I celebrated the only way a runner can!!

I celebrated the only way a runner can!!

Today I had my last session of acupuncture for PF I have been suffering from. Over the past 5 weeks I have had 4 sessions and each session has seen an improvement over the few days after the treatment. Its two weeks since the last session and I have walked miles with some pain but its always settled down and been good by the next day. I'm still wearing my sleeping splint but feel this time the treatment has been successful. (fingers crossed)

So having been given the OK to start with low impact aerobics and aqua gym then if all is still good in a couple of weeks I can get back out there running. Short distances and building up slowly and gradually. With that wonderful news I just had to celebrate and as luck would have it Run4It had a sale on, so a girls got to do the right thing I'm sure you would all agree. Yep NEW SHOES, :)

For those who asked for an update if acupuncture helped my sinus problem, what sinus problem!?! :) It was relieved after two sessions, well worth giving it a try, almost instant relief from pressure headache and nasal passages clear, it worked while two lots of antibiotics did no good at all.

I'm off to walk around the house now in my new shoes, happy running everyone. :)
