Okay, so my back is still hurting, but I have to keep on going! There is so much to do, and time is slipping away.The pain is really bad and reminds me of the time I went on a skiing trip with my school.
We went as a group and I had never skied before, so I was nervous, but a couple of us went to the "bunny slope" because we were newbies, and attempted, mind you I said attempted to ski down this big hill! (Now my perception of this hill is from a never before been skiing person, and it looked huge and long and deadly!) Well, my first time to attempt to go down (when I could stand up on the damn skis without falling over, was a disaster! We were told that we should take the lessons, and we didn't. Most of the slopes offer this for new skiers. So, I only went a few yards and then I fell, and when I fell, on the way down, I must have twisted, because the medics said I pulled all the muscles in my back, and that I should have relaxed when I fell and it wouldn't have been so bad!
Easy for them to say...I was so rigid it wasn't even funny! A board would have looked more pliable than I was going down that hill!
Anyway, we should have taken advantage of the ski training that was offered by the nice people at the lodge, but being teenagers, we were embarrassed and thought we could figure it out.
Again with the Yeah right!
Next time I go skiing, I will gladly have a nice gentleman show me the proper way to stand and ski. And then maybe I won't get injured on the first day of the trip!! I had to stay in the lodge by myself while everyone else was out having fun, and put cold and hot compresses on my back, and rest and take it easy. I would highly recommend that anyone going skiing for the first time, go to a ski camp, and/or take lessons!!
So this pain in my back has brought back the memory of the pain from the ski trip, I'm not sure I really wanted to remember it, or the pain in the back!!
Till Next Time,
