I've not run for over 5 weeks now. Due to a sore back and sciatica which sends glute muscles into spasm.
I've had an X-ray, which revielled Spondylosis (osteo-arthritis) in 3 vertibrae spaces. I've seen the physio, who has confirmed that the stretches I'm doing are good and added a few new ones. At Friday's physio session I also had accupuncture, which has made a difference, I'm still achy but movement is easier. I asked when I'd be able to start running again and was told not for at least another 2 weeks.
I've been looking at all the posts and there's a lot of new Parkrunners, well done everyone. I volunteered at my local Parkrun last week, it was good to see everyone running, I was amazed that the first finisher was barefoot
