Ok, the race post is still coming. I was finishing the warm down last Tuesday when a sharp bolt of pain struck me in the middle of my back (see red dot). Today is Saturday, and my first without prescription pain killers. It now hurts on my left side (see green dot), which reinforces the sports doctors view that it is likely to be the ligaments and tendons around the lower disc and not the aggravated disc as my physio felt was likely.

July will now be a month free from running.

I want prescription painkillers if they'll make me look like Ms Greene.

If it's free of running, you'll have plenty of time for waxing.

That's kind of a bad news/good news story, right? Pain is bad but not having a disc problem is good.

Nice choice of photos. Hopefully the back gets better soon.

WHAT sort of prescription drugs were you taking. IHT must be getting a bit confused by the transformation.

July is nearly over!

I prefer the "not so bad " option. No discussions.
