How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Hoggle, boo to the back pain - sounds like sciatica to me. My hubby is currently crippled with it too, Caro. He was just about to start rowing again following his cruciate ligament reconstruction last September, then his back suddenly went after some threatening twinges over a few weeks. Sent him to my chiro for a couple of sessions which helped, doctor prescribed some strong painkillers and anti-inflammatories and referred him for physio. It's eased off a lot now but he is very stiff first thing - struggles to bend over enough to get his socks on. He's just paying for social membership at the rowing club at the moment because he can't really row properly - just hoping it gets better soon for him. Personally I think another couple of sessions with the chiro would help but he's too tight to pay for treatment!
Most of the snow had gone by last night so was able to get out for my 7 miles. The time passed SO much faster than when I ran on the treadmill on Tuesday. Even though it was freezing cold, icy rain blowing in my face, and a strong wind it was lovely to run outside. I'd only done one indoor session and that was enough! JT, the treadmill in the gym is set to an hour and after that it switches off. So when the hour was up I'd done just shy of 8 miles and then had to restart it for the rest of the run. Also had a weird 'sea legs' sensation when I got off and found it hard to walk, maybe because I'd been on it for so long!
JT, have fun with your houseful of boys!
Camlo, I know - I really must get myself some offroaders as I do quite a lot of that these days. I always seem to need to replace my road shoes though and can't afford two pairs at once. Will have a look online and see if I can get any for a good price
Happy Valentines to everyone! K was very upset this morning that hubby and I had cards to open and he didn't - he said he felt very left out Might buy him some chocolates or something just to cheer him up!
