My theory is that a conspiracy took place to have someone hit me in the back with a pipe while I was
skating training sleeping.
Either that, or I’m just getting older. This is the way my back used to feel for a couple of days after playing 80 minutes of rugby at 2nd row. That was one of the major factors in stopping–mostly because I was not much value to any team at any place other than 2nd row.
Now this is the way my back feels for 5 days after playing rugby in general.
The Missus says I need to focus on engaging my core and pushing my hips forward before coming into contact. So…a head’s up…
The next time we are about to collide, don’t be surprised if I ask you to hold up a second while I transition from tree, to down dog, then slowly roll my spine into the correct position and get centered.
Then you can run over me and it won’t hurt quite as bad.
