PT! PT! Good for you! Good for me!

On December 16, during a weight lifting workout, I lost control of the bar and experienced a flexion/rotation injury between my L4 and L5 vertebrae, on the left side. The ensuing pain has left me unable to complete my normal training regimen. I am forced to take some time off, when I should be peaking for early season races.

I saw Renee Songer of Agile PT in Palo Alto on December 28. With her help, I am recovering faster than I would have otherwise.

Hopefully this is just a minor setback, and I will be in top shape for early season stage races. At this point, strength training has done more harm than good.
