    That's bad, Ian -- I'm really sorry for you. Your wife's right, though -- if it's happened this time it can happen easily enough again. But, happily, there's a lot you can do. In the end, the obvious stuff is true. What matters is the muscles: the skeleton comes second. If you've got your muscles strong and flexible (the two don't always go together) you'll be OK. And the other thing is to warm up and -- most important -- warm down. I still remember one incredibly painful back muscle pull I got when I played a game of squash and then stepped into a car for a trip. Surprise, eh? So, if you come in from exercise, get changed (wet clothing will cool you down too fast) and make sure you do a bit of stretching. Best of all, have a hot bath. But, in the meantime, get better soon!

    Meh, I'll be fine. LOL, I love my wife - as I said she was just laughing at me earlier while I hobbled across the kitchen with my hand on my lower back slightly hunched over to grab more coffee and said, "so this is you in 30yrs?" Made me laugh :)

    Last night I couldn't bend over or move easily up and down the stairs, whereas today I can move around and it only hurts if I move a certain way - so it's already better in that sense. I'm sure by tomorrow I'll be fine. I'm off from work until Tuesday so I've got time to recover ;)

    Teenager showed up at 8 with two buddies and a snowblower they didn't know how to operate remotely efficiently...but insisted on keeping on trying to. Finally his dad showed up and offered to backplow out the driveway to help them manage. 3 hours, bought them lunch once my car was out' cause I had to stay out as there was nowhere to park. Got the other two cars cleared and wouldn't you know it, the one behind the other had a dead battery... AAA just left. Cleaned up the mess the kids left at the tail end as they ran out of gas... No energy left to move that car now. Going to sunroom to nap!!!
