Weekly Wrap: No politics, just running and a cranky back

Sunday: P90X2 yoga in the morning. I enjoyed this one, as it was both tough and I felt very stretched out when I was done.  Later in the day I did a 7 mile progressive run that felt very divine. The weather has been holding in the high 50s low 60s lately and it's perfect for running. I also was feeling a bit like my lower back was thinking about getting cranky

Monday: Cranky back.. no running. which was sad considering the perfect fall running weather.  I did take a short walk and watched the Crown on Netflix

Tuesday: 15 minutes of easy yoga in the morning and a short run after work but still had cranky back

Wednesday: Back still cranky but I did get in a 5.5 mile  run that actually felt really good. I didn't get it Instagrammed,  Slacking off I guess!

Thursday and Friday:  nothing. Back getting better but really cranky still.

Saturday: Felt quite a bit better so I got in a good run first thing in the morning and since I was in a hurry I didn't even get it Instagrammed! Did it even happen? This guy will vouch for me

Note my super late blooming mums that smell like heaven
Why was I in such a hurry Saturday?  We had to get up to Bozeman for the last home football game of the season.  Our team hasn't done so well this year in fact going into this game they had no conference wins. :(    The weather was amazing and the sunset sky gorgeous and yes we won!

and we made sure Cade got his picture taken with  badass senior Chad Newell. We will miss him. He had a great game.
It was a great way to spend our 11th anniversary.  I have to say I have a pretty awesome husband :)

And my yoga poses for the week.. all the rest involved lower back bends and my back wasn't up to it.
Miles for the week: about 20
Yoga: 2 times
Strength: NONE

  1. First of all, thanks for the "no politics." Seriously, THANKS!!!!! Second...cranky back, yuck. Amazing how a itty bitty twinge in an obscure spot can have such an impact. I don't have back issues very often, but when I do have a flare-up, it's nasty. Hope you're feeling better.

  2. What do you think happened to your back? My youngest tweaked his back this week after he was just cleared to return to sports (6 months after he broke his leg). Luckily, his has cleared up with rest. I hope yours gets better too!

  3. Happy anniversary!

    So sorry about your back - hope it heals up for good soon. x

  4. Sorry to hear your back is bothering you. Hopefully it'll be back to normal soon. Your weekend sounds fun going to watch the game.

  5. That's annoying that your back gave you trouble this week! Mine bothers me on and off, and Im pretty sure that sitting at work all day is to blame. Ive been trying to be better about moving throughout the day and foam rolling in the evenings.

  6. I've been having back issues for a while (from an old water skiing mishap). It doesn't hurt while running, thankfully. But laying in the bed is the worst. The massage therapist says it's pulling from the front -- from the hip flexor area. I'm not sure I believe that though. How fun that your son got to have his picture made with the QB. Oh, I'm sure Cola can vouch for the running! Thanks for linking, Christy!

  7. What a beautiful sunset you captured over the football field. I bet your son was beside himself for getting the picture with the Senior, that was very nice of him too. Did I hear right yall are supposed to get bad weather?


Because I love hearing from you all!
