that, I had promised to teach two Yoga classes for a friend who was away for his wedding anniversary. I managed to muddle through the classes OK, but my sciatic nerve was firing like crazy making my left leg freak out.
I’ve just got to survive a day of playing with my nephews today before a hasty trip to the oeseopath so I can start the cycle again.
You gotta laugh…
