Beyond frustrated and annoyed!

I just got back into week 2 and had a car accident this morning, got rear-ended!! 😑😲 Off to the doctor's tonight, have back pain. So if I am not on the forum for a while I am waiting for the all clear to run again.

I've been benched! Dr reckons I can run short bursts on grass only in a week or so. Soft tissue damage to neck/shoulder/upper back 😡😲 so have to lay off pounding the pavement for now. I think I will be taking my boy swimming as an alternative.

Really sorry to hear about your accident Mel,must’ve been awful! Get well soon and come back out again when you’re feeling better, maybe you could swim C25k instead?! Take care 😊

Thanks for asking πŸ’ž I am getting better, but I am right handed so my shoulder/arm is still painful as I use it for everything. Hoping to be back out there soon.

Oh no! Bless you - you really have been through it. Hope you are now on the mend. At least you were OK (ish) after the accident - must have shaken you up. I used to work in car insurance- logging claims & I know how much it shakes people up - even if it's only a small bump. Try not to feel too frustrated - as someone said on here earlier - running will always be there for you so don't rush back too quickly.

Hi Mel hope you are improving. I’m on the IC too and having to just walk and do a little gentle cycling too. I may start back after a couple of weeks. Let’s hope we both can !
