Reader's Workout: The Color Run aftermath

Reader's Workouts is a weekly event which is hosted over at Joy's Book Blog.


I woke up Saturday morning with some slight back pain. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to do the walk, but was determined to show up to support the rest of my group. I got there and took my time walking around to get signed in and trying to find the group. My back was feeling okay so I did the walk.

I had so much fun, but couldn't stick around for the after party. My back just couldn't handle standing much longer. I spent the rest of the day just chilling in the house with a friend. It was worth it!


  1. It's great that you went ahead and did it even though you were in pain!!
    Hope you're back is much better now!

  2. Yay -- 12,000 steps is a lot! That's a lot of blue you got there.

    I find it harder on my back to stand than walk. I did some work with yoga and figured out a way to stand that works better with my back (hips tucked under with knees slightly bent), but even that only works for so long.

  3. Yea I really got hit with the blue. Yellow was the least, confined mostly to my right ear. Purple was my back but only because my friend rubbed her's off on me.

    Walking was okay, it was the standing that started to bother me. I end up pacing during the day when my back starts to bother me.

  4. My back is getting there. Thanks!
