Nathan’s daily fitness: Back pain returns to 50%, stretching and core take it down to 20%, meeting with Patrick for Pony Express 100

Weigh in: 190:5 lbs

No morning run.

This morning I woke up on the couch (2:30 am) I should not be on that couch at all. It’s not helping the pain in my lower-left back. Went to bed and slept well. Woke up feeling pretty good.

Walked with Kaye a bit around OC Tanner and felt some strain in my back (was wearing a backpack for almost a mile of this.)

Breakfast: Had a bowl of oatmeal, Crystal Light, and an English Muffin

Went down to gym and stretched.
1 minute standard plank
45 seconds side planks

After this, felt MUCH better.

Now I’m concentrating on sitting straight at work, not slumping in chair.

Lunch: Fidler’s Elbow French Dip sandwich, water
