I pulled a muscle in my back.
- I could actually feel it pop when I was lifting weights at the gym.
I shouldn’t have put that extra 50 pounds on the barbell. So now I’m in a lot of pain. I’ve also probably set my exercise goals back at least a month. I’m not going to be able to exercise until my back is completely healed. I did end up going to the doctor and they gave me some cream to put on my back muscle. It helps a little bit but not very much. It hurts to walk. It hurts to do anything. I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night because my back hurts so bad. So I decided to get out of bed. That’s when I noticed how warm the floors are. We have heated floors. I never really thought much about them except that they were convenient and much more quiet than forced air heaters. However, I suddenly got the idea that I would like to lay on the nice warm floor. I assumed it would feel good on my back. And you know what? It did. I ended up falling asleep right there on the floor with the radiant heat soaking through my back muscles. In the morning, I assumed I would have a lot of trouble getting off of the heated floor due to my back pain. But I actually didn’t. I could definitely feel the strained muscle but it wasn’t super painful. I think I’m going to start sleeping on the heated floors for a few nights now. I bet my back will be in great shape in no time.
