Hello all, So I just finished Day 3 and wanted to post a bit here about the exercise questions at the end. I've been doing cycling rides for three days now. I hadn't cycled since June, out of fear of provoking what I thought was a pinched nerve in my pelvis. Today, I rode a bit over 8 miles, to the nearby town. This summer, I was riding 30-50 miles, so this wasn't much, but for how out of shape I've become, it was a bit tiring! But very great to get back outside and moving. The first half of the ride, I had almost no pain at all and was really happy. Then I stopped at a store half-way through my ride and while at the check-out line, the pain hit - which of course, makes no sense if it's a pinched nerve. Told myself it was just my subconscious, and then rode back home. The second half of the ride, I was in pain, but it did go down quite a bit by time I got home. Did some meditation to calm things down, and then focused on schoolwork, and the pain got quite low, almost unnoticeable. I'll be keeping up with the cycling, weather permitting. I've also had two instances that I can add to my 'evidence list' of this being psychological and not physical. The first was yesterday, when I went driving without a donut cushion. My pain was average the first leg of my drive, but then on the way back home, it started spiking. Told myself it was all psychological. Got home, and sat in my chair at home, which I'd quit using a cushion on a few weeks ago (out of laziness, as I only have one and I'd been forgetting to carry it back in from my car these past few weeks), and the pain was quite low. Both seats had the same amount of support, but one seemed to have a conditioned response, and the other didn't! The second instance was today: when I was in pain this afternoon, I intensely focused on a camping trip that I'd take when I was 90% pain-free. I'd just gone to the physical therapist about 10 days prior and had dramatic relief from what I attribute to a brief placebo 'cure'. Kept saying to myself, "Stop pain! I know you're fake. I was better before after my 'cure', and I can feel that way again." I managed to go from quite painful to pain-free for a few seconds. It came right back, but I managed to push the pain back. Trying to convince myself that that wasn't nothing and is something I should hold onto.
