So I haven't run for a while due to the IC, but I notice the IC getting more comfortable and the prospect of a 5K more intimidating.
I think the time has come to get off the IC and back out running. The twinge in my back is still there, but a minor annoyance rather than a debilitating, 5-year-old crybaby inducing, centre-of-the-universe type pain.
I did consider doing a few K rather than 5K but 'me running a 5K' is still a fragile concept in my head and if I don't do a 5K the gremlins almost certainly will win and 5K will become a 'thing', if you know what I mean.
So, a slow, gentle, flat 5K is on the cards for tonight. Will let you know how it goes!
