I got a back injury last Wednesday and am recovering very slowly. It happened during training but I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily a sport-related injury; I think it could have happened any time. I’m not quite sure of the nature of my injury, but my chiro thinks it’s a disc tear. He hasn’t ordered any scans to save me the $$$ for an injury that seems to be mild (relatively speaking).
My activity levels have dropped to a minimum because I can’t walk a lot. It hurts to sit, so I’ve been skipping lectures and work, and meditating on a stool instead of a cushion. It hurts to sleep (especially getting in bed, changing position and getting out of bed) but that’s something I can’t skip. Needless to say, I’m getting fat. I’ve been wearing track pants so I’m not sure of the magnitude but I’m guessing I won’t fit into my work pants the day after tomorrow.
I’m less hungry and therefore trying to eat less but it’s hard when you really like food. Gaining weight is annoying and difficult to reverse for people like me but what really frustrates me is not being able to be active.
