No Backing Down?

Not much more than 72 hours before my long awaited return to the rugby pitch after the best part of 14 years and as it looms larger on the horizon I'm seriously beginning to question my sanity.

I survived training again last night without incident or accident, although I have been struggling over the last few days with a recurrence of some lower back pain (which is originally what caused me to stop playing in 1993) brought on, I think, my my recent bout of marathon decorating.

Unless the pain is entirely psychosomatic, caused purely by certain of my brain cells screaming at me "DON'T BE SO BLOODY STUPID," then it's something I'm going to have to keep an eye on and manage. Having built up this whole comeback malarkey, the last thing I want to do is to pull out at this stage, but equally it would be pretty stupid to play if my back's playing up. The good news is that it's no worse after training last night, so fingers crossed everything will be ok.
