Along with rude organizers spinning me out of control into someone I'm not Saturday, karma bit me in the ass Sunday and I threw my back out cleaning stalls.
I felt a pang when I tossed the poo into the wheelbarrow and 5 seconds later I was literally crippled with agony. I couldn't move. Couldn't breathe. Couldn't function.
Essentially, I hobbled to my car, stifled sobs of pain and laid in bed the remainder of the day popping pain pills and icing my back. I felt like the most helpless human on earth and I was baffled as to how a 25 year old threw their back out with no previous back problems or strains. Quite literally in the top 3 most painful things I've ever experienced, and I got dry socket after my wisdom teeth were pulled.
I can say this one thing, I will NEVER question people with back pain ever again, or take for granted a healthy back. Sunday and Monday especially were horrendous and today is only about 40% better.
Therefore, with my back issues and B with no front shoes, I decided to suck it up work him a little in the soft grass on the lunge. Sick of things beating me down (multiple human injuries, bad timing, lost shoes, etc), I am determined to keep him in work as long as he is comfortable and sound. SO I said what the heck, slapped some side reins on and took the baby for a spin.
Despite my actual, not exaggerated, agony, I was able to move ever so slightly and ridiculously and get a good 15 min lunge in with B. He was lovely and I was quite surprised with how fluid and responsive he was moving having pulled two shoes the day before.

Fingers crossed this won't take more than a few days to get better, but who knows.
