As triathletes, we are taught to go, go, go. We swim. We bike. We run. We lift weights. We race.   Sometimes what we don't listen to is our body telling us something is wrong, like an injury, hamstring pull or plantar fasciitis, fighting a head cold...

It was awful. It was December 29, 2017, coming back from vacation in FL. We got in early and being a dork, I did a twist and lift with my 45 lb luggage in the back of the SUV to head home. We go home. And something felt off. I stretched. Did some lower back stretching and ended up taking a nap for almost 3 hours (it was early flight).

I got up. FOOOOKKK. My back is jacked. Something isn’t right.

Long story short, as I have shared this story a lot on my social media, I have three bulging discs and dealing with degenerative disc disease.

WTF? I am 47 years old, had an EPIC year in 2017 and now I wasn’t able to freaking walk or flip turn in the pool because I pissed off the disc.

Well, you know me, instead of bitching and complaining about it. I did something about it. I learned everything I could about bulging disc, went to Stratton Sport & Spine, 3x’s a week and have to maintain my back exercises since this all started.

Today, I wanted to chat with you all about lower back pain, the muscles involved, why things happen the way they do, and some exercises that I have done with Stratton Sport and Spine!
