Question about Riding with Sprained Back
A few days ago, I woke up with a stiff and strained back. I probably slept wrong, and have also been coming off of medication that's known to cause sore muscles. Either way, my back has been getting better each day, and today, I decided to do a ride. While I noticed that my back was bothering me a little bit, I also noticed that I was putting more weight on my hands while I rode. Could this increased hand pressure be because of my strained back? My fit was good before this injury, so I imagine that it's the lack of core strength due to my back still recovering, but would like some input on this. What would you do in this situation? Keep my regiment, or scale it back until the back is fully healed?
