Well, I did it good this time. Being 6’3” is no easy task in itself but delivering Snapple for 5 years a young hero did take it’s toll. Off and on for the last 25 years I have had back issues. I have a strong core and back but ultimately did some disk/vertebrae damage over the years and this weekend has left me in the most pain in 20 years. I know the inflammation will sunside and I will get back to a semi normal state but I really need to see a specialist. It’s Tuesday, 3 days after the race and it took me 5 min to get out of my car the last two days after getting to work. The last week was tough on it’s own as I did a special tig welding project for njit with 14 hours of bending over my welding table. This followed by a slip on the first wood crossing at Iron Furnace left me in a bad spot. I basically rode 1.5 laps by compensating with other muscles. Fast forward from saturday to tuesday, about 20 advil and 2 chiro/pt visits later and I feel worse. Eggshells to the extreme. The pain meter hasn’t hit 12 in a long long time. Shooting pains, no good position, ice, cbd clinic stuff doesn’t seem to work. I know it’s temporary with inflammation but on the other hand I have a family to support. The big guy thing ro do is at the minimum get it checked out. Like I said, I am no stranger to back pain but this time it’s been relentless.
