2.5 miles at the run clinic last night. We had a wonderful, but really long, talk from a local physio on injury prevention. It was really interesting and I've been to her clinic before, we chatted afterwards and I'm going to make an appointment to see her specifically when the latest back pain flare up is gone to do a full strength/flexibility assessment. It feels a bit like whack-a-mole at the moment where every time I tamp down one flare up, something else flares. Because the clinic is in the same place as my personal training (as in, I work out 10' away from the clinic door!) she knows my trainer so agreed that we can all work together to fix my mess of a spine
Anyway, the run was much better than Wednesday night despite being far later in the evening than I prefer which meant my belly was rumbling before we started - a 6.30pm run means late lunch & dinner after; an 8pm run is a whole other beast. Still it was nice & the lady that isn't far off my pace was there so we ran together which helped.
And in really good but not wanting to jinx myself news - I've slept the last couple of nights on the sofa and while it's lousy quality/quantity of sleep...my back hasn't hurt either morning
Next question is whether this fixes it and I can return to the substantially wider bed or whether the pain returns if I do so. If the latter I have no idea what I'll do - I'm essentially in a long stay hotel so I don't see any chance they'll replace the mattress.
