My 5k journey – has stalled…

Female legs jogging on a trailThis time last week I woke up to find the right side of my neck and shoulder seriously swollen and very painful. After blaming my husband for thumping me in the night (well, why not?), I began to treat it with ice, heat, very strong painkillers and Reiki/massage.

Today is the first day that I have not found myself in complete agony and the swelling appears to be finally receding. Needless to say that I have not been out training for well over a week now, thus my 5k journey is in a holding pattern.

All being well and if recovery continues as it is, then I plan to try a gentle run again on Monday. I will keep you posted!

Who ever said that running and exercise was good for your health…?

      • Yes am keeping well thanks, still getting out and about, just waiting for summer to start!Take care love Barbie xx


    • Thanks, Mark. Yes, when I trained before I kept pushing even when it hurt and I think that didn’t really help. This time I am being sensible – hopefully! I have until October for the actual event so I should be okay. Thanks for your thoughts. 😊
