Cam, you should definitely retaliate by climbing back on top of her. You won't need foot rests so you get to use your hands a lot more. Only fair.

Good point. And it's called an involuntary spasm, anyway. Not sexual assault! grin

I did the 15k Badger Mountain Challenge hike/run with my coworker today. It was pretty fun. My legs feel it a bit, but not bad. I'd say we only actually ran maybe a third of it, or at least only a third of the time. Not sure on what the breakup of the distance would be. She'd been working on hills, but we still didn't do much running up them. Still, I think we had a nice, brisk walking pace. I'm glad she kept the pace sane, because I know I would have killed myself if I was trying it on my own. I feel like I had a good workout, but I'm not destroyed. I'd do it again, and at least we have a good idea of the trail now so we can push ourselves a little harder at certain parts.

While you guys have been off at extreme events like Badger chasing and weight belt popping, I have been on a much more modest quest for fitness: relieving my back pain.

Since November, I have teamed up with a sports medicine oriented chiropractor and have started a simple routine to increase core strength and flexibility and also to relieve the many, many knotted and seized muscles in my back.

So far, I have shed a modest 5 lb, significantly increased flexibility and eliminated enough back pain that I can sleep well and not worry about back spasms after a tough day at the office.

Random piece of trivia: did you know your butt is part of your back?

Fred, are you talking about the coccyx (tailbone), which is the base of our spine/back (it's part of our butt if I'm not mistaken)?

Nope, I was being more obscure than that. I was referring to the interconnectedness of musculature and that what many people feel is lower back pain actually has its roots in the glutes. Your butt. grin

My doctor never believed me when I told here my back issues affected, um , other things.

Pretty much any point of the body where you can bend has overlaping muscle/connective tissue and a problem on one side can and usually will affect the other

Well, I signed up for a 12k run, again with my coworker. I had fun with the 15k, so this should be another good time, even if the towns we'll be near have gang activity. Ha ha.

They posted pictures of the 15k, so here are a couple of me and my coworker.

One

Two

Three

I think my coworker said we were in there more, but I'm too lazy to try to go through them. Those ones were the easiest to find.

That should make you run faster.
