    Hi there,

    Was working out at the local gym today when I was on the rowing machine and have now got quite bad back pains. It's not absolutely terrible, but I run at least 4 days a week and am pretty fit, so don't want it to hinder this passion. I don't go to the gym that often, this was my first time in a week or so, but it was definitely something I did on the rowing machine. Any advice on when this should clear? Could it be okay tommorow morning for example after a good nights sleep?


    Take a break. Make sure you aren't arching your back too much and are using your arms and legs to pull.

    It could be nothing or it could be serious and we have no way of telling via a few words on a screen. Smart money is on it's just a little tweak, might annoy you for a few days and then be fine but just because that most common. If it properly hurts then rest, if it hurts when you run then don't run. Missing a few running session doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. If you wake up tomorrow and it just feels a little funny then it's fine to run. If the pain stays properly painful for a couple of days without getting better then see a doctor.
