I am so disappointed. I somehow strained/pulled a muscle in my back on Sunday doing week 5 run 1. It was pouring it down with rain so alot of sideways hops and jumps to avoid big puddles, but I did it I even took a selfie after as I was so wet but so proud of myself. I first noticed the discomfort about one hour after and I didn't sleep so well because of it.
Monday during the day, and then overnight, it was sooo sore and it hurt when I stood up, twist etc. so have been [reluctantly] sensible and didn't run yesterday. I was arguing with myself all day, thinking just go a walk or do week one, but it hurt to stand up so didn't. I am not sleeping very well as when I move it hurts but on the plus side, I hope to be back at it ASAP.
I have to say, i am very upset as I was making good gains in running and mentally I am ready for this.
How long should you stay off after such an injury? and has anybody else pulled their back running?
