Sore lower back

My lower back was quite stiff and sore this morning. I didn't notice it when I first got up but by the time I got to work and sat at the computer, it was really quite sore. Not quite sure why it was playing up - maybe doing an offroad run concentrating on the downhills yesterday afternoon was my downfall. Whatever, by lunchtime my back problem had improved so I was off to the gym for my upper body weights workout and also to work off the chocolate cake I had at our section meeting this morning!

Gym - lunchtime
Session - upper body weights session, the same as last week
Ab exercises - same as last week
Stretches - same as last week

A good session - it was great to get out of the office for a while. Its been so busy at work lately and I've been working at nights from home, so its nice to be able to switch off and think about something completely different, like the effort of continuing to lift weights when certain muscles are screaming out to stop.

Didn't go swimming tonight after work as I have to much work to do and that is why I am still sitting in front of a computer.

(am) run before work
(pm) back to yoga - Level 1 - yay!

I absolutely loved the yoga class! And my Peter has just visited me to say I'm going to be a grandma again - a good day! Take care of that back.

You have so much work and still have all that energy for the gym, you are so engaged!!! I wish that back pain don't come back... how are your shoulders and neck??

CJ - how do you do it? Your motivation is awesome.
How do you balance home life with the many hours you dedicate to exercise?

Hi excellent blog! Does running a blog such as this take a large amount of work?
I've virtually no knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I just needed to ask. Appreciate it!
