I got up to Week 2 run 2 and got serious man flu (a slight feeble cough!) but whilst waiting to get back to my usual unfit self my back started giving me cause for concern. I have ..in the past had three different ops to fix a couple of damaged discs and am now the owner of two artificial ones, fitted through my stomach!, which I feel are a complete success. I was not told to "not" do anything exercise wise by my consultant and have been feeling pretty good since (last op was 3 years ago)...but I now have a bit of back pain. This I hope is just my body adjusting to the fact that it has NEVER ever run before..I am a couple of stone lighter than I was as well (Atkins) so should I start again? A thirteen stone bloke can only tipy toe run so much as not to jolt his spine. btw sadly my consultant nick boeree was killed this year in a bike accident so there is no one to advise me now? Any advise would be great and I would really like to get through this podcast.
