Ouch, Ouch, Ouch, Ouch, Ouch… seriously, OUCH!


It’s been a great week!  The sun has been glorious all week, I started work on a new show which I’m really enjoying, and I managed to fit in training on both Tuesday and Thursday night and did the 25 min plod both times.  Brilliant!   

So, yesterday I got up full of the joys of spring, with the intention of doing some gardening.  The plan was to cut the grass first, then put a few more bulbs in around the place, so that I’d have some lovely flowers later in the summer, then get the chairs out and enjoy a glass of something delicious in the evening sun… but disaster struck.  Leaning over to hoe the ground ready for the bulbs, I felt something in my back go snap!  And not just a twinge of an ‘ouch’, a proper scream out in pain ‘SNAP’.  

I’m pretty sure it’s a muscle rather than a disc problem, but I’m in agony.  I can’t walk – only shuffle.  I can’t even stand up straight, I can barely move.  I’m so upset.  Hopefully I won’t be out of action for too long, but my training will certainly suffer, which puts the whole 10k in doubt. 

Fingers crossed, I’ll fix quickly, and then I can get back to the plodding.  But for today, I’m propped up with 5 cushions on the sofa feeling rather sorry for myself.

‘Till the next time…
