Last Monday while flipping the dinghy over I pulled my back. Nothing unusual about that: I'm getting to that sort of age where aches and strains are a natural occurrence. I realise I'm no spring chicken.
But this strain degenerated into the most abject agony, so much so that I couldn't sit for very long and had to get up and relieve the pain every 20 minutes or so.
Eventually it got so bad I had to take time off work and just lie down, bored.
Which brings me to the point of this post: After a couple of days resting, I can now sit in a chair with a dull ache, rather than abject agony.
But guess what, the weather is ideal sailing weather. Typical!
So my crook back will relieve me of yet another weekend of boatyness.. 2015 isn't looking to be a good sailing season at all.
