I was lit­er­ally blown across the room and landed with a bang on my coc­cyx

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

landed with a bang on my coc­cyx.

I knew I had hurt my­self, but I didn’t re­alise just how badly un­til the next day when I was bend­ing over to do some gar­den­ing and couldn’t get up.

I have never known pain like it – I would rather be in labour any day – my mus­cles went into spasm and it didn’t mat­ter what I did the pain was con­stant and I could barely put one foot in front of the other.

The next day I went to see my GP, who pre­scribed some heavy-duty pain killers and mus­cle re­lax­ants, but three days later I was no bet­ter. I went back again and this time he took one look at me, signed me off work for two weeks and man­aged to get me an emer­gency ap­point­ment with a phys­io­ther­a­pist the fol­low­ing week.

Three weeks down the line I am now up­right and back at work, but still very stiff and un­com­fort­able.

I haven’t been able to do any ex­er­cise and I am now wor­ried the half-marathon I was giv­ing my­self plenty of time to train for is ap­proach­ing fast, and I am ba­si­cally go­ing to have start my regime from scratch. I am, how­ever, de­ter­mined to do the race even if I have to walk it. I could break a record for do­ing the race in the slow­est pos­si­ble time!
