What a nerve

Well, over 3 weeks after the back went, it finally seems to be nearly fixed. Self diagnosis? - sacroiliac joint. It subsequently moved into a bout of sciatica but that is manageable with a few strategic stretches as and when required.

I do concede that participating in the Paxton X country whilst in the throes of this pain was not the cleverest idea in the box, and I am sure it would have subsided a bit earlier, had I resisted the temptation to skite about on ice and snow for 4 miles. But there you go. I was rewarded for my stubbornness by a slow time, but on the bright side, I've opened my Borders X Country 'account'.

It is the Berwick leg today, and I am looking forward to it. Feeling a bit fitter, although even short stuff at the moment is leaving my legs a little tired, simply due to lack of training......
