I don’t think I have ever felt as sorry for myself as last night, limping home after managing a mere 3 miles before the familiar pain returned. With 5 weeks to go before my 1st marathon I realised my marathon hopes are temporarily over. Having seen a physio who crunched my back, kneaded my legs and stuck needles in my hips, I thought I was on the road to recovery, especially after a 2 week holiday where I didn’t don my running shoes once but did plenty of “pool running” as advised.
So, last night, instead of ticking off another run on my marathon training schedule I sobbed on the phone to my mum, downing a large glass of wine and feeling utterly cr*p.
Does anyone have any good advice on what to do now? Do I just keep resting? If the physio can’t sort it, who do I look to next? Can anyone recommend anyone local to the Aylesbury area?
Any advice much appreciated, or I shall have to find the answers in another bottle of wine!
