The corner of it is very rocky and compact, and then it happened. I hurt my back - but I was almost done, so I decided to tough it out. 5 minutes later I was hunched over and writhing. The pain was damn near unbearable. I couldn't even walk without help. My lovely wife helped me get inside, ran me a scorching hot bath (and helped me get into it), feed me ibuprofen, rum and coke, and massaged me. I literally had tears rolling out off my checks, awful pain. One day later, a few hot baths, more ibuprofen and I'm still sore, but feeling much better. Taking it easy for a few days.

Bummer! Check around online, there are exercises to strengthen your back. I'm doing them these days, as I have had recurring back pain for years. (I AM old, though- 63)
