Wish me luck.......Returning after injury break...Again !

Hi everyone

Still reading all your blogs abd feeling proud but envious of you all, out there running !

haven't run for nearly 3 weeks due to damn frustrating groin injury... But have enlisted the help of a personal trainer at the gym who specialises in running.

He insisted I do nothing until our first session next monday....he is going to teach me strengthening and conditioning and fitness work, all intended to help prevent further injury.

So twice a week with him and 2 runs a week....if I'm not a running goddess by the end of this.........!

great news about tee shirts...well done all involved :)

Glad to hear that you are on the mend and have a personal trainer to help you on the way :)

Good luck!


Theres no reason why you cant get back to full fitness just listen to your body. I graduated for the first time last December then was struck down with full blown sciatica which crippled me for nearly 2 months and stopped me running for 3. I repeated C25K all over again and graduated a second time in May, I havent had any problems since (touch wood). Good luck with your return and as I said before listen to your body and your PT too.


Thanks for your support Oldgirl, I didn't realise you'd done it twice.

Serves me right for doing a 9k on top of a niggly groin.

It's all learning and experience, isn't it ?

Have only done 2 runs at the beginning of June....feel really sluggish and eating like a navvy ! :)
