You need to strengthen your inner core.

Pop down to Akihabara and buy a Wii and a Wii Fit with the palates program. Go On!

It's really close to Starbucks too - maybe you can get that latte while you're there

Sorry to hear this GD. Perhaps we should console ourselves with some pizza and icecream

Re: I did my back in!

As one whose work involves a lot of lifting and bending (and I am nearly 54) and who occasionally gets a bad back as a result, the BEST advice is as follows.

Take pain killers in moderation to help you sleep, and continue life as normal..taking it fairly gently. The back will slowly but surely sort itself out. IMHO Chiropractors and the like do as much harm as good, unless you have a diganosed back deformity, or a slipped disc.

Gentle exercising and stretching will also help..but keep it gentle.

AlfaLincs (This advice came from my doctor..and oddly enough matched the advice given by my long jump/triple jump coach 35 years ago...and he had a degree in Sports Science..they are right!!)
