I saw a different physio last week as my regular guy was not available, and he gave me a couple of new stretches to try. He also did some work on my upper back too - and after informing me that 'if we're lucky we might get a small pop' he was delighted when my back produced two very loud ones in quick succession.
Managed another outing today - decided to go back to Laura and week 1, and it was mostly ok. I could feel discomfort during the running parts but it was mostly fairly mild, and eased off during the walks. I think I'll try that again in a couple of days and see how things go.
In other news, my poor cat has joined me on the IC 😔 Seems she's injured her ear and it's now full of blood, which makes a delightful squelching sound every time she shakes her head. She got mega stressed at the vet's, and nearly impaled herself on the needle when they tried to take a blood sample, despite the death-grip the second vet had her in. The 'cat bag' was not going to work, so they ended up gassing her to knock her out. Even that didn't go smoothly, as apparently she just sat in the box and glared at them for a quite while before she finally passed out. Think I needed that run to recover!
