Well I was supposed to be graduated by now with week 9 runs complete but unfortunately things not quite gone as I’d hoped. I’d planned to do R1 last Saturday early evening, so spent Saturday afternoon gardening which caused my sciatic nerve to decide to give me major grief. So I’ve been laid up with incredible lower back, bum and shooting pains down my leg unable to even walk never mind run. Move forward to today and it’s still pretty bad, can’t really bend or move freely but cautiously mobile but in pain.
I’m absolutely gutted as I’ve not missed a single run of C25K, not had to re-run any and was so wanting to beat week9 by now. I’ve gone from being the fittest I’ve been in years to like a 90 year old in a very short space of time.
I’ve not ran for a week and probably won’t be able to for some time yet. Devastated!!!
So near but now so far
