For the past few days, my lower back’s been bothering me. Nothing too serious, but a strong enough twinge to keep me from Zumba last night. I don’t know if I’m not stretching enough, the way that my feet are hitting the ground, my posture, or the way that I’m sleeping, but it’s got to stop. The cooler temperatures make it a great time to run (at least for me) and the fact that I’m taking it easy is frustrating.
It’s not spine pain, but more of a localized strain (almost like I pulled something) on my right back upper hip. I’m supposed to have group training tonight, and I think I’ll go but just take it slow like I did last week. These workouts are meant to challenge us, and while I don’t want to hurt myself further, I want to continue to improve and achieve my goal. No pain, no gain I guess?
Do you exercise through pain or take it slow?
