Grrr back injury stops play :(

Started new job, and its my own fault, but have hurt my back lifting up the children and now have to wait til its ok to continue running...so frustrating cos its a lovely day for a run and was all psyched for a 25 minute route, giving the new trainers and long pants a second outing, instead spending the day trying to keep moving gently so that work on tuesday is going to be ok.

Injuries are poopy - that is all

  • They are, Titch, and I think about the only drawbacks to running are that we're prone to them and you can't run when you've got one. I'm sidelined too atm. :-(

    Don't mess around with your back, though - if it's not a lot better by Monday get some expert advice. And meantime try a nice hot bath and a glass of whatever you fancy - and no lifting! (if possible!)

    Good luck :-)

  • Thanks Mitt, have to rest as back to work on Tues...its a bit better today, slightly less lopsided, took your advice about the glass of something ;)

  • I know where you are coming from Titch - I have recently been off work for over a week with a bad back and it is really frustrating not being able to run. But you do need to rest it and then get back in the groove gently; back problems are not funny.

    Enjoy your next run whenever that may be.

  • Thanks Sue..thinking next run prob wont be til the weekend now, as i need to be sure its properly healed. Still stiff n sore, been taking meds for pain and inflammation and hoping i can go to work tomorrow.

    Will prob tailor the runs too so i can get back into it gently, thinking a week of a 10, then 15, then 20 minute runs should take me nicely back to week 7, and i will re do week 7 then carry on with the plan.

    Which would then mean that i graduate during Christmas week - what a gift to myself that will be :D

  • Happy Christmas Titch!! :0)
