Hi . This is my first post . I’ve been progressing well with my runs and even though I’ve been finding it tough, I’ve been enjoying the challenge and the sense of achievement. I’ve been encouraged by other peoples posts and tips.
I had a bit of niggly back lower pain, before I started the run, but that’s nothing new to me . A result of years of lifting as a nurse . It usually gets better if I keep moving and try not to tense up.
I ran initially on tarmac on my local park and then as this was uncomfortable, I switched to running on the grass. This was fine until I got home but I’ve had sciatic pain on one side since.
That was 2 days ago. Wasn’t able to go out today as it’s too painful 😖.
Not sure what to do now as I’m keen to keep going but don’t want to make things worse.
Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
