stretch it out….

I torqued something in my back at work….and, between the injury and driving around for 5 days from the passenger side of our Toyota truck….straddling and reaching and trying to stay on the road, I hurt myself pretty profoundly.

So….I took a couple of days off and tried to stretch my back out and keep it warm….rest….etc.

I wonder if I would have hurt myself if I’d been more flexible to start with?

They say that sitting a lot is very damaging to your body.

I sit all the time.


I know that sitting shortens all the muscles that should be long and lean.

I am a bundle of tightness.

I better start acting like an athlete if I’m going to make it through this “postal thing”.

I can’t live in pain all the time just because I need some money to keep our boat afloat.

Even if I can’t touch the back of my head with my heels, a little bit of flexibility wouldn’t hurt.

It can’t be any worse than not being able to tie my shoes in the morning, right?
