I was after some advice and encouragement! About 18mths ago I had never run in my life. For some reason I decided to run the FLM and raised £3k for charity. Truly one of the greatest days of my life.
Unfortunately, I found out after the race that the pain I suffered just before the Mara was a prolapsed vertebrae and as such did untold damage to my back by running even 1 mile, let alone 26!
Anyway, long story short, I have hardly laced on my shoes since, and neet to get started again. The frustration I know I will have is that 6months ago I could run 26 miles and now I will probably struggle to manage 1 (A little bit of puddin has found its way onto the middle!).
Has anyone been through the same? How did you cope and get going again? I am thinking of entering a couple of races to see if this gets me going!
Happy Christmas and thanks for listening!!
