Went to my chiropractor today for massage and adjustment. He was unable to adjust me correctly due to the pain. It appears my SI joint is "misplaced". All I can do is ice, rest, and antiimflammatories.

The pain is much better today than it has been the last couple days so I did just go out for an easy ride to see how my back would be. Riding up on the bullhorns was ok but getting in and out of aero and staying in aero was still painful.

I highly doubt I can race if my back stays like this for the next few days. I'll see how it progresses the next few days.

Wednesday - August 27

Could not run today due to back pain. The pain is excruciating and I could not sleep last night as just rolling over caused sever pain.

There is no way I can race on Monday if the pain remains like this. I cannot even bend over to put shoes or socks on.

Tuesday - August 26

Bike
  • 32m
  • 10.00 miles
  • 18.75 Mi/hr

Easy spin on a crappy hotel bike but I just wanted to keep legs moving.

Problem is I got off the bike and my back was absolutely killing me. I now have a major back issue. I cannot get up after sitting down. I can't take a deep breath because of the pain.
