Following the success of my first Parkrun, I completed another couple of Parkuns and carried on running after the C25k but then injury struck….
I’ve had a bad back for years following childhood injuries of breaking my legs at different points. I have very weak ankles and this has changed my bodies alignment. This bout of pain lasted quite a while which meant I couldn’t run as it was too painful.
Unfortunately, I also took it to mean I couldn’t do anything! Which was daft!
I didn’t run for a good 2 to 3 months and even when I got back to it, it was haphazard with no real structure and struggling to complete any longer than 3km without stopping…
It was a little soul distroying especially given the work i’d put in….
My weight loss plateaued which is not surprising but I was just frustrated with myself!
