Possible Setback For This Season

So it has been awhile since I updated here and I wish I could say that I am on the verge of being ready to begin my second session of triathlon. Unfortunately that is not the case...

Around mid January I felt a pain that I had not felt in 7 years...I am talking about pain in my lower back and shooting pains down my left leg. At first I thought that I had just over done it one evening but after that it continued and got worse. Finally I decided to go to the Doctor who had me take another MRI and found that my L5 disk is once again bulging and causing me major discomfort.
So right now I am not sure if I am going to be able to race this summer. Going to try Lumbar Injections and if those don't work then the Dr is will do tests to see if surgery would solve the problem. Hope that I don't have to go the surgery route since I would be down for a month and I live alone which makes it difficult

So we'll see...
