My last run was Boxing Day. I did 10.5k. Then the man flu hit!! It was on my chest and lasted for 10 days. I used the "below the neck" rule. I was just looking forward to going out for a run, when I woke up with a searing pain in my left foot. I could hardly walk, let alone run. Went to my doctor who diagnosed Gout. Never had it before and have no idea what has caused it. Anyway, after another 10 days off running, it is nearly gone.
I haven't had to not run since March so I have really missed it. I don't want to injure myself so has anyone got any advice as to how to get back on the horse so to speak.
