I have been reading posts on here on and off for ages. I used to post all the time. I did C25k 3 yrs ago. I didnt look back. I would still look at your posts and reply now and then. I have done 5 half marathons and got my 5k time down to 30.42. A miracle!
I started having pain in my back after a year and saw physio's, had sports massages off various people, x rays (i was diagnosed with sciatica) and as a last resort went to a chiropractor. My big toe was twisted in the joint. It may have been like it for 4 or 5 years as I can pinpoint a few balance issues. He was the only one to notice. Last july I was fixed. I am still recovering. My longest continuous run is 1 mile. My 5k time is back to 40+ and my half marathons are no longer an option. I had a check up and all is well and I asked about swelling that appeared last weekend and all he could say is that I should go back to training and if it happens again I may have a stress fracture!
A few weeks ago I decided to start c25k again. I did one run and had to stop. I feel like there is always something wrong with me! I had a cold that lasted 6 weeks over christmas. I had gastroentoritis this week too. Its like my body is falling apart!
Im doing run 1 again today. Fingers crossed!
Sorry for the moaning!
