So since starting a running club in the office (5km twice a week after work) and taking advantage of the not so cold weather I came to an emergency stop when I woke up last week with an excruciating pain on my left leg. After a trip to A&E I was told this may be a trapped nerve or a slip disk or sciatic and I need to get it checked. Until the root of the pain is found, I am to stay away from any physical activity except walking or swimming.
I am feeling really gutted as earlier that day I have committed with some friends to a half marathon in June (I know is many months away but still).
I'm going to my local pool trying to find out their classes and schedules so I keep the stamina up and hope to get this resolved asap. I can't believe now that I had all the winter run sorted (got running buddies, warm clothes and a Garmin) I cannot do it!
