Early morning and ready to head out to the golf course. The morning weather is perfect and the sky is blue. After my shower I'm feeling energetic and am only slightly stiffer than usual. I bend down slowly and reach out with my right arm, the goal being to lift up the carry bag containing my clothes. Before my hand gets even half way, something in the lower right half of my back pops. Just above the hip towards my third lumbar. Or is it my second lumbar? Feels like it makes some sound, but I do not hear anything. I think oops and freeze in mid-air afraid to move any further. The pain has not yet been triggered, but it will come. I slowly stand back up and then it hits me. Oops double whammy this time. I was really looking forward to a great round of golf and look at me now. Oh well, better luck next time. Four days later and the soreness is receding somewhat, but I still need to be careful. Next weekend I'll be ready to go and shoot a record round of golf.
