Back soon...

I've decided to stop pushing myself and after having to take a break on Sunday again because of my back, will now take a month off.

Even if I feel great, I'm not going to run in November.

Then when I start again in December, I'm going to start by doing short distances and will increase them by a km or two each week.

If that doesn't work, I don't know what will. I think it's the only thing I can do if I want to have a hope of running in the Adelaide marathon again. I really really want another chance to get a better time.

I hate not running and I think this month is going to kill me.

Keep your fingers crossed for me...

Needless to say, I don't think I'll be updating this blog but if you want to follow along with other parts of my life, you can tune into my musings blog

See you in a month...

  1. I'm sure the break will give your back time to rest a bit, and you'll be able to get back in those running shoes. Since you mentioned exercise is good for your back, maybe your plan for starting out with short distances and gradually building up your distance will be a solid approach that will minimize your back pain.
