I haven’t posted on here for a few weeks as I injured my back a couple of weeks ago.
Unsure of how I did this, it had been niggling for a few days and instead of taking a few days off work and resting it. I kept going in and working! Mainly due to the fact that I have only been in post for seven months so still trying to make a good impression with a 100% attendance record.
After speaking to my doctor on the Friday about my leg feeling numb, the doctor upped my medication and told me to go home and rest.
I took the Monday and Tuesday off work the following week, and always at the back of my mind was the fact that I was due to compete in the Manchester 10k on the Sunday! A lot of pressure given that I have raised a lot of money with my 10k races.
