Apologies for not posting.
As you know I picked up a chest/head cold in the week before Sydney Marathon and as it hadn't cleared by race day I decided not to run. Bit of a bugger but if I can't breathe walking I can't breathe running.
Sunday morning I put the towel back on the rack after havong a shower and promptly twisted my back or pinched a nerve maybe. Had to get physio on it on Tuesday which helped it a bit but it is still very sore. This is the lower back which makes bending to put on clothes and sit etc.. very painful.
At the moment I may not bother with Melbourne Marathon either until the back pain eases. I am probably better off getting myself faster for track season instead. Have a few dodgey short PB's that need fixing. Mainly the 800m, 1500m, 3k and 5k.
