Ruthie Posted November 12, 2015 Report Share Posted November 12, 2015 Just come back from my W5D1 run, which I was supposed to have run on Tuesday; however, as we all know, life doesn't always go according to plan. Up until Sunday, everything was fantastic. I ran Sunday and Saturday back to back, and Sunday was really hard for me. I had a real hard time finishing the run sections, but pushed through and did. By Sunday evening my back was out (I have had back problems for years). Got stuck half way between sitting and standing (which is how I know my back is out ). This is not unusual, and could or could not be related to running (although I do think that four times a week was pushing it for me)... anyway, I got myself some anti inflammatory pills, which usually do the trick, went for a walk on Tuesday, relaxed yesterday and decided that come hell or high water - I would be running today. Once I hit my stride walking - the back-pain and limp disappear - so I thought - why not try running, it might have the same effect. And I did. I ran all three runs easily and could have kept going, but stopped. The plan is to keep on running only three days a week. I have found a sports shop in a nearby town where they fit shoes properly, and have decided that at least for this first pair of running shoes, especially considering my back, it is probably a good idea to try them on and not buy them online. So I am as pleased as punch and really hope that I will not regret running today... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
