Hi. Don't normally post as I dont know what to say half the time, but here goes. I had just started W4 when I decided to run outdoor for run 2 (I normally run on a tradmiill. Anyway completed the run felt ok then 3 days later I'm in hospital being treated for celulitus in the left leg. That was 4 weeks ago, I had 15 days of intravenous antibiotics but now just penicillin tablets 4 times a day. Im still off work and the left leg is still swollen. The hospital dont know what causes it, but I'm just saying to be careful as theres lots of nasty little nasty things out there at the moment.
Feeling low: Hi. Don't normally post as I dont... - Couch to 5K
Sorry to hear this my friend had cellulitis three times and she’s a runner (not related though) but she got infection from the sea when there was a sewage spill in Worthing. I hope you can get back to the running soon. I know there are lots of people on the IC right now and I’m only just coming off it and back to week one after three months of hardly being able to run . You will get there 🙂🙂
Goodness... I really, really empathise... I had an infected horsefly bite a few weeks back..it and the antibiotics, seven days worth 2000 mg a day really zapped me!
Mine too turned into cellulitis, but I was lucky and it was being treated within 48 hrs of the bite! It was alas very obvious where the bite was..
There are some horrid creatures out there and the horseflies have been particularly virulent, and a rise in tick bites too !
Hopefully you will begin to feel much better soon.... and the runs will still be there As will we
Oh how sad. Are you able to do some gentle yoga maybe? I do yoga alongside running and it’s so relaxing. There are lots of videos on YouTube to follow (I personally love Yoga with Adriene). She has lots of different intensity videos for any/all parts of the body.
Maybe yoga hasn’t ever been your thing, but it’s worth a try perhaps?
Hope you make a speedy recovery. ❤️🙂
