Couch to 5K

Back on the IC after Parkrun 🙄

Back on the IC after Parkrun 🙄

Got up this morning to blizzard conditions 🌨

Didn’t put me off going out though, so donned my shorts, vest and jacket....and shoes of course...and set off in a howling bitter wind!

I was really up for this, and felt good as I made my round the course through the mud and numerous unavoidable puddles/ponds 😖

Then at 4.3k I felt the hamstring in my right leg pop, ouch that hurt, forcing me to hobble the rest of the way. Another session on the IC, 10days after recovering from my last injury....non running related! 🤬

Happy running guys, have a good weekend whatever you’re doing 😎

I recovered from a 2wk shin injury 10days ago then did 27k in the last 10days....could’ve been too much after the lay off! 🙄

Oh Ted. 🙁 If I were you, I would get myself to a physio. Hamstring injuries are tricky (trust me). Take care and rest! x

Oh no! Sorry to hear this Ted, not having much luck recently. I'm on the IC too with piriformis syndrome. Not much fun eh. Keep us posted on how things are and fingers crossed it's better soon. No rushing it though :)

I had to google your ailment fpf, painful if it’s anything like sciatica 😬

I’m making an appointment to see a sports physio, hope they can sort it 😊

Trouble is, when you get to a certain age, you don’t mend too quickly 🙄

Get better soon 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️
