Hey everyone, I only found out I was running this 2 weeks ago, so had no time to train or anything. I had only ran a half before, so I was delighted to finish at around 5 hours 40. I can see why everyone gets addicted despite the pain! Thanks to all the marshalls who were great and it was nice seeing the same faces again and again on the day. Special mention to the canteen staff who were so cheery, even when the likes of us came through quite late on. Must hsve been a long day for everyone. I hope to return next year now
I seem to have put my back out from sitting awkwardly at the football on Saturday (typicaly it's not directly from running!). Yesterday was a nightmare moving anywhere (I really struggled to stand up straight), but today I am just about getting aound the office at work. Can anyone suggest anything obvious to me that may help. Are hot baths helpful? Should I be standing/walking around as much as possible to keep me moving?
I am entered for the Folkestone 10 on Friday and I am determined to make it, although obviously won't risk doing any further damage if it is still bad.
Usually when I get the odd back pain it tends to go within a day, although I do run a lot more these days. Any advice would be gratefully received.
