(BIG BROTHER GEORDIE BLOKE VOICE)
Day 9 in the Big Injury House. Dan is still recoverin' from a pulled back muscle.......
This lovely weather we've been having in SE England has made it harder to be on the damned injury couch, because there's nothing I like better than absorbing a healthy does of vitamin D. Spring is my kinda season folks. I love the light changing, I love the smells of things growing in the garden and I love the sounds too (can't think of any spring sounds right now, but you get the picture).
I have managed a few walks successfully. I had absolutely no idea how debilitating this pulled muscle could have been. There are folks who have informed me of putting their back out whilst picking up the phone. Or even putting their socks on! Streuth.
Well, my original ailment was my right leg - but because of this confounded back problem, I've almost forgotten what the leg problem was!! I'm visiting Mrs Podiatrist on Wednesday for another credit card thrashing, so I'm hoping it will bear fruit, in that once I've been given an MOT for my bio mechanics, I will run cleaner, meaner and more streamlined.
In the meantime I'm toying with the idea of having a run tomorrow - 3K or so. Just to test the water so to speak. Not having run for 9 days is making me grumpy and crotchety! Especially when I read about you all doing so BRILLIANTLY well, I just want to don my lycra pants and get out there!
Got this 10K race on the 21st, so a couple of weeks to get in shape for it. I should be tickety boo for that - at least I'd better be. Then my next distance goal is going to be ten miles. I need to work towards something, so I've decided that seeing as I once ran 8 miles a few weeks ago, I see no reason why I can't nudge up the mileage to 10. That will be a major feather in Dans Hat I can tell you.
In the meantime, enjoy your forthcoming week of running. Be careful out there. It's a jungle innit?
