neurosurgeon and I decided to wait and see what would happen.
Do you know what shin splints are? I walked a lot while in Providence RI, and noticed that my left leg felt like that (shin splints), and I'm sure it was from the disc issue irritating a branch of the sciatic nerve. This sounds like I know what I'm talking about, ya? Whatever.
I've decided to join a fitness center (see image above), and it's this one. I want to build up my core strength. This is a fancy way of saying that this will strengthen the muscles that support the disc, as well as make me more healthy.
The fitness center has group classes as well as personal trainers. I used to take yoga, and was pleased to see it is offered three days a week. It is supposed to be good for flexibility, but I rather liked how it made me feel -- more relaxed. Do you know what zumba is? What about powerball or cardio kickbox? Boot camp -- now that sounds rigorous. They have other stuff, too.
Do you belong to a gym or athletic center? Do you have trouble motivating yourself to go? Is it worthwhile for you?
