Running outside during winter
January 27, 2022
Lower back pain, that's what made Dave Thynes start running one fall, almost a decade ago. He'd grown tired of going to the medicine cabinet for multiple ibuprofen, and occasionally having to resort to pain killers, as a means to cope with "goofed up discs." He chipped away at running and, after a rocky period of his back adjusting, it became his new thing.
"By the wintertime I was feeling really good with my gains, and I had lost a lot of weight," Thynes says. "So, I just went ahead and got some of those stretchy grippers, that you can get at the drug store, and kept at it real lightly."
