To keep the years at bay To destress after work and anything else that 'bugs' me To prove to myself that I can do something well for myself To show that even after back problems that I can return to successful running even if slow. To challenge myself, setting my own goals and the sense of achievement that comes with attaining them.
I've not suffered bad depression but have been through some low times and they felt bad enough. All the advice above will help you and I was given the same when even getting up was a struggle. Try and end each day with a positive thought, even if its that you did get up. Try writing it down at the end of the day. You are welcome to e-mail me if you wish. Take care VR. xx
Thank you all for support and help. I'm taking anti-inflammartories and using a hot water bottle for local heat. Physio tomorrow when I hope he'll be able to start loosening my shoulder as it's painful and I'm having problems turning my head from one side to the other. I'll just have to try and be patient knowing that I will get back to running!
I saw the physio on friday but he didnt want to treat it because the muscles were in spasm. He did ultra sound and then taped the area, my left shoulder/neck area seems worst affected. X rays at the hospitalshowed no damage to the bones so it all seems to be soft tissue damage. I'm looking for a ray of hope as i haven't run since before x-mas and I really didn't need this!
I'm not having any luck with my running, I was just about to start again and was on my way home when the car slipped on ice and I ended up in a ditch. To cut a long story short i have whiplash and wondered if anyone knows how long this takes to clear up and how long before I can run again?
