Strained/Ripped back muscle, time for a break unfortunately

Posted by Kevin Doak on Tuesday at: 11:56am (May 5th, 2015)

A few months ago (as long as last fall), I pulled/strained/ripped a muscle in my lower back.  The pain comes and goes but I simply haven't stopped exercising in that long.  I'm seeing a massage therapist and taking a week off the pool.  I've had such a successful run of daily workouts, this isn't ideal but I want to have a great fall season and I can't further my training without a healthy back.  It's been affecting my workouts and my daily life.  I seem to move through the water just fine but basically every other moment of the day is filled with moderate to severe pain.

Time for a break, simple as that.  Afterward, I'll attack my training again!
