Back to the Back

by Tom Swift

Sorry to keep you hanging. An update on my back: After a couple of crabby days off, I was able to loosen it up enough to return to my lifting program yesterday. (Strangely, my shoulder lifts caused more concern and required a greater drop-down in weight than those of the back.) This is good for me and anyone who happens to be near me. The next day I am stiff and sore and whiny but entirely less so. I do believe I am going to beat this thing, damn it. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
