My Fitness Revolution Days 298 to 299: enough rest already!

Commit to be fitI’ve been a good girl and rested up my sore back muscles.  It looked as if Day 298 was going to be completely pain-free.  This would have been wonderful because I was really sick of the activity restriction.  Unfortunately the pain came back before the dawn of Day 299 and had me grabbing the painkillers.  I took it easy for the rest of the day but couldn’t let the sun set without some kind of exercise.  Running and weights were a definite no-no, so my only option was walking.  I did two miles on the treadmill while listening to a talk podcast.  It felt great to finally sweat and get my legs moving.  Although running would have been better, there was discomfort in my back so I played it safe.  Something is better than nothing, right?  No retreat, no surrender and no excuses!
