Frustration is the name of the game!! Today I should have run at Bungay at a 20k race but I am unable to run at the moment. I woke on Friday with a bad back problem. I have pain in the spine which has meant I am currently struggling to stand up straight without pain.

I still tried and didn’t give up on doing the run until Sunday morning. On Saturday and Sunday morning I tried to run and ventured out the front day only to go a few yards before I had to give in to pain from every step. Stupid really even to try as it probably hasn’t helped me recover.

I have been in a bad mood every since Friday which again is silly but it is only when you have something taken away that you realise how much you take for granted. On Friday I was just hoping to be able to stand up straight instead of working around like a hunch back.

My February curse has struck again. Last year I had the flu and hardly ran in February.

Back pain isn’t new to me. I can recall doing my back in about 18 years ago in the mundane act of changing a nappy. I know that sounds odd but I was tired and overstretched to reach a nappy and I had a big click in my back and ever since once or twice a year I have a reoccurence.

I have been to Gp’s and to be honest this is always a waste of time as they always point out that there is no cure apart from rest and they always look at more in an accusing manor once they discover that you run. I am once again taking the musle relaxation tablets and hoping for recovery before next week when I ma supposed to be doing the nearly 10 in Bury. Looks doubtful at the moment!
