Yip, it's me again. Long time no posts!
Short story is that having to stop running through debilitating pains in various random parts of my body in March, I was finally diagnosed by a rheumatologist in late June with Polymyalgia Rheumatica (no known cause, no cure - only treatment is steroids - long-term steroids)
However, steroids seem to have slowly calmed the pains and last month I was able to do a lot of walking without any repercussions (too much exercise can set my condition off again). So today I am going to hit the treadmill at the gym and am wondering where to start again - I am thinking maybe week 3 or week 4, and if things start hurting I can stop (and I won't be a mile from home or the car - that is the reason for starting with the treadmill)
I have been volunteering quite often at my local Park run too, but it was making me feel quite sad watching all the runners whilst not being able to join them. I even stopped reading this forum for the same reason (sadness), also because the forum is getting that many posts every day it was taking soooooo long to read them all.
So, I will let you know how I get on this morning. Laters.
