Well, I thought I had just posted a reply, but it seems to have disappeared!
VDOT52, I apologise for taking offence if you were genuinely trying to be helpful.
I have done three runs now and so far so good. I've taken it very slowly and stuck to 5k or less - I plan to keep doing this for the next two or three weeks before very slowly upping my distance but not my speed.
Maybe I was trying to go too fast, I don't know, but I hope the pain doesn't come back again. I guess time will tell
I haven't actually been running since I posted that, I've been ill again, plus it's been difficult to get out with mine and husband's work schedules being a bit hectic and he ran a half Marathon at the weekend (so me and the kids were on cheering on duty!), but I'm hoping to try a gentle run tomorrow. I'll let you know how I get on
Senid that's slightly unfair. I did say on again/off again runner and have had periods since 2008 of noit running for several monthsto years- I've even had a baby during that time. I've never had this problem before though.
Thanks for all the helpful advuce, it is much appreciated
I really really can't think of anything, my only regular medication is a nasal spray, but I've been on that for years , and symbicort (when I remember to take it). I have had a couple of colds recently and one turned iinto sinusitis which is why I had the two weeks off. I have had low calcium levels iin the past soi guess I should try and get that checked. Maybe a visit to the GP is in order.
I'll keep wracking my brains to see if I can think of anything else
