On Sunday, when training with some weights, I felt a pain in my lower back ... ouch. I immediately applied ice, took some ibuprofen and stopped exercising.
On Monday I went to the physio and was relieved to discover that it isn't at all serious and that I can continue running ... so long as I continue with the 2Is * No weight training for a while though and I've booked a couple of light massages. The first was this morning and I fell much better.
After that scare I'm fully confident of being completely pain free and back to normal next week.
Must congratulate Debbie Martin-Consani on her fantastic run in the Grand Union Canal Race at the weekend. She finished first in appalling weather and set a new women's course record. And, I would suggest, secure her place in the UK team for the World 24 hr Championships - although that is for the selectors to decide when they meet at the weekend. Well done Debbie.
* 2Is ... ice and ibuprofen
