Completed the run yesterday. I have a few questions:
1) I've noticed a few people complaining about legs and lower back problems. I have had no issues until the long runs and it isn't legs and lower back its my upper back as I have previously had two whiplash injuries. I wasn't in severe pain probably just discomfort. My question is is it ok to continue running? I want to do it but I'm not going to do it if it is going to have a detrimental affect on my back. I feel ok this morning and am wondering if I continue running will it help my back?
2) I hated it. The long runs I mean. I want to do it probably to the point of im not going to let it beat me. My question is does it get easier to do the long runs and do you enjoy it more? I was in the company of a few people recently who do park runs. I didn't tell them that I was doing 025k. One person said how much they hated it when they were doing it. Said they enjoyed before and after but hated it at the time. He is a very fit person who has cycled up mountains in France. All I could think of was does it get easier?
As part of my job I help people become more self aware. It seems to me that there's nothing to make you more self aware than doing 025k!!!
