Weâ€™re in London this Friday/Saturday so Iâ€™ve brought my running kit down in the hope I can get a good run out on the canal on Saturday morningâ€¦
BUT â€“ I woke up yesterday (well, woke up would imply sleep â€“ I got upâ€¦) unable to turn my head without sharp, shooting pain. Iâ€™d heard of pinched nerves and the like, from sleeping funny but never experienced it so I took to the Doc. Her advice? Move it as much as possible, take painkillers and apply heat. Frustrating as a set of remedies though that may be for a speedy recoveryâ€¦
Itâ€™s significantly better today (I can turn my head) but who knows what state Iâ€™ll be in tomorrow. Fingers crossed I donâ€™t have to make up distance in my 10km/weekly minimum running distance (which really needs upping) another day/weekend.
I still need to find a race as a stake in the ground for my training. Any thoughts on an early April half marathon in the UK?
