I guess I shouldn't complain as this is the first time in several years that my lower back has given me any problems. Unfortunately I seem to have done a real bang-up job this time and have no idea what caused it.
I left work early Tuesday to visit the doctor with a sore back and pain shooting down my left leg. He gave me a couple prescriptions and sent me for x-rays the next morning. I'm back at work today with a heating pad for the leg and under the influence of the "happy pills" If my posts are stranger than usual you can blame the pills.
I'm hoping the x-rays don't show anything major and I can be back on the bike in a week or two. This certainly puts a damper on my training for TOSRV. I doubt I'll be ready for back-to-back centuries but I'm hoping to be able to do the 1/2 TOSRV. The half is 50 miles each day.
