My back is finally coming around. It is still painful, but I plan to race full tilt this weekend, no holding back, no protecting the back. I'm going for it.
Wednesday - lift during lunch / 5 mile run with A after work
Thursday - bike to work(20), lift during lunch, bike home (20)
Friday - I was going to hit the trails and ride with friend in town, but I'm thinking I have to bail and just rest the legs before the big weekend. Planning an easy swim and strength session in the AM.
